Notice to convene annual general meeting
Baltic Horizon Fund General Meeting – notice to investors
Northern Horizon Capital AS invites Baltic Horizon Fund unit-holders to attend an annual General Meeting on 26 May 2020 at 15:00 (EET, local Estonian time) at the office of Northern Horizon Capital AS at Tornimäe 2, 24th floor, 10145 Tallinn, Estonia. Registration for the meeting will begin at 14:00.
The meeting is convened in accordance with sections 8.3, 8.7, 10.3.1, 10.4 and 10.6 of the Rules of Baltic Horizon Fund and section 47-1 and section 55-9 of the Investment Funds Act of Estonia.
The total number of units and votes in Baltic Horizon Fund amounts to 113,387,525.
Considering that the Estonian government announced an emergency situation on 12 March 2020 due to the pandemic spread of the coronavirus around the world and its spread in Estonia, Northern Horizon Capital AS strongly recommends unit-holders not to participate in the meeting physically and issue a power of attorney with instructions for voting to exercise their rights as a unit-holder. We propose the unit-holders to consider designating fund manager Tarmo Karotam as their authorised representative.
Unit-holders may also join the webinar to view the annual general meeting online on 26 May 2020 at 15:00. The webinar will be held in English.

Participation – requirements and notice
Investors who are entered in the Baltic Horizon Fund registry of unit-holders maintained by Nasdaq CSD SE ten days before the date of the General Meeting, i.e. at the end of business of Nasdaq CSD SE on 15 May 2020, are entitled to participate in the meeting.
In order to facilitate the registration process, Investors whose units are registered in their own name are invited to provide notice of their attendance by 19 May 2020 to email@example.com. Notice should include name, personal identification number (or the registration number of the legal person), address, number of units represented and, if applicable, attendance of any representatives, along with the name and personal identification number of the representatives. The attendance of a representative does not deprive the unit-holder of the right to participate at the meeting.
Instructions to holders of Baltic Horizon Fund units registered with Euroclear Sweden AB in Sweden
Notice of participation should be sent by 16:00 EET on 19 May 2020 to firstname.lastname@example.org. Notice should include name, personal identification number (or the registration number of the legal person), address, number of units represented and, if applicable, attendance of any representatives, along with the name and personal identification number of the representatives. The attendance of a representative does not deprive the unit-holder of the right to participate at the meeting.
Representation under a power of attorney
Unit-holders whose representatives are acting under a power of attorney are requested to prepare a written power of attorney for the representative in Estonian or English (templates can be found at Annex 1).
A copy of the executed power of attorney should be sent to email@example.com together with the notice of participation. In case the power of attorney is issued by a legal person, a certified copy of the registration certificate (or equivalent certificate of authority) shall be also submitted together with, as applicable, the documents certifying the authority of the representative in case the power of attorney is signed by a person under a power of attorney.
Baltic Horizon Fund is registered in Estonia, which means that any power of attorney (or any certified copy of the registration certificate of a legal person) issued in a foreign country should be notarised and accompanied by an apostille. The apostille requirement applies, for example, to powers of attorney issued and notarised in Sweden or Finland.
Instructions for the day of the General Meeting
We kindly ask Investors to bring a personal identification document, and for their representatives also to present the original written power of attorney in English or Estonian. In case the unit-holder is a legal person, documentation in Estonian or English language certifying the authority of the unit-holder’s representative or the signatory of the power of attorney will be also requested.
Data collected by Northern Horizon Capital AS from powers of attorney, the unitholders registry maintained by Nasdaq CSD SE, and the list of holders of units registered in the Euroclear Sweden AB system will be used for the purpose of registration and preparing the voting list for the meeting.
Northern Horizon Capital AS proposals on the agenda item no 2
