Componenta Oyj: Changes to the arrangements of Annual General Meeting due to the coronavirus
Componenta Corporation Stock Exchange Release 26 March 2020 at 17.40
Componenta Corporation has issued on 17 March 2020 the notice to the Annual General Meeting to be held on 16 April 2020 at 9.00.
Due to the coronavirus pandemic, Componenta respectfully asks its shareholders to refrain from attending the AGM in person if possible.
Shareholders have the opportunity to follow the AGM remotely instead of attending in person. Shareholders who are natural persons can order a personal link to the AGM latest by 16 April 2020 at 8.00 EET. The link to the ordering form can be found from the company website at https://www.componenta.com/investors/corporate-governance/general-meeting/agm-2020/. Ordering the link requires identification with a personal bank identifier or mobile certificate. Owners of nominee-registered shares cannot order the video link. Shareholders following the meeting remotely are not considered to attend the Annual General Meeting and cannot speak or vote remotely.
In order to exercise their voting rights, shareholders can authorise a person to represent themselves and to exercise their voting rights at the meeting. To minimise the number of people attending the meeting, it is recommended that shareholders use the opportunity to authorise Attorney Erik Stenman (Borenius Attorneys Ltd), or a person authorised by him, to represent and exercise voting rights at the meeting.
In addition to the remote link and the proxy service, Componenta will take the following measures to avoid risks at the Annual General Meeting:
- Participation of members of the Board of Directors and the Corporate Executive Team is limited to a minimum
- The presentations have been abbreviated
- CEO’s review will be available in full on the company web site after the meeting
- Nominees to the Board of Directors will be presented through the presentation material
- Seats in the meeting rooms will be spaced apart and special attention is paid to hygiene
- Arrangements will be made to keep a large number of people from meeting each other when arriving or leaving the AGM
- Hand sanitiser will be available
- There will be no catering at the meeting
- No material will be handed out at the meeting
Componenta is following the corona pandemic situation closely and will update its guidelines and safety measures accordingly prior to the AGM. All information related to the AGM, instructions for ordering the remote link and utilizing the proxy, as well as any further information on the practical arrangements can be found on the company website at: https://www.componenta.com/investors/corporate-governance/general-meeting/agm-2020/.
Componenta asks shareholders to follow and comply with all official guidelines and recommendations when assessing whether to attend the Annual General Meeting in person. Those shareholders who have already registered for the meeting and do not wish to attend nor use the proxy service, are encouraged to cancel their prior notice of attendance as soon as possible.
