Annual General Meeting
Pursuant to the Swedish Companies Act (2005:551), the Annual General Meeting (AGM) is the Company’s supreme decision-making body and shareholders exercise their voting rights at such meetings. AGMs must be held within six months from the end of each financial year. In addition to the AGM, extraordinary general meetings may be convened. The Company’s AGMs are held in Stockholm, Sweden, every calendar year before the end of June.
Pursuant to the articles of association, notices convening AGMs shall be issued through announcement in the Swedish Official Gazette (Sw. Post- och Inrikes Tidningar) as well as on the Company’s website. Announcement to the effect that a notice convening a AGM has been issued shall be made in Dagens Industri.
All shareholders who are directly recorded in the share register maintained by Euroclear Sweden five weekdays (Saturdays included) prior to the general meeting and who have notified the Company of their intention to participate in the general meeting not later than the date indicated in the notice of the general meeting, are entitled to attend the general meeting and vote for the number of shares they hold.
Shareholders may attend general meetings in person or by proxy and may be accompanied by a maximum of two assistants. It will normally be possible for shareholders to register for the general meeting in several different ways, as indicated in the notice of the meeting.
Shareholders who wish to have an issue brought before the general meeting must submit a request in writing to the board of directors. The request must normally be received by the board of directors not later than seven weeks prior to the general meeting.
