The board members are independent and appointed for a period of four years.

 

2) Depository Receipts (DRs). DRs embody the economic aspects of the shares of Fastned and are traded on the Euronext Exchange. FAST exercises the voting rights attached to the Fastned shares. The main tasks and purpose of FAST is (i) to make sure that Fastned is working towards its mission, (ii) to monitor the continuity of the Company, and (iii) to safeguard the interests of the holders of depository receipts (DR Holders). These three tasks – in that order – form the guiding principles of the board of FAST.

 

3) DR Holders. DR Holders have the right to attend the General Meetings and to speak at such meetings.
