General meeting

The General Meeting is the highest authority of the Company. Aker BP’s articles of association and the Norwegian Public Limited Companies Act stipulate the role and mandate of the General Meeting which we follow.
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is held before the end of June each year and usually at the end of April. Notice with agenda for the AGM is sent out together with the annual report to shareholders registered with the Norwegian Central Securities Depository (VPS), no less than two weeks before the event. Aker BP encourages its shareholders to use the right to submit proposals and vote, either in person or by proxy. The registration deadline is set as close as possible to the actual day of the AGM, and normally the day before. Minutes are published on our website.

The Board may at any time call an Extraordinary General Meeting (EGM). If an auditor or shareholder representing at least five per cent of the share capital requests an EGM to discuss a particular matte, the Board of Aker BP will ensure that the meeting is held within a month of the request being submitted.
