Solidium as an owner
Solidium is an active minority shareholder in listed companies. To increase shareholder value we develop our portfolio companies using the tools available for an owner.
Solidium is an owner and the largest or second largest shareholder in 12 companies. The total value of the shareholdings was EUR 6.3 billion at the end of June 2016, which accounts for approximately 37 per cent of the State’s total holdings in listed companies.
The State of Finland has an important position as an owner of Finnish listed companies. The governance, the objectives and transparency of the State’s listed holdings influence the functioning of the Finnish capital markets considerably. Solidium’s holdings are not considered strategic by the State, and the divestment of holdings does not require a decision by the Parliament.
