Shareholders’ right to receive information

The Board of Directors and the President and CEO shall, if any shareholder so requests and the Board of Directors believes that it can be done without material harm to the Company, provide information regarding circumstances that may affect the assessment of an item on the agenda and circumstances that can affect the assessment of the Company’s or its subsidiaries’ financial situation and the Company’s relation to other companies within the Group.

Majority requirements

Most resolutions at General Meetings of shareholders are passed by a simple majority, i.e. more than half of the votes cast at the General Meeting. However, the Swedish Companies Act requires qualified majorities in certain cases. For example, resolutions on transfer of treasury stock to employees participating in long-term variable compensation programs must be approved by 90 percent of the votes cast and by 90 percent of the shares represented at the Meeting, and a resolution to amend the Articles of Association must be approved by a two thirds majority.
