The General Meeting
The General Meeting of shareholders is Sponda’s highest decision-making body. The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held once a year on a date determined by the Board of Directors and within six (6) months of the end of the previous financial year. The AGM considers the matters stipulated in the Finnish Companies Act and Sponda’s articles of association. These include among others confirmation of the financial statements, deciding on the use of the profit shown in the balance sheet, electing the members of the Board of Directors and deciding on their remuneration, and appointing the company’s auditors and deciding on their remuneration.
Sponda publishes the notice of the AGM in at least one daily national newspaper determined by the Board of Directors and also on the company website. Shareholders entitled to attend the AGM are required to be registered in the company’s shareholder register and to inform the company of their intention to attend the meeting in the manner stipulated in the meeting notification. Extraordinary general meetings are convened when deemed necessary by the Board of Directors or when required by law.
