Special arrangements in view of the outbreak of the novel corona virus and COVID-19
The continued spread of the novel corona virus and COVID-19 remains difficult to assess with any certainty. At this time, public gatherings with more than 50 participants are prohibited. Tele2 is mindful of the health of the shareholders as well as the work to limit the spread of the virus, and will of course comply with any applicable restrictions and limitations for gatherings. If there is a risk that the number of people present at the Annual General Meeting will exceed the restrictions and limitations for gatherings applicable at the time, Tele2 may decide to postpone the Annual General Meeting until a later date.
Further, as a precautionary measure, Tele2 has decided – in consultation with experts and in response to feedback from concerned shareholders – to implement a number of precautionary measures at the 2020 Annual General Meeting. Postal voting or the use of a proxy holder is strongly encouraged, recorded speeches will be published in advance and the agenda has been shortened. In addition:
- Registration will begin at 14:40 CEST.
- No food or drinks will be served before the meeting.
- No speeches or presentations will be held. Recorded speeches will be made available at this page no later than 27 April 2020, including presentations by: Anders Nilsson, CEO and President of Tele2; Carla Smits-Nusteling, Chairman of the Board; Georgi Ganev, Chairman of the Nomination Committee
- Only a limited number of guests will be allowed to attend the 2020 Annual General Meeting.
Tele2 encourage all of our shareholders to carefully consider the possibility to attend the 2020 Annual General Meeting by way of a proxy holder and/or vote via remote access by post ahead of the Annual General Meeting.
