The shareholders’ influence in the Company is exercised at general meetings, which, in accordance with the Swedish Companies Act is the Company’s highest decision-making body. As the Company’s highest decision-making body, the general meeting may resolve upon every issue for the Company, not specifically reserved for another corporate body’s exclusive competence. Thus, the general meeting has a sovereign role over the board of directors and the managing director.
At ordinary (annual) general meetings, resolutions must be passed on adoption of the profit and loss account and balance sheet, allocation of the Company’s profit or loss, discharge from liability for the board of directors and the managing director, elections of members of the board of directors and auditor and on remuneration for the board of directors and the auditor. At general meetings, the shareholders also resolve on other key matters in the Company, such as amending of the articles of association, any new issue of shares etc. The General Meeting form is mainly governed by the Articles of Association.
