The company KIRIACOULIS MEDITERRANEAN CRUISES SHIPPING SA informs the investors that at the meeting of the Board of Directors of the company of 16-07-2021, it was announced that the independent non-executive member of the BoD Mr. Angelos Kopitsas of Athanasios submitted his written resignation dated 05.07.2021 as member of the Board of Directors of the company and the BoD decided to continue the management and representation of the company without replacing him, by virtue of article 11 par. 5 of the Articles of Association.
At the above meeting, it was also established that the independent member Nikitas Sotiropoulos no longer meets the requirements necessary by law for independence, given that he has been a member of the BoD of the company for more than nine years. The BoD also established that the independent members Kalliopi Magoula and Zoi Vasiliou do not have any relation to the company and meet the requirements of independence of article 9 paragraphs 1, 2 of Law 4706 / 2020 and therefore can remain independent non-executive members of the BoD. Even though the existing two independent non-executive members of the Board are not sufficient for the fulfillment of the number of four independent non-executive members as set by the OGM of 19.07.2019, this number (2) is sufficient for the fulfillment of the minimum legal number according to article 5§2 of Law 4706/2020. In this case, the Board of Directors consists of six members, 1/3 of which is equal to the number two, which is the minimum number of independent members of the BoD required. It is noted that, given that the independent non-executive members of the Board are less than the number set by the OGM dated 19.07.2019, at the next General Meeting of shareholders, the number of independent non-executive members of the Board of Directors will be reconsidered.
Following the above, the BoD was reconstituted into a body as follows:
- Spyridon Kiriacoulis of Stavros, executive member, Chairman of the BoD,
- Theofanis Kiriacoulis of Stavros, executive member, Managing Director and Alternate to the Chairman as regards his executive duties,
- Nikitas Sotiropoulos of Konstantinos, non-executive member, Vice Chairman of the BoD,
- Chariklia Theodorou of Dimitrios, non-executive member of the BoD,
- Kalliopi Magoula of Stefanos, independent non-executive member of the BoD and
- Zoi Vasiliou of Dimitrios, independent non-executive member of the BoD.
