Due to the risk of spreading Covid-19 and the authorities’ regulations/guidance on avoiding gatherings of people, the Board of Directors has decided that the general meeting should be held without physical presence by inviting the shareholders to exercise their voting rights only by postal voting. Information on the resolutions adopted by the general meeting will be published on 22 October 2020 as soon as the results of the postal vote has been finalised. For further information, see the notice for the Extraordinary General Meeting in full length attached.
