Componenta Corporation Stock Exchange Release 5.9.2014 at 13.15
The Extraordinary General Meeting of Componenta Corporation, held on 5 September 2014, resolved in accordance with the proposal of the Board of Directors and the terms and conditions attached to the notice to the general meeting (with certain technical amendments), in derogation from the pre-emptive right of the shareholders, to execute a share issue directed to the public of a maximum of 53,000,000 new shares in total to be subscribed by individuals and corporations in Finland. The purpose of the share issue is to secure the continuity of the company’s operations by considerably strengthening the financial position of the company and hence there are weighty financial reasons for the company to derogate from the pre-emptive subscription right of the shareholders.
