The annual general meeting of Okmetic Oyj has on 12 April 2012 authorised the board of directors to transfer own shares held by the company for instance through a directed share issue. The company's board of directors has granted the persons participating in the share reward programme share rewards in accordance with the terms and conditions of the programme by means of a directed share issue without payment comprising a total of 18,540 own shares held by the company.
