The auditing firm has announced that the auditor in charge of the audit is Authorised Public Accountant Lotta Nurminen. In accordance with the proposal of the Board of Directors, the General Meeting decided that the remuneration of the auditor is paid based on the reasonable invoice approved by the Company.

 

Authorisation to the Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase as well as on the acceptance as pledge of the company’s own shares

In accordance with the proposal of the Board of Directors, the General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase as well as on the acceptance as pledge of the Company's own shares in one or several tranches as follows.

The number of own shares to be repurchased or accepted as pledge shall not exceed 8,000,000 shares, which corresponds to approximately 10 per cent of all registered shares in the Company, subject to the provisions of the Finnish Companies’ Act on the maximum amount of shares owned by or pledged to the company or its subsidiaries. Only the unrestricted equity of the Company can be used to repurchase own shares on the basis of the authorisation.

Own shares can be repurchased at a price formed in public trading on the date of the repurchase or at a price otherwise formed on the market.

The Board of Directors decides how own shares will be repurchased or accepted as pledge. Own shares can be repurchased otherwise than in proportion to the shareholdings of the shareholders (directed repurchase).

The authorisation is effective until 30 June 2021 and it revokes corresponding earlier authorisations.

 

Authorisation to the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of shares as well as the issuance of options and other rights entitling to shares

In accordance with the proposal of the Board of Directors, the General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to resolve on one or more issuances of shares which contain the right to issue new shares or dispose of the shares in the possession of the Company and to issue options or other rights entitling to shares pursuant to Chapter 10 of the Finnish Companies Act. The authorisation consists of up to 8,000,000 shares in the aggregate representing approximately 10 per cent of the current number of shares in the Company.

The authorisation does not exclude the Board of Directors' right to decide on a directed issue of shares. The authorisation can be used for material arrangements from the Company's point of view, such as financing or implementing business arrangements or investments or for other such purposes determined by the Board of Directors in which case a weighty financial reason for issuing shares, options or other rights and possibly directing a share issue would exist.

The Board of Directors was authorised to resolve on all terms and conditions of the issuance of shares, options and other rights entitling to shares as referred to in Chapter 10 of the Companies Act, including the payment period, grounds for the determination of the subscription price and subscription price or allocation of shares, option or other rights free of charge or that the subscription price may be paid besides in cash also by other assets either partially or entirely (contribution in kind).

The authorisation is effective until 30 June 2021 and it revokes corresponding earlier authorisations.
