  1. Decisions of the Extraordinary General Meeting

Election of members of the Board of Directors                                                                 

The general meeting elected Andreas Rosenlew and Anders Liljeblad as new ordinary members of the Board.
Authorising the Board of Directors to decide on share issues and on granting special rights entitling to shares 

The General Meeting authorised the Board to decide on a paid share issue and on granting option rights and other special rights entitling to shares as referred to in Chapter 10 Section 1 of the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act, or on the combination of all or some of the aforementioned instruments, in one or more tranches on the following terms and conditions:

The number of shares to be issued under the authorisation may not exceed 315,000,000, which corresponds to approximately 49.5 per cent of all company shares at the time of the Annual General Meeting.

Within the limits of the aforementioned authorisation, the Board of Directors was given the right to decide on all terms and conditions applied to the share issue and to the special rights entitling to shares, such as that the payment of the subscription price may take place not only in cash but also by setting off receivables that the subscriber has from the company.

The Board of Directors has the right to decide on crediting the subscription price either to the company’s share capital or, in full or in part, to the invested unrestricted equity fund.

Shares as well as special rights entitling to shares may also be issued in a way that deviates from the pre-emptive rights of shareholders if a weighty financial reason for the company to do this exists as laid out in the Limited Liability Companies Act. In such a case, the authorisation may be used to finance corporate acquisitions or other investments related to the operations of the company as well as to maintain and improve the solvency of the group of companies and to carry out an incentive scheme.

The authorisation will remain in effect until the annual general meeting held in 2019, yet no longer than until 30 June 2019. The new authorisation does not revoke the previous authorisations.
