Nokia Moving Its November 19 Shareholder Meeting on Microsoft Buyout to Helsinki Ice Hall

Nokia said late Sunday that it is moving its Nov. 19 shareholder gathering, saying the special meeting to vote on the Microsoft deal will now be held at an ice arena in Helsinki.


“Helsinki Ice Hall offers better connections to the participants arriving to the meeting and more flexibility in the practical arrangements of the venue,” Nokia said in a statement.

The meeting starts at 2 pm Finland time, with the doors opening two hours before that. Nokia shareholders, along with regulators, have to give the okay to complete the sale of Nokia’s device business to Microsoft.
