Amendment to the Articles of Association
The Annual General Meeting amended the company’s Articles of Association to comply with the Corporate Governance Code so that the notice of a General Meeting shall be delivered a minimum of 21 days before the date of the General meeting instead of 17 days as stated in the previous Articles of Association. After the amendment, the Article 9 Notice of a General Meeting of shareholders reads as follows: “The notice of a General Meeting of shareholders shall be published in a newspaper with national distribution specified by the Board or on the company’s website. The notice must be delivered a maximum of two (2) months and a minimum of twenty-one (21) days before the date of the General Meeting of shareholders.”
A directed share issue
The Annual General Meeting decided in accordance with the proposal of the Board of Directors that the company’s share capital will be increased by issuing a maximum of 2,000,000 new shares, waiving the shareholders’ pre-emptive rights, by offering subscription right to the Board of Directors, the President and CEO and the members of the management team as well as to those of existing shareholders, who hold at least 100,000 shares on 13 April 2010 when the subscription period begins.
The Board of Directors, the President and CEO and the members of the management team are altogether entitled to subscribe for 300,000 new shares. They shall use their subscription right by 20 April 2010 at the latest, after which the unsubscribed shares can be subscribed by others.
The subscription price in the share issue is EUR 0.64, which is the volume-weighted average trading price of the company’s share at the Helsinki Exchanges in March 2010.
Authorising the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of shares as well as the issuance of other special rights entitling to shares
The Annual General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to decide, within one year of the Annual General Meeting and by the next Annual General Meeting at the latest, on increasing the share capital through one or more rights issues so that the total number of new shares to be subscribed for on the basis of the authorisation is a maximum of 1,500,000 shares.
The authorisation includes the right to deviate from shareholders’ pre-emptive subscription rights and to decide on subscription prices and other terms and conditions of subscription. Shareholders’ pre-emptive rights can be deviated providing that, from the company’s standpoint, there is a weighty economic reason for doing so, such as the development of the company’s business operations, the financing of M&A arrangements, an arrangement related to capital funding or personnel policy reasons. The Board of Directors shall have the right to decide that shares can be subscribed for through a contribution in kind, by way of offsetting rights or otherwise subject to certain conditions.
First meeting of the new Board
The new Board of Directors held a meeting after the Annual General Meeting and elected Kalevi Laurila as the Chairman of the Board and Susanna Miekk-oja as the Vice-Chairman of the Board.
