Proposals of the Shareholders’ Nomination Board on the composition and remuneration of the Board of Directors of Rovio Entertainment Corporation

The Shareholders’ Nomination Board of Rovio Entertainment Corporation proposes to the Annual General Meeting in 2023 that the number of members of the Board of Directors be six (6).

The Shareholders’ Nomination Board proposes to the Annual General Meeting that Niklas Hed, Camilla Hed-Wilson, Kim Ignatius, Björn Jeffery, and Langer Lee be re-elected as members of the Board. The Shareholders’ Nomination Board further proposes that Henna Mäkinen is elected as a new member of the Board.

Henna Mäkinen, born 1981, is the CFO of Supermetrics Oy. She holds degrees of M.Sc. in Economics from Turku School of Economics and LL.M. from the University of Turku. She has a strong CFO background and hands-on experience from growth companies as well as broad corporate governance experience in publicly listed companies.

Leemon Wu has informed that she will not be available for re-election as a member of the Board of Directors.

The Shareholders’ Nomination Board proposes to the Annual General Meeting that Kim Ignatius be elected as Chair of the Board and Björn Jeffery be elected as Vice Chair of the Board.

All candidates have given their consent to the position. Among the proposed Board members, Niklas Hed, Kim Ignatius, Björn Jeffery, Langer Lee and Henna Mäkinen are independent of the company and its significant shareholders and based on overall evaluation Camilla Hed-Wilson is considered not to be independent from the company’s significant shareholders.
