Börje Ekholm new CEO of Investor as of September 1, 2005

Monday, 11. April 2005 11:06

Investor AB's Board of Directors has today appointed Börje Ekholm as
new President and Chief Executive Officer effective September 1,
2005. He succeeds Marcus Wallenberg, who is also leaving Investor's
board as of September 1.

Börje Ekholm, 42, has been employed by Investor since 1992. He has
been Executive Vice President and Head of the New Investments
business area since 2000 and is currently a director on the boards of
several of Investor's holdings, including WM-data in Sweden and
Tessera Technologies, Inc. in the U.S.

"After six intensive years as President and CEO - and against the
background of my proposed chairmanship of SEB - it is a natural step
for me to hand over Investor to a new CEO. Investor has developed
strongly over the past two years and has a solid financial position
today," comments Marcus Wallenberg.

"I am excited about taking over the leadership of Investor and I feel
confident about taking the company forward. Investor is well
positioned to successfully develop companies and generate long-term
attractive returns for shareholders," says Börje Ekholm.
