The Danish Government’s recommendations and rules in relation to the Coronavirus pandemic, including the temporary ban on gatherings of more than 10 people, could naturally have consequences on the company’s forthcoming annual general meeting. The Board of Directors has decided to convene the annual general meeting on Tuesday, 23 June 2020.

Instead, the shareholders are encouraged to cast their vote by either postal vote or proxy. Shareholders are furthermore encouraged to ask questions in writing prior to the general meeting as such questions will be answered at the general meeting.

Shareholders are hereby informed that restrictions may apply to the access to the premises where the general meeting is to be held; these restrictions are based on their recent travel history, quarantine and/or signs of disease and may prevent shareholders from attending the meeting. If, contrary to our expectations, more than 10 shareholders, or another number of persons as regards the rules in force on the date of the general meeting, want to attend the general meeting in person, this may have an impact on the time and manner in which the general meeting is to be held.
