PROPOSAL BY THE NOMINATION COMMITTEE OF ALMA MEDIA'S SHAREHOLDERS FOR THE COMPOSITION AND REMUNERATION OF THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS OF ALMA MEDIA CORPORATION

The General Meeting of Shareholders of Alma Media Corporation, held on 17 March 2015, decided, by proposal of the Board of Directors of Alma Media Corporation, to set up a Nomination Committee composed of Alma Media's Shareholders. The Nomination Committee's duties include preparing proposals related to the election and remuneration of the members of the Board of Directors to the Annual General Meeting.

The Nomination Committee for the spring 2020 General Meeting of Shareholders was appointed in November 2019. Based on the ownership situation on 30 September, the following representatives of the four largest shareholders were appointed as members of the Nomination Committee: Timo Aukia, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Ilkka Group; Peter Immonen, Member of the Board, Mariatorp; Henrik Ehrnrooth, Chairman of the Board of Directors, Otava; and Timo Sallinen, Head of Listed Securities, Varma Mutual Pension Insurance Company. In addition, the Chairman of the Board of Directors of Alma Media Corporation, Jorma Ollila, has acted as an expert member in the Nomination Committee. The Nomination Committee elected Henrik Ehrnrooth as its Chair, and as Secretary, General Counsel Mikko Korttila.

Proposals by the Nomination Committee

The Nomination Committee has submitted its proposals to Alma Media's Board of Directors, to be presented to the Annual General Meeting of 2020.

Number of members of the Board of Directors and proposal for the composition of the Board

The Nomination Committee proposes to the Annual General Meeting of Alma Media Corporation, scheduled to be held on 25 March 2020, that the number of the members of the Board be confirmed as seven (7).

The Nomination Committee of the Shareholders proposes that the current Board members be re-elected for the new term of office, extending until the end of the next Annual General Meeting: Peter Immonen, Esa Lager, Alexander Lindholm, Petri Niemisvirta, Jorma Ollila, Päivi Rekonen and Catharina Stackelberg-Hammarén. The Nomination Committee further proposes that Jorma Ollila serve as the Chair of the Board of Directors and Petri Niemisvirta serve as the Vice Chair.

All the proposed Board members are assessed to be independent of the company. The members of the Board, with the exception of Peter Immonen, Esa Lager, Alexander Lindholm and Jorma Ollila, are also assessed to be independent of the company's significant shareholders. The proposed Board members are assessed to be dependent of the company's significant shareholders based on the following grounds: Peter Immonen is a member of the Board of Mariatorp Oy, Esa Lager is a member of the Board of Ilkka-Yhtymä Oyj, Alexander Lindholm is the CEO of Otava Group and Jorma Ollila has been a member of the Board of Otava Ltd. for more than ten consecutive years until 2019 (a relationship with a significant shareholder pursuant to subsection j) of Recommendation 10 of the Corporate Governance Code).

The personal details of the current members of the Board and information on their positions of trust can be found at http://www.almamedia.fi/en/investors/governance/board-of-directors.

All the proposed members of the Board of Directors have given their permission for their election.

Shareholders representing more than half of Alma Media's shares and voting rights have indicated that they support the Shareholders' Nomination Committee's proposal.

Proposal for the remuneration of the Board of Directors

The Shareholders' Nomination Committee proposes that the remuneration of the Board of Directors be kept unchanged, and that the following annual remuneration be paid to the members of the Board of Directors to be elected at the Annual General Meeting for the term of office ending at the close of the Annual General Meeting 2021: to the Chairman of the Board of Directors, EUR 62,500 per year; to the Vice Chairman, EUR 40,000 per year, and to members EUR 32,500 per year.

In addition, the Chair of the Board of Directors and the Chair of the Audit Committee would be paid a fee of EUR 1,500, the Chair of the Nomination and Compensation Committee a fee of EUR 1,000, the Deputy Chairs of the committees a fee of EUR 700 and members a fee of EUR 500 for those Board and Committee meetings that they attend. It is proposed that the travel expenses of Board members be compensated in accordance with company travel regulations.

It is proposed that the above-mentioned attendance fee for each meeting be
  • doubled for (i) members living outside Finland in Europe or (ii) meetings held outside Finland in Europe; and
  • tripled for (i) members resident outside Europe or (ii) meetings held outside Europe.

The members of the Board shall, as decided by the Annual General Meeting, acquire a number of Alma Media Corporation shares corresponding to approximately 40 per cent of the full amount of the annual remuneration for Board members, taking into account tax deduction at source, at the trading price on the regulated market arranged by the Helsinki Stock Exchange. Members of the Board are required to arrange the acquisition of the shares within two weeks of the release of the first quarter 2020 interim report or, if this is not possible due to insider trading regulations, as soon as possible thereafter. If it is not possible to acquire the shares by the end of 2020 for a reason such as pending insider transactions, the annual remuneration shall be paid in cash. Shares acquired in this way cannot be transferred until the recipient's membership on the Board has ended. The company is liable to pay any asset transfer taxes that may arise from the acquisition of shares.

Henrik Ehrnrooth,
Chair of the Nomination Committee
