Husqvarna AB postpones its Annual General Meeting
Husqvarna AB’s Board of Directors has decided to postpone the Annual General Meeting (AGM), previously scheduled for April 2, 2020. This decision was made in light of the developing situation regarding the corona virus (COVID-19), as well as the rule announced last week by the Swedish government restricting public gatherings of more than 50 people.
As previously communicated, Kai Wärn will step down from his role as CEO and Board Member as of April 2, 2020, and Henric Andersson will assume the role of CEO as of such date. Such changes are unaffected by the decision to postpone the AGM.
Husqvarna AB will publish a new invitation to the AGM no later than four weeks prior to a new date to be set by the Board. In accordance with existing legislation, the AGM must at the latest be held on June 30, 2020.
