Ericsson plans to hold its Annual General Meeting of shareholders 2020 as scheduled at 3 p.m. Central European Summer Time on March 31, but will take precautionary measures to ensure the health and safety of shareholders, employees and other stakeholders. Due to the risk of spreading the coronavirus, Ericsson has decided to limit the scope of the meeting and the presence of board members and management will be limited.
There will be no speeches by Ericsson representatives at the meeting and presentations will be kept to a minimum. Speeches will instead be pre-recorded and are planned to be made available at www.ericsson.com before the event.
Shareholders are encouraged to vote by proxy and to follow the meeting via webcast. Shareholders who want to authorize a proxy to vote on their behalf can find relevant templates here.
Attendees, who nonetheless wish to attend in person, are reminded to avoid close contact with other attendees in the common areas, and to spread out in the meeting hall while seated. Cloakrooms will be closed, and all who attend are asked to bring their outerwear into the meeting hall.
