The administration of Bilot is divided between shareholders’ meetings, the Board of Directors and the CEO in accordance with the Finnish Limited Liability Companies Act and the Articles of Association.
Shareholders participate in the administration and supervision of the company through decisions taken at general meetings. Shareholders’ meetings are convened by the Board of Directors. Additionally, shareholders’ meetings shall be held if the company’s auditor or shareholders whose combined shares comprise at least one-tenth of all the shares in the company require it in writing for a specific case.
Shareholders’ meetings decide on matters stipulated to be under their authority by the Limited Liability Companies Act. In addition, the company’s activities are regulated by the Articles of Association and the Board of Directors’ working order.
The company does not follow the Corporate Governance Code published by the Securities Market Association, as it has been established to have no basis when considering the size of the company and the extent of its business activities.

The Board of Directors has overall responsibility for adequately arranging the management and activities of the company. The board directs and supervises the company’s senior management, appoints and removes the CEO and approves significant decisions regarding company strategy, investment, organisational changes, management bonus schemes and financing.
