The Board of Directors of Alimak Group AB has decided that shareholders are to be able to exercise their voting rights by post before the annual general meeting (AGM). The company urges shareholders to use this option to minimise the number of participants present in person at the meeting, thereby helping to reduce the risk of spreading the virus that causes COVID-19.
Vote-by-post form and further information on voting by post is available at https://www.alimakgroup.com/English/investor-relations/corporate-governance/agm/Annual-General-Meeting-2020/ and will be sent by post to shareholders upon request, provided they provide their postal address. Note that the vote-by-post form must be received by the company not later than 17.00 CEST on 6 May 2020. Postal voting is also possible electronically by BankID-authorisation.
Information on the Annual General Meeting may be updated as the situation develops. Continuously updated information on the Annual General Meeting will be available at www.alimakgroup.com.
