The parent company’s and the Group’s income statements and balance sheets were adopted. The Board of Directors and the President were discharged from liability for the financial year 2012.
The Meeting resolved to adopt the proposed remunerations to the Board that were communicated in the notice convening the AGM. The proposal for remuneration guidelines for Group Management was also approved, as well as the scope of and the principles for Electrolux performance based, long-term share program for 2013.
The Meeting authorized the Board of Directors to resolve on acquisitions of Electrolux B-shares up to a maximum amount of 10 per cent of all shares issued by the company. The Board was also authorized to transfer own shares on account of company acquisitions. These authorizations are effective during the period until next year’s AGM. As the proposal to transfer B-shares to the participants in the share program for 2013 was not supported by a required majority of shareholders holding at least nine tenths of the votes cast, the Board of Directors will, as set out in the proposal to the AGM, consider other means to meet the delivery undertakings under the program.
