General meetings of shareholders
According to the Swedish Companies Act, the general meeting is the ultimate decision-making body of the company. At the general meeting, the shareholders exercise their voting rights on key issues, such as the adoption of income statements and statements of financial position, appropriation of the company’s results, discharge from liability of members of the board of directors and the CEO, election of members of the board of directors and auditors and remuneration to the board of directors and the auditors.
The annual general meeting must be held within six months from the end of the financial year. In addition to the annual general meeting, extraordinary general meetings may be convened. According to the articles of association, general meetings are convened by publication of the notice convening the meeting in the Official Swedish Gazette (Sw. Post- och Inrikes Tidningar) and on the company’s website. The company shall also advertise in Dagens Industri that notice has been made.
