Annual General Meetings
Shareholders’ rights to resolve on company matters are exercised at shareholders’ meetings. An ordinary shareholders’ meeting is to be held yearly within six months following the close of the business year. It is called by the Board of Directors or, if necessary, by the auditors.
Shareholders’ meetings are held at the seat of Cavotec SA (“the Company”) or at such other place as the Board of Directors shall determine. Since the Company is listed in Stockholm, the Board of Directors has the ambition to, as far as possible and as long as in compliance with Swiss rules and regulations and if no public deed issued by a Swiss notary is needed, to hold shareholders’ meetings in Sweden.
The shareholders’ meetings, deviating from the Code, will be held in English and information and material will be available in English only. This is in accordance with an exemption granted by the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority. The minutes from shareholders’ meetings will be published on the Company’s website.
Right to attend shareholders’ meetings
All shareholders who are registered directly in the Company's share register (managed by Euroclear Sweden’s and SIX Switzerland) and who notify the Company of their intention to attend the shareholders’ meeting at the latest by the date specified in the Notice of Meeting, shall be entitled to attend the shareholders’ meeting and vote according to the number of shares they hold. Shareholders may attend shareholders’ meetings in person or through a proxy. Shareholders may usually register for shareholders’ meetings in several different ways, which are described in the Notice of Meeting.
Notice of shareholders’ meetings and shareholder initiatives
Notice of a shareholders’ meeting is given by means of a publication in the Swiss Commercial Gazette or by letter to the shareholders of record as well as through a press release. 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 the shareholders’ meeting must indicate the agenda and the motions.
Cavotec SA's annual shareholders' meeting for the financial year 1 January 2018 – 31 December 2018 was held on Friday, May 10, 2019, at 15:00 CEST at Cavotec’s headquarters, Via G.B. Pioda 14, 6900 Lugano, Switzerland.
