Decisions at the 2020 Annual General Meeting, Bank of Åland Plc (Ålandsbanken Abp)

Adoption of financial statements and granting of discharge from liability of those accountable

Today’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) approved the adoption of the financial statements and the consolidated financial statements for 2019 and granted discharge from liability to those accountable for the financial year 2019.

Dividend distribution

In accordance with the proposal of the Board of Directors, the AGM approved a decision to authorise the Board to decide on a maximum dividend of EUR 1.00 per share for the financial year 2019, to be distributed on one or more dates. This authorisation would be valid until the 2021 AGM. The Board intends to comply with the recommendation issued by the European Central Bank (ECB) and the Finnish Financial Supervisory Authority (FIN-FSA) and to refrain from deciding any dividend on the basis of the authorisation before October 1, 2020. The Bank of Åland will publish any dividend decisions separately and simultaneously confirm the record date and the distribution date for the dividend. The 2021 AGM will decide on the allocation of profit for the financial year 2020, based on a proposal by the Board of Directors that is expected to be published during the first quarter of 2021.
