Annual General Meeting
The company’s highest decision-making body is the Annual General Meeting. An extraordinary general meeting is arranged when necessary. This is called by the Board of Directors. Shareholders are invited to the Annual General Meeting through a meeting invitation published on the company’s Web site. The invitation provides the shareholders with the necessary information about the issues to be addressed at the meeting. The meeting notice is also published as a stock exchange release and to any other way decided by the Board of Directors.
The Annual General Meeting must be held no more than six months after the end of the company’s fiscal year. The AGM makes decisions on the issues falling under its mandate as determined by the Companies Act, including the verification of the financial statements, the payment of dividends, the discharge from liability of the Board members and the CEO, and the selection and fees of the Board members and the auditors. The Annual General Meeting is attended by the CEO and a majority of the Board members. A person running for a position on the Board for the first time attends the AGM that decides on the selection.
