Bergman & Beving AB: Bergman & Beving’s Annual General Meeting – Special coronavirus (COVID-19) measures
Bergman & Beving’s Annual General Meeting – Special coronavirus (COVID-19) measures
Bergman & Beving is concerned for its shareholders’ health and is striving to help limit the spread of the novel coronavirus in the best possible way. Bergman & Beving will thus observe all currently applicable restrictions and official recommendations.
Bergman & Beving has therefore decided to adopt the following precautionary measures
at the Annual General Meeting on 26 August 2020:
- Postal voting and electronic voting with BankID are available, as permitted by the new emergency law for general meetings.
- No food or drinks will be served.
- Customary speeches will be kept to a minimum.
- Some limitations will be enforced on the number of non-shareholders present.
Shareholders are encouraged to follow the official recommendations and to take responsibility for preventing the spread of the virus, including exercising the option to vote by mail or to participate via a proxy instead of being present physically. Shareholders who belong to a risk group do not need to participate in the Annual General Meeting. If the number of shareholders who are expected to participate physically in the Annual General Meeting exceeds the number allowed or recommended by the relevant authorities, or if the Board otherwise judges that the Annual General Meeting cannot be held in a sufficiently safe manner, the Annual General Meeting may be cancelled at very short notice.
Additional instructions for registering through power of attorney or postal voting will be available on Bergman & Beving’s website, www.bergmanbeving.com, well ahead of the Annual General Meeting.
