Authorising Caverion's Board of Directors to decide on share issues

The Annual General Meeting of Caverion Corporation, held on 25 May 2020, authorised the Board of Directors to decide on share issues in accordance with the proposal by the Board of Directors. The number of shares to be issued may not exceed 13,500,000 shares, which corresponds to approximately 9.7% of all the shares in the Company. The Board of Directors decides on all the conditions of the issuance of shares. The authorisation concerns both the issuance of new shares as well as the transfer of treasury shares. The issuance of shares may be carried out in deviation from the shareholders’ pre-emptive rights (directed issue). The authorisation can be used e.g. in order to develop the Company's capital structure, to broaden the Company's ownership base, to be used as payment in corporate acquisitions or when the Company acquires assets relating to its business and as part of the Company's incentive programs.

The authorisation is valid until the closing of the next annual general meeting, however no later than 24 May 2021.


Authorising Caverion's Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase and/or on the acceptance as pledge of own shares of the company

The Annual General Meeting of Caverion Corporation, held on 25 May 2020, authorised the Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase and/or on the acceptance as pledge of the Company’s own shares in accordance with the proposal by the Board of Directors. The number of own shares to be repurchased and/or accepted as pledge shall not exceed 13,500,000 shares, which corresponds to approximately 9.7% of all the shares in the Company. The Company may use only unrestricted equity to repurchase own shares on the basis of the authorisation. Purchase of own shares may be made at a price formed in public trading on the date of the repurchase or otherwise at a price formed on the market. The Board of Directors resolves the manner in which own shares be repurchased and/or accepted as pledge. Repurchase of own shares may be made using, inter alia, derivatives. Repurchase and/or acceptance as pledge of own shares may be made otherwise than in proportion to the share ownership of the shareholders (directed repurchase or acceptance as pledge).

The authorisation cancels the authorisation given by the General Meeting on 25 March 2019 to decide on the repurchase and/or on the acceptance as pledge of the Company’s own shares. The authorisation is valid until 23 September 2021.

As part of the implementation of the Matching Share Plan, the company has accepted as a pledge the shares acquired by those key employees who took a loan from the company. As a result, Caverion had 711,034 Caverion Corporation shares as a pledge at the end of the reporting period on 31 March 2020.
