General meetings in Capio
Pursuant to the Swedish Companies Act, (Sw. aktiebolagslagen (2005:551)) (the “Swedish Companies Act”), the general meeting is the Capio's supreme decision-making body and shareholders exercise their voting rights at such meetings. In addition to the annual general meeting, extraordinary general meetings can be convened. Capio’s annual general meeting is held in Gothenburg, Sweden, every calendar year before the end of June. Extraordinary general meetings are held as required.
Pursuant to Capio's Articles of Association, notices convening general meetings must be issued through announcement in the Swedish National Gazette (Sw. Post- och Inrikes Tidningar) as well as on Capio’s website. An announcement to the effect that a notice convening a general meeting has been issued must be made in Svenska Dagbladet. Once the Shares are listed, a press release in Swedish and English with the notice in its entirety will be issued ahead of each general meeting.
Right to attend General Meetings
All shareholders who are directly recorded in the share register maintained by Euroclear Sweden five weekdays (Saturdays included) prior to the general meeting and who have notified Capio of their intention to participate in the general meeting not later than the date indicated in the notice of the general meeting, are entitled to attend the general meeting and vote for the number of Shares they hold.
In addition to notifying Capio, shareholders whose Shares are nominee registered through a bank or other nominee must request that their Shares be temporarily registered in their own names in the register of shareholders maintained by Euroclear Sweden in order to be entitled to participate in the general meeting. Shareholders should inform their nominees well in advance of the record date.
Shareholders may attend general meetings in person or by proxy and may be accompanied by a maximum of two assistants. It will normally be possible for shareholders to notify Capio of their attendance at the general meeting in several different ways, as indicated in the notice of the meeting.
