Korjaus Pihlajalinna Oyj:n englanninkieliseen yhtiökokouskutsuun

Pihlajalinna Oyj:n 11.3.2016 klo 8.15 julkaistussa englanninkielisessä yhtiökokouskutsussa oli virhe kohdassa 11 "Hallituksen jäsenten lukumäärästä päättäminen". Tiedotteessa todetaan virheellisesti, että yhtiön suurimmat osakkeenomistajat, jotka edustavat yhteensä 37,9 prosenttia yhtiön äänistä ja osakkeista, ehdottaisivat, että hallituksen jäsenten lukumäärä on kahdeksan (8). Yhtiön suurimmat osakkeenomistajat, jotka edustavat yhteensä noin 37,9 prosenttia yhtiön osakkeista ja äänistä, ovat ilmoittaneet julkistavansa ehdotuksen hallituksen jäsenten lukumäärästä ennen yhtiökokousta. Suomenkielisessä tiedotteessa asiakohta oli esitetty oikein. Lisäksi tiedotteiden kieliversioiden välillä oli tekninen tekstiero kohdassa 16 "Hallituksen valtuuttaminen päättämään osakeannista ja muiden osakkeisiin oikeuttavien erityisten oikeuksien antamisesta".
