Virtual Annual Shareholders' Meeting on June 26, 2020
Information on the Virtual Annual Shareholders' Meeting
The health of its shareholders and employees has the highest priority for Sartorius. In view of the persistent coronavirus pandemic and to avoid any risk of infection, the Executive Board, with the approval of the Supervisory Board, has decided to hold this year’s annual general meeting as a purely virtual event, without the physical presence of the shareholders or their proxies.
The annual general meeting will take place on Friday, June 26, 2020, at 10:00 a.m. (CEST) and be live-streamed in its entirety in a password-protected Internet service platform available on this website. The log-in data needed for the platform will be sent to shareholders after they register for the annual general meeting.
Holding the annual general meeting 2020 as a virtual event will require some modifications to the proceedings in comparison with previous years. We therefore request that the shareholders pay particular attention to the notes about registering for the meeting and about exercising their voting rights and other shareholder rights as described in the invitation to the meeting.
Shareholders or their proxy representatives can make use of the following functions in the Internet service platform in addition to participating in the annual general meeting:
- Granting of proxies, absentee voting, instructions to proxies or subsequent changes to or revocations of instructions
- Opportunity to ask questions before the annual general meeting
- Opportunity to object to resolutions of the annual general meeting
- Presence information on the day of the annual general meeting
- Display of voting results
