Nokia shareholders play a key role in corporate governance, with our Annual General Meeting (AGM) offering a regular opportunity to exercise their decision-making power in the company.
Each year around one hundred thousand shareholders are present at our AGM in Helsinki, Finland, either in person or through a proxy representative. The shareholders take resolutions on the use of profits, the remuneration of the Board of Directors, elect the members of the Board of Directors and the auditor. The AGM also reviews the financial statements and the auditors’ report for the past year. In addition, the AGM addresses matters such as authorizations to issue new shares or repurchase own shares.
