Shareholders with nominee-registered holdings
Right to attend the AGM
A shareholder with nominee-registered holdings shall be entitled to attend the Annual General Meeting if he/she
a) is entitled to be included in the Company’s list of shareholders on the basis of the shares he/she holds on the record date set for the AGM, 1 April 2010, and
b) has been notified for inclusion in the temporary list of the Company’s shareholders by 10.00 EET on 12 April 2010 at the latest.
Changes that take place in shareholdings after the record date set for the AGM will not affect a shareholder’s right to attend the AGM or exercise his/her voting rights. Shareholders with nominee-registered holdings should contact their custodian bank in good time for the purpose of becoming included in the temporary list of shareholders.
Registration for the AGM
Shareholders with nominee-registered holdings are considered to have registered their wish to attend the meeting if they have been notified for inclusion in the Company’s temporary list of shareholders.
Use of a proxy and authorizations
A shareholder with nominee-registered holdings can provide his/her custodian bank with a proxy in accordance with guidelines provided by the latter.
If a shareholder wishes to authorize somebody else to act as his/her proxy rather than his/her custodian bank, the person selected as proxy should present the Company with a dated letter of proxy showing that he/she is authorized to represent the shareholder.
A shareholder can make use of a number of proxies to represent his/her holdings in different securities accounts, and can vote in different ways through separate holdings.
Shareholders with nominee-registered holdings are advised to request their custodian banks in good time for further instructions covering the above inclusion in the Company’s temporary list of shareholders, issuing letters of proxy, and registering for the AGM.
