All Directors are independent of the company*. Furthermore, Arnold de Haan, Bernd Knobloch, Alexandre (Sandy) Koifman, David Lukes, Per-Anders Ovin and Ariella Zochovitzky are independent of significant shareholders. Chaim Katzman and Ofer Stark are not regarded as being independent of significant shareholders due to their employ or service of Citycon’s main shareholder, Gazit-Globe Ltd. or its affiliated companies. Since Andrea Orlandi is in the employ of Canada Pension Plan Investment Board, which wholly owns CPP Investment Board European Holdings S.àr.l, a significant shareholder in Citycon, he is not regarded as being independent of significant shareholders.

*Ofer Stark is not independent of the company for the fixed 6 months period from February to August 2019 due to the Consultancy Agreement between Starkitect and the company.
