On September 6, Valmet announced the composition of Valmet's Nomination Board. Valmet's four largest registered shareholders according to Euroclear on September 1, 2016, have nominated the following persons as their representatives to Valmet's Nomination Board:

  • Kari Järvinen, Managing Director, Solidium Oy

On September 1, Valmet announced that the Swedish Supreme Administrative Court has in a decision of August 30, 2016, refused leave to appeal. The decision to revoke Andritz' patent is thus upheld and the Swedish patent SE 531498 is permanently invalidated. This entails legally that the patent is deemed to never have existed, and as a consequence Andritz' claims for damages in the infringement case in Stockholm District Court are unfounded on all grounds.
