Important information in relation to Covid-19
Having considered the travel restrictions and governments’ and public health authorities’ recommendations and instructions regarding holding public gatherings, the Board has decided to hold the AGM in Malta. In present circumstances, the Board is of the view that physical presence at the AGM involves unnecessary health risks for shareholders and is contrary to the guidelines of the government and health authorities to combat the pandemic. The Board therefore suggests to the shareholders to consider casting their votes in respect of the resolutions proposed to the AGM by voting via proxy, without attending the AGM in person. Shareholders are encouraged to use their right to appoint the chairperson of the AGM as their proxy to attend the meeting and vote on their behalf. Proxy form and voting instructions may be found on the Company’s website (https://www.anglergaming.com/general-meetings-3/). The results of the voting on the resolutions will be published on the Company’s website as soon as practically possible after the AGM.
Given the large shareholder base of the Company in Sweden and internationally, the Company will endeavour to livestream the upcoming AGM and allow shareholders to follow the business of the AGM remotely from their location of choice, although this will not constitute formal attendance at the meeting. If the AGM is livestreamed, further details will be announced and made available on the Company’s website in due course. The Company welcomes questions by shareholders related to the business of the AGM, which can be submitted at email@example.com before 12:00 CEST on 16th June 2021. The Board will endeavour to answer these questions during the meeting.
The articles of association of the Company presently do not allow “hybrid” general meetings, whereby shareholders may formally participate electronically in the AGM in conjunction with a physical meeting. Presently, shareholders must be present in person or by proxy to be able to vote and to be counted in quorum at the general meetings.
With respect to the upcoming AGM, the Company will strive to hold a swift and effective meeting to minimize the health risks for the participants. As part of this, external guests are not being invited to the AGM, there will be no social gatherings surrounding the meeting and no food will be served before or during the meeting. Shareholders who are sick or vulnerable should not participate in person at the AGM but can vote via proxy.
