General shareholder meeting
Pursuant to the Swedish Companies Act, the general shareholder meeting is the Company’s highest decision-making body. At the general meeting, the shareholders exercise their voting rights on key issues, such as the adoption of income statements and balance sheets, appropriation of the Company’s profit, discharge from liability of board members and the CEO, election of board members and auditors and remuneration of the board and auditors.
In addition to the annual general meeting (AGM), extraordinary general shareholder meetings may be convened. In accordance with Embracer Group’s articles of association, convening notices for the annual general meeting and extraordinary general shareholder meetings are made by announcement in the Post- och Inrikes Tidningar (the Swedish Official Gazette) and by making the convening notice available on the Embracer Group website. An announcement that notice has been given is published in Svenska Dagbladet.
