The Annual General Meeting adopted the annual accounts and the consolidated annual accounts for the financial year ended 31 December 2022, discharged the members of the Company’s Board of Directors and the CEO from liability, and approved all proposals made to the Annual General Meeting by the Board of Directors. The Annual General Meeting also approved the 2022 remuneration report for governing bodies. The resolution is of an advisory nature according to the Finnish Companies Act.

Resolution on the use of the profit shown on the balance sheet and the payment of dividend

The Annual General Meeting resolved that a dividend of EUR 0.07 per share will be paid for the financial year 30 June 2022 – 31 December 2022. The amount of the dividend is based on the Company’s shorter than normal financial year 30 June 2022 – 31 December 2022. The dividend will be paid to shareholders who are registered in the Company's shareholders’ register, maintained by Euroclear Finland Oy, on the record date for dividend payment on 27 March 2023. The dividend will be paid on 4 April 2023.

Composition and remuneration of the Board of Directors

The Annual General Meeting resolved that the number of the members of the Board of Directors shall be six (6). The current board members Pertti Ervi, Thomas Jul, Madeleine Lassoued, Risto Siilasmaa and Petra Teräsaho were re-elected to the Board of Directors. Sami Salonen, who belongs to the personnel of the corporation, was elected as a new member of the Board of Directors.

It was resolved that the remuneration of the members of the Board shall remain unchanged. The remuneration is as follows: EUR 80,000 annually for the Chair of the Board of Directors, EUR 48,000 annually for the Committee Chairs, EUR 38,000 annually for the members of the Board of Directors and EUR 12,667 for members employed by F-Secure.

If inter-continental travel is required, the fee is EUR 2,000. No separate meeting fee will be paid to members of the Board of Directors employed by the Company.

The Annual General Meeting re-elected the audit firm PricewaterhouseCoopers Oy as Auditor of the Company. Mr Janne Rajalahti, APA, will continue as the Company’s Responsible Auditor. The Auditor will be remunerated in accordance with the invoice approved by the Company.

Authorising the Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase of the Company’s own shares

The Annual General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to resolve on the repurchase of a maximum of 10,000,000 of the Company’s own shares in one or more instalments with funds belonging to the Company’s unrestricted equity. The authorisation entitles the Board of Directors to decide on the repurchase also in deviation from the proportional holdings of the shareholders (directed repurchase). The authorisation comprises the repurchase of shares either in the public trading or otherwise in the market on the trading price determined for the shares in public trading on the date of purchase, or with a purchase offer to the shareholders in which case the repurchase price must be the same for all shareholders. The authorisation includes the right of the Board of Directors to decide on all other terms related to the repurchase of the Company’s own shares.

The authorisation will remain valid until the conclusion of the next Annual General Meeting, in any case until no later than 30 June 2024. The authorisation cancels the Company’s prior authorisations concerning the repurchase of the Company’s own shares.

Authorising the Board of Directors to decide on the issuance of shares and special rights entitling to shares

The Annual General Meeting authorised the Board of Directors to decide on issuance, in one or more instalments, of new shares or shares possibly held by the Company through share issue and/or issuance of option rights or other special rights entitling to shares, referred to in Chapter 10, Section 1 of the Finnish Companies Act, so that by virtue of the authorisation altogether 15,000,000 shares may be issued and/or conveyed at the maximum.

The authorisation be used for the financing or execution of potential acquisitions or other arrangements or investments relating to the Company’s business, for the implementation of the Company’s incentive scheme or for other purposes subject to the Board of Directors’ decision.

The authorisation entitles the Board of Directors to decide on all terms and conditions of the share issue and the issuance of special rights referred to in Chapter 10, Section 1 of the Finnish Companies Act. The authorisation thus includes the right to issue shares also in a proportion other than that of the shareholders’ current shareholdings in the Company under the conditions provided in law, the right to issue shares against payment or without charge as well as the right to decide on a share issue without payment to the Company itself, subject to the provisions of the Finnish Companies Act on the maximum amount of treasury shares.

The authorisation will remain valid until the conclusion of the following Annual General Meeting, however, at the latest until 30 June 2024. The authorisation cancels the Company’s prior authorisations concerning the issuance of shares and special rights entitling to shares.

Amendment of the Articles of Association

The Annual General Meeting resolved that § 10 of the Company’s Articles of Association was amended to enable holding a general meeting entirely without a physical meeting venue as a so-called remote meeting. In its amended form, said provision of the Articles of Association will read as follows:

“Article 10 Place of a General Meeting

In addition to the company’s domicile, a general meeting may be held in Espoo or Vantaa.

The Board of Directors may resolve on organising the General Meeting without a meeting venue whereby the shareholders exercise their decision-making power in full in real time during the meeting using telecommunication connection and technical means.”

In other respects, no amendments were made to the Articles of Association.

Organisational meeting of the Board of Directors

In its organisational meeting held after the Annual General Meeting, the Board of Directors of F-Secure re-elected Pertti Ervi as Chairman of the Board of Directors.

From among its number, the Board elected Pertti Ervi, Petra Teräsaho and Risto Siilasmaa as members of the Audit Committee. 

The Board of Directors has evaluated the independence of its members of the company and of significant shareholders. All members are independent of the Company’s major shareholders with the exception of Risto Siilasmaa, who is himself a significant shareholder of the Company. All members are independent of the Company with the exception of Sami Salonen, who is himself an employee of the Company.
