The governing bodies of the parent company Outokumpu Oyj, i.e. the General Meeting of Shareholders, the Board of Directors, and the President and Chief Executive Officer (CEO), have the ultimate responsibility for the organization of the Group’s management and operations.
General meeting of shareholders
The General Meeting of Shareholders convenes at least once a year. Under the Finnish Companies Act, certain important decisions, such as the approval of financial statements, decisions on dividends and increases or reductions in share capital, amendments to the Articles of Association, and election of the Board of Directors and auditors, fall within the exclusive domain of the General Meeting of Shareholders.
According to its Articles of Association, Outokumpu has only one single class of shares and all shares have equal voting rights at General Meetings.
Outokumpu’s Annual General Meeting is planned to be held on Wednesday March 27, 2019. Outokumpu’s Board of Directors will decide on the summoning of the meeting and publish the Notice to the Annual General Meeting at a later date in a stock exchange release.
A REQUEST FOR ITEMS ON THE AGENDA OF THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
A shareholder has the right to request on the agenda of the Annual General Meeting an item that falls within the competence of the general meeting by virtue of the Finnish Companies Act, provided that the shareholder demands so in writing from the Board of Directors, well in advance of the meeting, so that the item can be added in the notice of the Annual General Meeting. Such requests must be submitted to Outokumpu Board of Directors on January 18, 2019 at the latest either by mail to AGM / Outokumpu Oyj, P.O.
