Every shareholder has the right to participate in a general meeting. One share confers one vote in the general meeting, and resolutions are usually made by a simple majority of votes.
Participation in a general meeting requires that the shareholder is registered in the shareholder register on the general meeting's record date, which is eight working days before the general meeting, and that the shareholder registers for the meeting no later than on the day mentioned in the notice of meeting.
Shareholders have the right to have matters falling within the competence of the general meeting by virtue of the Companies Act included in the general meeting agenda, provided they demand, in writing, the Board of Directors to do so early enough that the item can be included in the notice of meeting. The date by which shareholders must present their requests will be published well in advance on the company's website.
The notice of meeting is published no later than three weeks before the meeting at the company’s website. The notice contains the agenda, the names of the persons nominated to seats on the Board of Directors and the nominated auditor. The resolution proposals and documents presented to the Annual General Meeting and presentation of the nominees for the Board of Directors will also be published on YIT’s website. The minutes of the general meeting with voting results and annexes are available no later than two weeks after the general meeting on YIT's Internet site.
