The Annual General Meeting of shareholders (AGM) elects a minimum of five and a maximum of eight directors for a term of one year. A person who has reached the age of 66 at the time of election may not become a member of the Board of Directors. There is no special order of appointment of the members.
The Board evaluates the independence of its members annually or, if necessary, more often. Each member of the Board of Directors is obligated to provide the Board of Directors with sufficient information to allow an evaluation of their independence.
Procedure and meeting practices
The Amer Sports Board of Directors approves rules of procedure to govern its work, including a schedule for meetings, on an annual basis. The rules of procedure include the specific themes discussed at each meeting and discussion items reviewed at each meeting. The rules of procedure also include a schedule of the dates when the Board of Directors will visit the operations of the Company and its partners, as well as the annual evaluation of its own performance at the end of the period. Committees established by the Board of Directors assist the Board of Directors in matters that have been assigned to them.
The Board of Directors convenes 8–10 times a year according to a predetermined annual meeting schedule and in addition when necessary. At least once a year, the Board of Directors convenes without representatives of the Company’s management in attendance. The President and CEO and the CFO participate in meetings of the Board of Directors and the General Counsel acts as secretary to the Board. Other Amer Sports executives participate in meetings as necessary.
Meeting documents and other material are delivered to the members of the Board of Directors in advance and all meetings are documented.
