Due to the Coronavirus pandemic and resulting ban on public gatherings until 31 August 2020, the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board of Schweizer Electronic AG have decided to hold the Annual General Meeting virtually this year in compliance with the new legal provision.
Postponing the Annual General Meeting to an as yet indeterminable date after 31 August 2020 would have meant that shareholders would have had to wait for several months to be able to exercise their right to ask questions and vote.
The invitation to the virtual Annual General Meeting to be held on 26 June 2020 was published today in the German Federal Gazette. Registered shareholders can submit their questions until 24 June 2020. An online portal is available that registered shareholders can use to exercise their voting rights. They can also vote in advance by postal ballot or by proxy via the company's voting right representative. Further details can be found in the invitation to shareholders.
