In case of non compliance towards the provisions of article 28a E.L 2190/1920, said shareholder can only participate in the General Meeting upon Company permission. It is noted that the practising of these rights (participation and voting) does not require the binding of the beneficiary’s shares or any other similar procedure, which limits the option to sell or purchase shares during the time period between the date of registration and the date the General Meeting is held.
Β. SHAREHOLDER MINORITY RIGHTS – (a) By a shareholders application representing one twentieth (1/20) of the deposited capital stock, the Company Board of Directors is obliged to include additional issues in the daily agenda of the General Meeting, if the application has been received prior to the

Each shareholder can appoint up to three (3) representatives. Legal persons participate in the Meeting by appointing as representatives up to three (3) natural persons.

The shareholder’s representative is obliged to announce to the Company, before the General Meeting is held, any specific fact which may prove useful in assessing the risk that the representative will serve interests other than those of the represented shareholder.
