Annual General meeting

The Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday 20 April 2021, in Malmö. Due to the coronavirus and to curb the spread of the virus, the board of directors has decided that the annual general meeting should be conducted by way of postal vote pursuant to temporary legislation being in effect in 2021. This means that the annual general meeting will be held without the physical presence of shareholders, representatives or third parties. The shareholders will only be able to exercise their voting rights by postal voting in the manner prescribed below.

Right to attend

A person who wishes to participate in the annual general meeting by postal voting must

  • be listed as a shareholder in the presentation of the share register kept by Euroclear Sweden AB concerning the circumstances on 12 April 2021, and
  • give notice of participation no later than 19 April 2021, by casting its postal vote in accordance with the instructions under the heading “Postal voting” below so that the postal voting form is received by BE Group no later than that day.

In order to be entitled to participate in the annual general meeting, a shareholder whose shares are registered in the name of a nominee must, in addition to giving notice of participation in the annual general meeting by submitting its postal vote, register its shares in its own name so that the shareholder is listed in the presentation of the share register as of, 12 April 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 decided by the nominee. Voting rights registrations that have been made by the nominee no later than 14 April 2021 will be taken into account in the presentation of the share register.
