According to the Articles of Association, the Company’s auditor must be a firm of Authorised Public Accountants approved by the Finnish Patent and Registration Office, and the chief auditor must be an Authorised Public Accountant. The auditor is elected at the Annual General Meeting to a term of office that ends at the close of the Annual General Meeting following the auditor's election. The Annual General Meeting also decides on the remuneration to be paid to the auditor. The Board of Directors’ Audit Committee prepares a proposal on the Company’s auditor and their remuneration. This proposal is then presented to the Annual General Meeting by the Board of Directors.
The 2023 Annual General Meeting elected PricewaterhouseCoopers Oy, a firm of authorised public accountants, as the Company’s auditor for a term ending at the close of the 2024 Annual General Meeting. Markku Katajisto, Authorised Public Accountant, is the principal auditor. The auditor’s fees are paid on the basis of an approved invoice.
