The Nomination Board consists of three (3) members having been nominated by Teleste’s three largest shareholders, calculated on the basis of the votes conferred by all the shares in Teleste on August 30 preceding the next Annual General Meeting. The Nomination Board’s term of office shall continue until a new Nomination Board is elected.
