Annual General Meeting

The shareholders exercise their decision-making power concerning the company’s matters at the General Meetings of Shareholders. The Annual General Meeting of Shareholders shall be held annually within six months of the end of the financial year.

Pursuant to the Finnish Companies Act, the Swedish Corporate Governance Code 2016 and the company’s Articles of Association, the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders shall resolve on matters including, amongst other things, the following:

  • adoption of the financial statements and consolidated financial statements,
  • granting discharge from liability to the members of the Board of Directors and the CEO,
  • use of profit shown in the balance sheet,
  • number of members of the Board of Directors, remunerations paid to the members of the Board of Directors, and election of members of the Board of Directors and appointment of the Chairman, and
  • election of auditors and the remuneration paid to the auditor.

Furthermore, an authorisation for the Board of Directors to resolve on a share issue or issue of other special rights entitling to shares and amendments to the Articles of Association also require the resolution of a General Meeting of Shareholders.
In addition to Annual General Meetings of Shareholders, Extraordinary General Meetings of Shareholders may also be held if the Board deems it necessary, or if one is legally required. Subject to the nature of the matter to be resolved, the provisions of the Finnish Companies Act regarding qualified majority shall be applied.

A shareholder may request that his/her proposal be handled at the next General Meeting of Shareholders. Such a request shall be made in writing to Adapteo’s Board of Directors by the date specified by the company on its website.

According to the company’s Articles of Association, General Meetings shall be convened by publishing a notice to the meeting on the company’s website no earlier than three months and no later than three weeks prior to the date of the General Meeting, but in any case at the latest nine days prior to the record date of the General Meeting, as provided by the Finnish Companies Act.

The agenda for the meeting and the proposed decisions and other documents to be submitted to the General Meeting of Shareholders are made available on Adapteo’s website at least three weeks before the General Meeting of Shareholders.
