General meeting

The General Meeting of shareholders is the highest decision making body in a limited liability company.

The Annual General Meeting elects the Board of Directors and auditors and makes decisions on such matters as changes in the Articles of Association and in the share capital.

According to the Swedish Companies Act, within six months of the expiry of each financial year, Swedish limited liability companies shall hold a general meeting of shareholders, where the Board of Directors shall present the Annual Report and the Auditors’ Report. This shareholder meeting is called the Annual General Meeting (AGM). At Scania, the AGM is normally held during April or May.
