Kvaerner Proposes New Board of Directors

Thursday, November 29, 2001
Kvaerner, the international engineering and construction group said that the board election committee had reached a decision concerning nominations for a new board to be elected at the extraordinary general meeting in Oslo, Norway, later today. The nominations are as follows: Kjell Inge Rokke, Helge Lund, Anders Eckhoff, Tore Tonne, Reidar Lund, and Yngve Hagensen. The election committee consists of Ragnhild Wilborg (chairman), head of investments for ODIN Forvaltning, Allen Akerstedt, president of Storebrand Kapitalforvaltning, and Kjell Inge Rokke, chairman of Aker RGI. The current board of Kvaerner advised the election committee yesterday that its members were prepared to resign their positions following the announcement of a preliminary agreement between Kvaerner and Aker Maritime. As a consequence the election committee received a proposal for a new board from Aker Maritime ASA. The committee consulted with other major shareholders and concluded that there were no objections to the proposal by Aker Maritime; no additional or alternative proposals were given to the election committee.
