According to the Swedish Companies Act, the general meeting is the ultimate decision-making body of the Company. At the General Meeting, shareholders exercise their voting rights on key issues such as the adoption of earnings and balance sheets, the appropriation of the Company’s earnings, the discharge from liability of the directors and the chief executive officer, the election of directors and auditors and remuneration to the board of directors and the auditors. An annual general meeting must be held within six months from the end of each 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 Nyheter that notice has been made.
