Authorising the Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase of own shares

The Annual General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to resolve on the repurchase of a maximum of 150,000 own shares in the company in one or several tranches using the company’s unrestricted shareholders’ equity. The shares will be repurchased otherwise than in proportion to the shareholdings of the shareholders in public trading arranged by Nasdaq Helsinki Ltd for the market price at the moment of purchase.

The authorisation remains valid until the closing of the next Annual General Meeting, but no longer than until 30 June 2022. The authorisation replaces the previous authorisation to repurchase own shares granted by the Annual General Meeting on 25 February 2020.

Authorising the Board of Directors to resolve on share issues and issues of option rights and other special rights entitling to shares

The Annual General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to resolve on the issuance of shares and the issuance of special rights entitling to shares as referred to in Chapter 10 Section 1 of the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act in one or several tranches, either against payment or without payment.

The aggregate amount of shares to be issued, including the shares to be received based on special rights, must not exceed 2,100,000 shares. The Board of the Directors may resolve to issue new shares or to transfer own shares possibly held by the company. The maximum amount of the authorisation corresponds to approximately 4.8 per cent of all shares in the company.

The Board of Directors is authorised to decide on all other matters related to the issuance of shares and special rights entitling to shares, including the right to deviate from the pre-emptive right of shareholders to subscribe for shares to be issued. The authorisation is used for the purposes of paying purchase prices of corporate acquisitions, share issues directed to personnel or share award schemes or to issue share options or for other purposes decided by the Board of Directors.

The authorisation remains valid until the closing of the next Annual General Meeting, but no longer than until 30 June 2022. The authorisation revokes all previous unused authorisations to resolve on the issuance of shares, option rights and other special rights entitling to shares.
