Use of a proxy and authorizations

A shareholder is entitled to participate and make use of his or her rights as a shareholder at the AGM by proxy. A person holding a shareholder's proxy should be in possession of a dated proxy document or otherwise be able to show in a reliable manner that he or she is entitled to act in this capacity on behalf of a shareholder. In the event that a shareholder is represented by more than one proxy representative representing shares held in different securities accounts, each proxy representative should state which shares he or she represents when registering to attend the AGM.

A template for a proxy document with voting instructions is available here.

A shareholder, who will not vote in advance himself/herself, may without any cost for the shareholder use the Company’s proxy authorization service and authorize Veli Siitonen, Attorney-at-Law at Merilampi Attorneys Ltd., or another of the Company independent Attorney-at-Law appointed by him to act as a proxy representative and exercise the shareholder’s voting rights at the AGM in accordance with the voting instructions given by the shareholder. A signed proxy document including an advance voting form must be delivered to Veli Siitonen, Attorney-at-Law, by regular mail or e-mail (contact details below) before the end of the registration and advance voting period, by which time the documents must be received.
