At the end of the review period, the company held a total of 94,700 own shares acquired during previous years. These own shares represent 1.5 per cent of the company’s total number of shares and votes. The company’s own shares carry no voting or dividend rights.
AUTHORISATIONS GRANTED TO THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS
On 27 March 2018, the Annual General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to decide on share issues. The authorisation includes the right to issue new shares or transfer Apetit Plc shares held by the company. The authorisation covers a maximum total of 626,757 shares, consisting of up to 520,331 new shares and 94,700 Apetit Plc shares held by the company.
The subscription price for each new share will be at least the share’s nominal value (EUR 2). The transfer price for Apetit shares held by the company will be at least the market value of the share at the time of transfer, which is determined by the price quoted in public trading on the Nasdaq Helsinki. The Board of Directors will also have the right to issue shares against considerations other than cash. In the implementation of share-based incentive or reward schemes, shares can also be issued without consideration.
The authorisation includes the right to deviate from the shareholders’ pre-emptive subscription right (targeted issue) if the company has an important financial reason for doing so, such as the development of the company’s capital structure, the financing and implementation of corporate acquisitions or other arrangements, or the implementation of a share-based incentive or reward scheme.
The authorisation is valid until the 2021 Annual General Meeting.

In accordance with a decision made by the Supervisory Board regarding the remuneration of Board members, a total of 6,255 Apetit Plc shares held by the company were transferred to the Board members on 3 December 2019.
