Participation in the Annual General Meeting requires that the shareholder is registered in Metso’s shareholder register on the record date of the meeting, which is eight business days before the meeting, and that he/she registers for the meeting by the date mentioned in the meeting notice. The holder of a nominee-registered share may be entered temporarily in the shareholder register for participation in the Annual General Meeting, if the shareholder based on his/her holding has the right to be registered in the shareholder register on the record date. In addition, participation requires advance notice of participation at the latest by the date mentioned in the meeting notice.
Shareholders are entitled to have an issue put on the Annual General Meeting’s agenda, provided that the issue requires a decision by the Annual General Meeting according to the Finnish Companies Act. The request must be submitted in writing to the Board early enough so that the issue can be included in the meeting notice. On our website we will announce the date by which the shareholder must notify the Board of an issue to be added to the Annual General Meeting agenda. Regarding the Annual General Meeting of 2013, shareholders were entitled to submit the request addressed to the Board at the latest by January 25, 2013. The request is always deemed submitted early enough if the Board has been notified about it at least four weeks prior to the delivery of the meeting notice.
