Since the 2003 Annual General Meeting there is a conversion clause allowing conversion of A to B shares in the articles of association. This means that owners of A shares have an ongoing right to convert them to B shares. In March 2011 5,000 A shares in Ratos were converted to B shares, which affects the total number of votes.
After the latest conversion in March, the total number of A shares in Ratos is 42,318,530 (78% of the votes) and the number of B shares is 119,751,918 (22% of the votes). The total number of votes is 54,293,722.
