The decision-making rights of shareholders in Husqvarna are exercised at general meetings of shareholders.
Participation in decision-making requires the shareholder’s presence at the meeting, either in person or through a proxy. In addition, the shareholder must be registered in the share register as of the record date, i.e. five days prior to the meeting, and must provide notice of participation in accordance with the notice of the meeting.
Decisions at the meeting are normally made by simple majority. However, for some issues the Swedish Companies Act stipulates that a proposal must be approved by a higher proportion of the shares and votes represented at the meeting. Shareholders who wish to add an item to the agenda of a shareholders' meeting may send a request to the Board by e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
According to the Swedish Companies Act, the Annual General Meeting ("AGM"), must be held within six months after the end of the accounting year. The AGM decides on such issues as adoption of the annual accounts, dividends, election of Directors of the Board and of auditors when required, fees to the Directors of the Board and auditors, principles for remuneration to management, and other important matters.
An Extraordinary General Meeting may be convened at the discretion of the Board of Directors or if requested by the auditors or by shareholders owning at least 10% of the shares.
Shareholders may communicate in writing with the Board regarding matters that pertain to the general meeting by sending an e-mail to email@example.com.
