The Extraordinary General Meeting of Suominen Corporation held today authorised the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of a maximum of 30,000,000 new shares in one or more share issues against payment. The authorisation grants the Board of Directors the right to decide on a directed issue in deviation from the shareholders' pre-emptive right.
The authorisation can be used for improving the company's capital structure, financing business arrangements and expansion investments or for other purposes determined by the Board of Directors. The authorisation can not be used for creating share-based incentive programs.
The Board of Directors was authorised to resolve on all other terms and conditions of a share issue.
The authorisation will be effective until 31 December 2010 and it does not supersede earlier authorisations.
