Shareholder meetings

Notice of shareholder meetings is given by means of a publication in the Swiss Commercial Gazette or by letter to the shareholders on record. In addition, a press release can be issued. Between the day of the publication, or the mailing of the notice and the day of the meeting, there must be a time period of not less than 20 calendar days. The notice of shareholder meetings must indicate the agenda and the motions. The notice will also be published on this website.

 

Stating the purpose of the meeting and the agenda to be submitted, one or more shareholders representing at least 10% of the share capital may request the board of directors, in writing, to call an extraordinary shareholders' meeting. In such case, the board of directors must call a shareholders' meeting within due time.
