Håkan Erixon, Chair of the Board of Directors of Hemnet Group AB (publ) since 2017, has today informed the Board of his decision to resign as board member and chairman of Hemnet. Håkan Erixon will leave his position on August 31. The Board of Directors has decided that Chris Caulkin will then take over as Chair of the Board until further notice.

Håkan Erixon, Chair of the Board
"I am proud of Hemnet's success in recent years with the IPO as the crowning achievement. Hemnet is a fantastic company, but the principal owners and I have slightly different views on how the Board's work should be conducted going forward. I therefore believe it is right to step down with a short transition period to allow the company to move forward. It has been a great honour for me to lead the work of the Board and to work with management and all employees, and I wish Hemnet all the best for the future.”

Chris Caulkin, Managing Director of General Atlantic and member of the Board:
“Håkan joined Hemnet as Chair of the Board when we acquired the company five years ago and has been a key partner to the shareholders and management in building Hemnet into what it is today. I would like to thank him for his dedication and leadership during this important period and in supporting Hemnet's successful transition to a listed company. The nomination committee will now begin its search for a successor who will chair the company through its next phase of development and in the meantime I look forward to leading the work of the Board."

This is information that Hemnet Group AB (publ) is obliged to make public pursuant to the EU Market Abuse Regulation. The information was submitted for publication, through the agency of the person set out below, at 17.20 CET on August 10 2022.
