Extraordinary General Meeting

This autumn’s Extraordinary General Meeting, which took place on August 24th, addressed, for the second time, changes to Hereditas Articles of Association. The board’s proposal was approved by the required majority vote.

Furthermore, the meeting approved the registration of the company’s shares within the book-entry system. The board was authorized to decide about the time frame for associating with the book-entry system.

Following the Extraordinary General Meeting, the company board has, as of August 24th, 2016, decided that the registration time frame of the shares within the book-entry system is between November 21st and November 30th, 2016. Technically, the registration will take place on December 1st, 2016.

By August 25th, 2016, the issuing agent has mailed a letter to all shareholders, with thorough instructions as to how register company shares within the book-entry system. Each shareholder shall act in accordance with these instructions.

It is desired that shareholders shall transfer no shares before and during the registration period, which ends on November 30th, 2016. If such an event takes place, it is of utmost importance that Hereditas company headquarters is informed immediately.

The removal of sections 15 (redemption) and 16 (consent) from the Articles of Association will be re-registered only after the registration of shares within the book-entry system. Prior to this, the board shall not consent to any transfer of shares which would take place under the procedures of redemption.

The shares can be traded immediately upon their registration within the book-entry system, i.e. from December 1st, 2016.
