Fortum: Nine Elected to Board and Dividend Approved in General Meeting

Fortum’s Board Composition Decided at General Meeting

Fortum recently announced the results of its general meeting where nine people were elected to the board. The company’s chairman, Mikael Silvennoinen, was re-elected for another term. Essimari Kairisto was also elected as the vice president, while Ralf Christian, Luisa Delgado, Jonas Gustavsson, Marita Niemelä, Prank Paavola, Johan Söderström, and Vesa-Pekka Takala were appointed as members of the board. The state had previously announced that it would be giving up its board seat in Fortum when Maia Strandberg left his position.

During the general meeting, discharge from liability for the 2023 financial year was granted to all board members and the CEO. A dividend of EUR 1.15 per share was approved, and the board was authorized to decide on the acquisition of the company’s own shares. This authorization included the acquisition and transfer of a maximum of 20 million shares. This decision revoked the acquisition authorization granted at the company’s previous annual general meeting in 2023.
