Qt Group’s highest decision-making body is the shareholders’ meeting at which shareholders exercise their voting rights regarding company matters. Each company share entitles the holder to one vote at the shareholders’ meeting.
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) should convene annually within three months of the date on which the financial year ends. An Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM) must be held if the Board of Directors deems it necessary or if requested in writing by a company auditor or shareholders holding a minimum of 10 per cent of the company’s shares, for the purpose of discussing a specific issue.
The Finnish Companies Act and Qt Group’s Articles of Association define the responsibilities and duties of the shareholders’ meeting. For corporate governance purposes, the AGM’s two major roles include the election of Board members and auditors. EGMs decide on the matters for which they have been specifically convened.
