ALMA MEDIA HAS BEEN NOTIFIED BY SHAREHOLDERS REPRESENTING A MAJORITY OF THE COMPANY’S SHARES THAT THEY SUPPORT THE PROPOSALS OF THE SHAREHOLDERS’ NOMINATION COMMITTEE AND THE BOARD OF DIRECTORS TO THE AGM TO BE HELD ON 29 APRIL 2020
Alma Media Corporation’s Annual General Meeting will be held at 12:00 noon on Wednesday, 29 April 2020, at Alma Media’s head office at Alvar Aallon katu 3 C, 00100 Helsinki, Finland.
Due to the coronavirus outbreak, the Annual General Meeting can only be held if the number of participants is low enough to allow compliance with the guidelines issued by the Finnish authorities.
To ensure the decision-making process and to shorten the length of the meeting, Alma Media has received notice from the shareholders representing a majority of all the shares in the company that they support the proposals of the Shareholders’ Nomination Committee and Board of Directors to the Annual General Meeting, and that they will participate in the AGM by means of proxy documents instead of attending the meeting in person.
Alma Media’s Board of Directors takes the coronavirus situation very seriously and, in the interests of safety, urges shareholders to avoid attending the AGM in person. Instead, shareholders are urged to watch the AGM online and to exercise their voting rights by using the proxy service offered by the company or by voting in advance.
Information on the AGM, instructions for issuing proxy documents and further information on the meeting arrangements are available online at https://www.almamedia.fi/en/investors/governance/general-meeting/2020
