The shareholders’ right of decision in Elekta affairs is exercised at shareholders’ meetings. The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held in Stockholm, Sweden in September. Notification of the AGM is published according to the rules of the Companies Act, not earlier than six and not later than four weeks in advance. All registered shareholders receive an invitation to the AGM.
To be able to participate in decisions, shareholders must be present at the AGM personally or via a representative. Shareholders may register to participate by mail, fax, telephone or e-mail. The language for the AGM is Swedish, and all documentation is available in Swedish and English. Matters addressed by the AGM include dividend, adoption of the annual report, nomination of members of the Board of Directors, as well as auditors if applicable, remuneration to the Board of Directors and auditors, as well as other important issues resulting from laws or the Articles of Association.
Series A shares entitle the holder to ten votes, while Series B shares carry one vote. Decisions are normally taken by simple majority, with the exception of those instances when Swedish law requires a qualified majority. All relevant documentation for the AGM is made available at the Company’s head office and on Elekta’s website, www.elekta.com, in Swedish and English.
At the 2012 Annual General Meeting of Elekta AB (publ), on September 4, 717 shareholders entitled to vote participated via representatives or personally, representing 57 percent of the votes in the company.
