These include approving the financial statements, deciding on the distribution of dividends, discharging the Company’s Board of Directors and CEO from the liability for the financial year, appointing the Company’s Board of Directors and auditors and deciding on their remuneration.
A General Meeting of Finnlines Plc is held at least once a year. The Annual General Meeting (AGM) must be held no later than the end of June. An invitation to attend the AGM and the agenda are published in a national newspaper chosen by the Board or on the web site of the Company, no earlier than three months before the Shareholders’ Meeting and no later than 21 days before the Shareholders’ Meeting. Shareholders have, according to the law, the right to put items falling within the competence of the General Meeting on the agenda of the General Meeting, if the shareholder so notifies the Board of Directors in writing well in advance of the General Meeting so that the item can be added to the notice of the General Meeting. The demand is deemed to have arrived in sufficient time, if the Board has been notified of the demand four weeks before the delivery of the notice of the General Meeting at the latest
