Updated information regarding Cloetta’s Annual General Meeting on April 2
Due to the spread of the coronavirus (COVID-19), Cloetta is taking precautionary measures in relation to the Annual General Meeting on April 2, 2020.
Cloetta is mindful of the health and well-being of its shareholders and employees and considers it important to reduce the risk of transmission of the virus. According to the Public Health Agency of Sweden, there is now a community spread of the coronavirus in Sweden, especially in Stockholm, and persons over the age of 70 and persons who do not feel well are urged to stay at home.
Given the current circumstances, and with the aim to keep the number of attendees to a minimum, Cloetta encourages shareholders not to attend in person and instead use the option to appoint a proxy holder who can vote on their behalf. Shareholders who chose to authorize a proxy holder can find relevant documents using the following link.
In order to minimize the potential risk of transmission of the virus, Cloetta will ensure that the meeting is as short and concise as possible. The planned presentations will be kept to a minimum, external guests will not attend the meeting, and participation by both Board members and the Company’s Executive Management team will be minimized. To further minimize the length of the AGM, no refreshments or products will be offered in connection with the meeting.
The registration will open 30 minutes prior to the meeting that starts at 3 p.m. on April 2, 2020.
Cloetta closely monitors the development of events and will, if necessary, update the above described precautionary measures prior to the Annual General Meeting. For up-to-date general information about the coronavirus, please read more at the Public Health Agency of Sweden’s website.
