Change of venue of the Elisa Annual General Meeting 2 April 2020 and special arrangements
ELISA STOCK EXCHANGE RELEASE 20 MARCH 2020 AT 8:00 AM
Elisa takes the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation extremely seriously. The Board of Directors of Elisa have decided that the Annual General Meeting on 2 April 2020 will take place if the meeting can be arranged within the restrictions set by authorities.
In these circumstances the venue of the Annual General Meeting will be changed from Messukeskus to Elisa's headquarters (Ratavartijankatu 5, Helsinki), and Elisa will contact the participants beforehand. The aim of these measures is to achieve resolutions from the AGM, and ensure payment of proposed dividend, a total of nearly EUR 300 million, in original schedule to Elisa's shareholders, of which the largest ones include the Finnish Government and large Finnish pension insurance companies.
The Annual General Meeting will be held on 2 April 2020 at Elisa headquarters, Ratavartijankatu 5, Helsinki at 2:00 pm. The length of the AGM will be reduced to only matters presented on the notice of the meeting. There will be no refreshments prior the meeting, handouts or other activities.
To ensure decisions for the AGM we have received confirmation from the largest shareholders that they will vote in favor of all the proposals presented on the Invitation to attend, and that they will participate the meeting by way of proxy representation instead of physical participation.
We strongly recommend the shareholders to consider not to participate the AGM in order to enable the meeting to take place. We offer video broadcast (webcast) from the meeting in Finnish at elisa.com/agm. The shareholder's shares are not considered to have attended the meeting, and it is not possible to speak or vote over the webcast.
Information about the Annual General Meeting, proxy instructions and information about the arrangements is available on elisa.com/agm
