Shareholder´s Participation in the GSM
The right of the shareholder to attend the GSM is checked upon an extract of the shareholder´s account led by the member of Central Securities Depository in the Slovak Republic or by the member of foreign central depository made ount on the decided date.
Extract of the shareholder's account (certificate)
In case that the certificate is sent to the Company directly by the depository (bank or other member of central depository),it is necessary to present it either in Slovak or English language.
In case the certificate is sent by the shareholder himself, it is necessary to present a sworn translation into Slovak.
All related costs are borne directly by shareholders.
Granting power of attorney
Considering Slovak legislation, all shareholders who wish to grant a power of attorney (POAT) to any person to represent them on the GSM are recommended to use the attached template and to attest their signature on the POAT by a notary in Slovakia. According to many bilateral agreements among Slovakia and rest EU countries both sides accept notaries of each other without apostille in case of state institution actions (courts, prosecutors, etc.), the Company also decided not to demand apostille in case foreign notary authorises the POAT. So apostille is not needed.
May a POAT be prepared in a different language version than the attached template, it is necessary to present a sworn translation; apostile is obligatory.
Extract from the commercial register
In case a corporation is granting a power of attorney, the authorized person should also bring a current extract from the commercial register of the respective country (not older less 3 months); the stipulations about language apply accordingly.
All related costs are borne directly by shareholders.
Means of voting at the GSM
In line with the statutes of the Company the shareholders should vote by voting ticket at the GSM. In case the process will request an alternative organizational arrangement, the chairperson of the GSM (or another person in line with the statutes stipulations) will propose it on the spot.
Decision-Making by the GSM
The number of a shareholder's votes shall depend on the nominal value of shares held by such shareholder. Each share with a nominal value 0.033194 EUR shall represent one vote. Dated March 22nd, 2009 the capital of Company is devided into 21,360,000 pc shares, each in a nominal value of 0.033194 EUR.
Official language of the GSM
