ElringKlinger hosts annual general meeting virtually
Due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, ElringKlinger AG has decided to host the upcoming Annual General Meeting on July 7, 2020 virtually, as protecting the health of shareholders, employees and service providers is a top priority for the Group. This is also in line with the contact restrictions and the resulting ban on major events, which is to apply until at least 31 August 2020.
Dettingen/Erms (Germany), April 23, 2020 +++ In the wake of the coronavirus pandemic, ElringKlinger AG decided early in March to postpone the Annual General Meeting, originally scheduled for May 19, 2020, to the later date of July 7, 2020. In mid-April, the Federal Government agreed with the state governments to extend the ban on major events until at least August 31, 2020. In addition, with the law on COVID-19 measures, the legislator made it possible for annual general meetings to be held virtually at short notice.
In order to protect the health of shareholders, employees and involved service providers, and in accordance with the state regulation, ElringKlinger AG will therefore refrain from the physical presence of shareholders and their proxies and hold the Annual General Meeting on July 7, 2020 as a purely virtual event. After registering in due time, shareholders can participate in the Annual General Meeting via the Internet and exercise their voting rights by proxy designated by the company or by postal vote. Questions regarding the agenda can be submitted in advance.
Further details will be included in the invitation to the Annual General Meeting, which will be published in the electronic Federal Gazette no later than May 29, 2020.
