Note on possible effects of the spreading coronavirus (COVID-19) on the GEA Annual General Meeting
Preparations for the GEA Annual General Meeting on April 30, 2020 in Düsseldorf are running despite the current restrictions on public events. We are hoping, that the meeting can take place in 6 weeks from now as planned, taking into account increased hygiene standards and other potential protection measures.
For our shareholders who might prefer not to participate in the Annual General Meeting personally at the venue, we would like to point out the opportunity to participate in the voting by issuing power of attorney and instructions, e.g. to the proxies named by the company, their bank, or other third parties. In addition, we plan to enable shareholders to issue online power of attorney and instructions for voting their shares on the day of the Annual General Meeting online until shortly before the beginning of the vote. Besides, shareholders are going to be able to follow both the speech of our CEO Stefan Klebert as well as the general debate by broadcast in full online. Details will be described in the invitation to the Annual General Meeting, which will be published shortly.
As usual, our shareholders will be granted access to the online proxy and instruction system via this webpage. To be able to log into the system and to use it, shareholders must be registered for the Annual General Meeting and use the log-in data provided to them with their admission card after registration.
Of course, we are monitoring further developments in connection with the spread of the coronavirus very closely and are in close contact with health experts, competent authorities and other bodies involved.
Should a change in the situation become apparent, we will provide information on appropriate measures as soon as possible.
