The board of directors has decided that the Extraordinary General Meeting should be conducted solely by way of postal vote pursuant to the temporary legislation being in effect in 2021. This means that the meeting will be held without the physical presence of shareholders, representatives or external parties. The shareholders will therefore only be able to exercise their voting rights by postal voting in the order prescribed below.
Right to participation
Those who wish to attend the meeting must:
In order to be entitled to participate in the meeting, a shareholder whose shares are registered in the name of a nominee must, in addition to giving notice of participation to the meeting by submitting its postal vote, register its shares in its own name so that the shareholder is recorded in the share register as of 17 August 2021. Such registration may be temporary (so-called voting rights registration), and request for such voting rights registration shall be made to the nominee in accordance with the nominee’s routines at such a time in advance as prescribed by the nominee. Voting rights registrations that have been made by the nominee no later than 19 August 2021 will be taken into account in the presentation of the share register.
Shareholders may exercise their voting rights at the meeting only by postal voting in accordance with section 22 of the Act (2020:198) on temporary exceptions to facilitate the execution of general meetings in companies and other associations. A special form must be used for the postal vote. The form is available on the Company’s website www.nedermangroup.com. The postal vote form is considered as notice to participate in the meeting.
In order to be considered, the completed and signed form must be received by Nederman no later than 24 August 2021. The completed and signed form must be sent by mail to Nederman Holding AB (publ), “Extraordinary General Meeting”, Box 602, 251 06 Helsingborg, mark the envelope with “Postal voting”, or by e-mail to [email protected], type “Postal voting” in the subject line.
If the shareholder submits its postal vote by proxy, a power of attorney must be attached to the postal voting form. Proxy forms are available upon request and also on the Company’s website www.nedermangroup.com. Shareholders who wish to be represented by proxy must submit a power of attorney in original form with their registration. Representatives of a legal entity must present a copy of the authenticated registration certificate or equivalent authorisation documents showing the authorised signatory of the entity.
The shareholders may not provide special instructions or conditions to the postal vote. If so, the entire postal vote is invalid. Further instructions and conditions can be found in the postal voting form.
Shareholders’ right to receive information
The board of directors and the CEO shall, if any shareholder so requests and the board of directors believes that it can be done without material harm to the Company, provide information regarding circumstances that may affect the assessment of an item on the agenda. A request for such information shall be made in writing to the Company no later than ten days prior to the meeting, i.e. no later than 15 August 2021, at Nederman Holding AB (publ), “Extraordinary General Meeting”, Box 602, 251 06 Helsingborg, or by email to [email protected].
