Notice to convene annual general meeting

CORRECTION: Notice to convene the Annual General Meeting of Nordic Fibreboard AS

Nordic Fibreboards AS amends the 10.07.2020 notice of calling the Annual General Meeting. Items 4 and 5 about introducing no par value shares and reduction of share capital are added to the agenda. The aforementioned resolutions were already adopted at the extraordinary general meeting held on 26.06.2020, however, the company has now decided to further amend the new book value of one share. Therefore the reduction of share capital will be put to voting at the 10.08.2020 general meeting and the proposed amount of capital decrease will be adjusted. As no share capital changes have been effected based on the resolutions adopted on 26.06.2020, then the new voting on reduction of share capital does not change the rights of shareholders. Nordic Fibreboard AS will not enforce the share capital changes based on 26.06.2020 resolutions and will follow the decisions to be adopted at the 10.08.2020 Annual General Meeting.

The Annual General Meeting of Nordic Fibreboard AS (registry code: 11421437, address: Suur-Jõe 48, Pärnu 80042, hereinafter the Company) will be held on the 10th of August 2020 at 9.am at Suur-Jõe 48, Pärnu.
