”I want to express my warmest thanks to Elina and Catharina for their valuable contribution in executing Marimekko’s growth and internationalization over the past years. The value-based, timeless and sustainable Marimekko lifestyle brand is more relevant than ever which supports our growth objectives also in the future,” Chairman Mika Ihamuotila says.

The proposed Board members have informed the company that in the event that they are elected, they intend to elect Mika Ihamuotila as Chairman of the Board and Teemu Kangas-Kärki as Vice Chairman of the Board as well as Teemu Kangas-Kärki as Chairman and Mikko-Heikki Inkeroinen and Marianne Vikkula as members of the Audit and Remuneration Committee.

Proposal for the remuneration of the Board

In addition, a separate remuneration would be paid for committee work to persons elected to a committee as follows: EUR 2,000 per meeting to Chairman and EUR 1,000 per meeting to members. The fees for committee work are unchanged from 2021.

Furthermore, the above-mentioned shareholders propose that approximately 40% of the annual remuneration would be paid in Marimekko Corporation’s shares acquired from the market and the rest in cash. The shares would be acquired directly on behalf of the Board members within two weeks from the release of the interim report for 1 January–31 March 2022 or if this would not be possible due to the insider rules, as soon as possible thereafter. The annual remuneration would be paid entirely in cash, if a Board member on the date of the Annual General Meeting, 12 April 2022, holds the company’s shares worth more than EUR 1,000,000.

The above proposals will be included in the notice of the Annual General Meeting which will be published separately.
