General meetings of shareholders are convened by the Management Board or by the Supervisory Board. The General Meeting of Shareholders is held once a year at the end of April. Matters that general meetings of shareholders discuss include the annual report, adoption of the financial statements, appropriation of profit, formal approval of the policy conducted by the Management Board and Supervisory Board and decisions concerning vacancies and other agenda items. The approval of shareholders is required for resolutions that fundamentally affect the identity or the character of the company. Subject to the company’s articles of incorporation, the Management Board and/or Supervisory Board may include on the agenda items put forward by shareholders. Please check the financial calendar when the next AGM will take place.
