The shareholder's right to decide on the company's affairs is exercised at the Annual General Meeting, which is Latour's highest decision-making body. The AGM is normally held in Gothenburg in May every year. When and where the AGM will take place is published at the latest in connection with the third quarterly report.
The AGM must be held within six months of the end of the financial year. The AGM may be held in Gothenburg or Stockholm. All shareholders recorded in the registered list of shareholders before the AGM who have announced their intention to attend have the right to participate and vote for their entire shareholdings.
Information about the shareholders' right to have matters dealt with at the meeting, and at what time such request must be available to the company to ensure it can be included in the notice, will also be informed by the third quarterly report. Notice of the AGM shall be published no earlier than six and no later than four weeks before the AGM. At the AGM, the company's development is discussed and decisions are taken in a number of key issues, such as dividend, changes to the Articles of Association, election of auditors, discharge from the Board of Directors, remuneration to the Board and auditors and decisions on new Board of Directors for the period up to and including the next Annual General Meeting.
The last AGM authorised the Board to decide on the acquisition of Latour shares on one or more occasions until the next Annual General Meeting. Both class A and class B shares may be acquired and the total number of shares may be such that, after acquisition, the company does not hold more than ten (10) per cent of all shares issued in the company.
