Indutrade’s Board of Directors postpones the Annual General Meeting, and announces that a new review of the proposal of dividend will take place before the notice is sent
Due to the prevailing uncertainty caused by covid-19, and the decision by the Swedish Government to ban public gatherings and public events with more than 50 people, the Board of Directors of Indutrade has resolved to postpone the 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM). The AGM was scheduled for May 6, 2020 in Stockholm.
Given the uncertain market situation, Indutrade’s Board of Directors has decided that before the notice of the AGM, the previously communicated proposal of dividend of SEK 4.75 per share will be reconsidered. Indutrade will publish the notice to the AGM, taking into account the prevailing situation, no later than four weeks prior to the new date. The AGM will at the latest be held on 30 June 2020, in accordance with existing legislation.
Furthermore, Indutrade's Group Management has announced that they will waive ten percent of their salaries from 1 April 2020 until the situation is more stable.
