Lemminkäinens Annual General Meeting is held annually within six months of the end of each accounting period on a date to be determined by the Board of Directors.
The AGM decides on matters as required in the provisions of the Companies Act, such as adoption of the year-end financial statements, profit distribution, and the granting of discharge from liability to the members of the Board of Directors and to the President & CEO. The AGM also elects the members of the Board of Directors and the auditors and decides on the fees that will be paid to them.
