All shareholders are given the opportunity to exercise their respective influence over the company on the shareholders’ meeting.
According to the Swedish Companies Act the shareholders’ meeting is the company’s highest decision-making body. At shareholders’ meetings, the shareholders exercise their voting rights in key issues, such as the adoption of income statements and balance sheets, appropriations of the company’s earnings, discharge from liability of the 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 auditors.
The annual shareholders’ meeting must be held within six months from the end of the financial year. Ambea’s annual shareholders’ meeting, which is to be held in Stockholm, must therefore be held each year before the end of June. In addition to the annual shareholders’ meeting, extraordinary shareholders’ meetings may be convened. According to the articles of association, shareholders’ meetings are convened by publication of the convening notice in the Swedish National Gazette (Sw. Post- och Inrikes Tidningar) and on the company’s website. At the time of the notice convening the meeting, an announcement of the notice is to be published in Svenska Dagbladet.
Shareholders who wish to participate in a shareholders’ meeting must be included in the shareholder’s register maintained by Euroclear Sweden on the day falling five work days prior to the meeting, and notify the Company of their participation no later on the date stipulated in the notice convening the meeting.
