Corona pandemic - Important note on the Annual General Meeting:
On March 16, 2020, the Federal Council classified the situation in Switzerland as an “exceptional situation” and further tightened measures to protect the population. According to COVID 19 regulation 2 and amendment of March 16, 2020, it is prohibited to hold public or private events, including general meetings of companies. This ban applies for the time being until further notice; a date for the lifting of this ban on assembly is currently not available.
The Board of Directors of Swiss Estates AG reserves the right to the Annual General Meeting for the 2019 financial year, based on Article 6a (1) of Regulation 2 on measures to combat the coronavirus (COVID 19 regulation / as of March 16, 2020) To exclude physical participation of shareholders. If the aforementioned ban on assembly was still in force at the time of the invitation to the Annual General Meeting for the 2019 financial year, then it would apply that the participants in the Annual General Meeting can only exercise their rights indirectly. For this purpose, the written way, the electronic form or the instructions of the independent proxy Mr. Oscar Neira, Kleindorfstrasse 62, 8707 Uetikon am See would be possible for the votes.
