Organizational Principles, Election to Board of Directors and Terms of Office

Other activities and vested interests
Dr. Thomas Schmuckli, Anton Lauber and Martin Kühn were proposed for election by the majority voting rights shareholder, Kolin Holding AG, Zug, and were elected to the board of directors of Bossard Holding AG. Dr. Thomas Schmuckli is a member of the Bossard family, which has 100 percent control over Kolin Holding AG. The members of the board of directors do not perform any activities outside of the Bossard Group other than the mandates listed and therefore do not have any significant business relationships with Bossard Holding AG or one of the subsidiaries. Furthermore, they do not have any other significant external interests.

Elections and terms of office
According to the articles of association, the board of directors consists of five to nine members. The chairman of the board of directors and the other members of the board of directors are elected by the annual general meeting of shareholders for a period of one year (until the next ordinary annual general meeting of shareholders is held). Members are elected on an individual basis. The annual general meeting of shareholders also elects the chairman of the board of directors. There are no statutory limits to the term of office; members may be re-elected. According to the OBR, however, a member of the board of directors shall offer to step down at the annual general meeting of shareholders following her or his 70th birthday. Each category of shareholders, namely the holders of registered A shares as a group are entitled to one seat on the board of directors. In 2020, David Dean was elected as the representative of the holders of registered A shares; holders of registered B shares with voting rights did not take part in this election. As a rule, the majority of the board members should be external members with no executive functions in the company. None of the members of the board of directors exercised any executive functions in the Bossard Group in the reporting year 2020.
