Internal control and Audit
The purpose of internal control over financial reporting is to ensure that it is reliable and that the financial reports follow generally accepted accounting principles and otherwise follow applicable laws and regulations concerning listed companies. According to the Swedish Companies Act and the Code of Corporate Governance the Board is ultimately responsible for an effective, functioning internal control in the Group. Internal control is based on the framework for internal control published by COSO (Committee of Sponsoring Organizations of the Treadway Commission) and which comprises the control environment, risk assessment, control activities, information, communication as well as follow-up. The Chief Executive Officer is responsible for an organization and processes that ensure the quality of financial reports to the Board and the market.
The Annual General Meeting 2023 chose the accounting firm PricewaterhouseCoopers AB as the company’s auditor until the next Annual General Meeting. The Auditor in charge is the authorized public accountant Eric Salander and co-auditor is the authorized public accountant Daniel Körner Rask. Once a year, the auditors meet the Board in its entirety without the Chief Executive Officer or any other member of Group Management present, normally at the meeting that deals with the year-end report. The auditors also participate in the Board meeting dealing with the report for the first nine months of the year.
