The Board has been further informed that SSAB’s Nomination Committee, having been informed of Bengt Kjell’s intention, has prepared the matter and decided to propose Lennart Evrell, who is currently a Board member, as the new chairman and that the number of Board members be reduced to seven (instead of eight as at present).

For the reason above, the Board will convene an extraordinary general meeting of shareholders as soon as possible by a notice to be published in due course.
