- on discharge from liability of the board of directors and the CEO,
- election of members of the board of directors and auditors and their respective remuneration.
An extraordinary general meeting of shareholders shall be held when deemed necessary by the Board of Directors, or when requested in writing by the auditor or by shareholders representing at least one-tenth of all issued and outstanding shares for purposes of dealing with a specific matter.
