Group governance

Byggmax Group AB (publ) is a Swedish public limited liability company. Corporate governance refers to the rules and regulations as well as the existing structure established for managing and leading business activities in a limited company with an efficient and controlled approach. Ultimately, corporate governance aims to meet shareholder requirements in respect of return and to provide all stakeholders with adequate and correct information about the company and its development.

Corporate governance in listed Swedish companies is regulated by a combination of written rules and established practice. The regulatory framework comprises the Swedish Companies Act, the Stockholm Stock Exchange’s rules and the Code (the applicable Swedish corporate governance code). Byggmax applies the Swedish Corporate Governance Code. Companies covered by the Code are required to clearly disclose any deviation from the Code, including the underlying reasons. Any deviations from the Code by Byggmax and their motivations are detailed on an ongoing basis in the corporate governance report. Information about the Swedish Corporate Governance Code is available from the website of the Swedish Corporate Governance Board:
