The ordinary general meeting (the annual general meeting) is held once a year in order to carry out tasks such as adopting the group’s annual report and accounts, discharging the members of the board of directors and the CEO from liability and deciding how the profit for the past financial year is to be allocated.
Extraordinary general meetings can be held where there is a particular need to do so.
