The Annual General Meeting adopted the annual accounts for the financial period ending on 31 December 2014. The Annual General Meeting resolved in accordance with the Board's proposal that no dividend be paid and that the parent company's loss for the financial period (EUR 2,677,306.56) be recognised in equity.

There will be no separate fee for each meeting. Eventual travel expenses will be compensated according to the travel regulations of the company.

Reduction of share capital to cover losses and to transfer funds to unrestricted equity reserves
The Annual General Meeting resolved to reduce the share capital of the company from the present EUR 20,486,769.50 by EUR 19,486,769.50 to cover the losses and to transfer funds to unrestricted equity reserves as follows:
The losses accumulated before and on the financial period ending on 31 December 2014 will be covered by decreasing the unrestricted equity reserve by EUR 14,621,937.92, by decreasing the share premium account by EUR 44,316.59 and by decreasing the share capital by EUR 12,528,512.06.
After covering the losses the remaining share capital will further be decreased by EUR 6,958,257.44 by transferring the funds to the unrestricted equity reserve.
After these measures the new share capital of the company will be EUR 1,000,000 and the unrestricted equity reserve will be EUR 6,958,257.44. The parent company's equity will accordingly exceed the level set in the Companies Act, chapter 20, section 23.
Covering the losses will clarify the parent company's balance sheet structure and improve the ratio between the company's equity and share capital. The arrangement will be implemented in accordance with the creditor protection procedure as regulated in the Companies Act, chapter 14, sections 3-5. Furthermore, distributions to shareholders during the three years following the registration of the reduction of share capital are restricted.
Authorising the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of shares as well as the issuance of other special rights entitling to shares
The Annual General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to decide to issue a maximum of 10,911,403 new shares either against payment or without payment.
The new shares may be issued to the company's shareholders in proportion to their current shareholdings in the company or deviating from the shareholders' pre-emptive right through one or more directed share issue, if the company has a weighty financial reason to do so, such as developing the company's equity structure, implementing mergers and acquisitions or other restructuring measures aimed at developing the company's business, financing of investments and operations or using the shares as a part of the company's remuneration and compensation system. The Board of Directors will decide upon terms and scope related to share issues.
Based on the authorisation, the Board of Directors can pursuant to chapter 10, section 1 of the Companies Act also decide on issuing other special rights entitling to new shares of the company.
The subscription price of the new shares can be recorded partly or fully to the invested unrestricted equity reserves or to equity according to the decision of the Board of Directors.
The Board of Directors is entitled to decide on conditions regarding the issuance of shares as well as the issuance of other special rights entitling to shares.
The authorisation is valid for one year from the Annual General Meeting.
