What is a minutes of extraordinary shareholders' meeting?

Unlike the annual or ordinary shareholders’ meeting, which is held within six months after the end of the business year, an extraordinary shareholders’ meeting is held during the business year and is not mandatory.

It is convened only when a company needs approval from its shareholders on one or several specific items, such as a change of domicile or the issuance of new shares.
