The auditor of the company is elected by the annual general meeting for the period up to the end of the next annual general meeting. The auditor examines the annual report and the bookkeeping of the company, and the governance performed by the Board of Directors and the CEO. The auditor gives an auditor’s report to the general meeting for each accounting year. The auditor also reports once a year to the board of directors all findings from the performed audit and the assessment of the internal controls of the company. At the general meeting on the 6th of May 2021, KPMG AB was re-elected, which appointed Johan Kratz as auditor in charge up until next general meeting.
At the annual general meeting it was also resolved that the fees to the auditor should be paid in accordance with normal charging standards and approved invoice. The total fee paid to the auditor of the company for the financial year 2021 amounted to SEK 840 thousand, of which the full amount was related to the audit assignment.
The overall purpose of the internal control is to ensure that the strategies and objectives of the company can be implemented within the business and to ensure that the financial reporting has been prepared in accordance with applicable laws, accounting standards and other requirements imposed on listed companies. The board of director’s responsibility for the internal control is governed by the Swedish Companies Act, the Swedish Annual Reports Act and the Code. In the rules of procedure for the board of directors, the instruction for the CEO and the instruction for financial reporting, all of which have been adopted by the board of directors, the allocation of the roles and responsibilities have been stated in order to contribute to an effective management of the Company’s risks.
The board of directors also has the task to monitor the Company’s financial position, to monitor the effectiveness of the Company’s internal control and risk management, to be informed about the audit of the annual report and consolidated financial statements, and to review and monitor the auditor’s impartiality and independence. In addition to the above-mentioned controls, the Company also continuously carries out quality controls of its suppliers and its partners in order to ensure that they meet the requirements set out by the Company. Continuous risk assessments are carried out in connection with strategic planning, forecasting work and specific risk sessions in order to identify, quantify and relate to how identified risks can be managed and, if possible, be limited. The presentation of the identified risks shall, as a minimum, be submitted to the board of directors once per year.
In the beginning of 2021, the company was rewarded ISO 9001 certification. The company has developed and implemented a quality management system in order to improve its overall performance, maintain a high level of quality and strong customer service and offer a solid foundation for initiatives in sustainable development
