The Board of Directors of Royal Unibrew has so far jointly undertaken the audit committee tasks. This should be viewed in light of the Company's size until now, transparency of reporting and clear procedures. Consequently, the Company's Board of Directors has not previously found any need for a separate audit committee. The Board of Directors has decided that, going forward, it will not jointly undertake the audit committee tasks; in consequence, a separate audit committee will be established following the AGM in April 2018. Hence Royal Unibrew will going forward comply with recommendation 3.4 from the Committee on Corporate Governance. It is the Board of Directors' objective to secure quality and integrity in the Company's presentation of Financial Statements, audit and financial reporting. At the same time, the Board of Directors monitors accounting and reporting processes, the audit of the Company's financial reporting, risk issues and the external auditor's performance and independence. Moreover, due to new legislation requiring a mandatory change of external auditor, the Board of Directors has prepared a recommendation for appointment of a new external auditor for the AGM in 2018. The external auditor has participated in three meetings of the Board of Directors in connection with the Board of Directors' performance of audit committee tasks.
