Shareholder register and waiting list
In a company whose shares have been entered in the book-entry system, the list of owners is maintained by virtue of the law on behalf of the company by the central securities depository, Euroclear Finland Oy. This list of owners is divided into two parts – a shareholder register and a waiting list. Ownership entered in the shareholder register entitles to all rights required by law and Articles of Association, of which the right to dividend and the right to participate and vote in the annual general meetings are the most essential ones. Ownership entered on the waiting list entitles, e.g., to receive dividend payable by the Company and gives pre-emptive right in a share issue, but does not give the right to participate or vote in annual general meetings.
