The registered accounting firm KPMG AB was re-elected (at the Annual General Meeting 2020) as Nelly Group's auditor for the period until the close of the Annual General Meeting 2021. KPMG has been the company’s external auditor since 1997. Mårten Asplund, certified public accountant, is responsible for the audit of the company on behalf of KPMG.
The auditors report their findings to the shareholders by means of the auditors’ report, which is presented to the AGM. In addition, the auditors report detailed findings to the Audit Committee twice a year and to the full Board once a year, and annually provide written assurance of their impartiality and independence to the Audit Committee.
KPMG also provided certain additional services in 2017 and 2018. These services comprised consultation on accounting and other audit-related assignments.
The audit assignment involves examination of the annual report and financial accounting, administration by the Board and CEO, other tasks related to the duties of a company auditor, and consultation or other services which may result from observations noted during such examination or implementation of such other tasks.
