Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting is the highest decision-making body of a public limited company. The Meeting appoints the Board of Directors and auditors, and also decides on matters such as amendments to the Articles of Association and changes in share capital.

Under the Companies Act, Swedish public limited companies must hold a general meeting at which the Board submits the annual report and the audit report within six months of the end of each year. This shareholder meeting is called the Annual General Meeting (AGM).

Genovis’ 2021 Annual General Meeting is held on Thursday, May 20.

Information on the resolutions passed at the Annual General Meeting will be disclosed on May 20, 2021, as soon as the outcome of the postal voting has been finally confirmed.

Voting rights

At the AGM, each share represents one vote

The AGM usually passes motions by simple majority, in compliance with the Swedish Companies Act. In some cases, however, the Companies Act or the Articles of Association stipulates either a certain level of attendance to achieve a quorum or a qualified majority of votes.

A shareholder may exercise all votes equal to the shareholder's shareholding and duly represented at the AGM.
