Björn Borg AB’s Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday 18 May 2021.
Due to the ongoing pandemic, the board of directors has resolved that the annual general meeting is to be held without the physical presence of shareholders, proxies or external parties and that the exercise of voting rights may only take place via post before the meeting.
Information about the general meeting’s resolutions will be published on 18 May 2021 as soon as the outcome of the postal voting has been finalized.
Shareholders who wish to attend the meeting must firstly, be listed in the shareholders’ register maintained by Euroclear Sweden AB on Friday 7 May 2021 (the “Record Date”), and secondly, give notice of their intention to attend by submitting their postal vote according to the instructions under the heading “Postal voting” below in such a way that the company (through Computershare AB) has received the postal vote no later than Monday 17 May 2021.
Please note that notice of attendance at the annual general meeting can only be made using postal voting.
Shareholders who have nominee-registered shares through the bank or another nominee, for example shares in a custody account, must – aside from giving notice by submitting their postal vote – request that the shares are temporarily re-registered in their own name so that the shareholder is entered in the share register maintained by Euroclear Sweden AB as per the Record Date of 7 May 2021. Such registration may be temporary (so-called voting right registration) and may be requested from the nominee in accordance with the nominee’s procedures at a time in advance as determined by the nominee.
Voting rights that have been requested by shareholders in such a time that registration has been completed by the nominee by 11 May 2021 at the latest will be taken into account in the preparation of the share register as per the Record Date.
Shareholders may only exercise their voting rights by postal voting. The special form below is to be used for postal voting. The postal voting form also applies as notice of attendance to the annual general meeting. Completed and signed postal voting forms may be sent to by mail to Computershare AB “Björn Borg Annual General Meeting”, Box 5267, SE-102 46 Stockholm, Sweden or by e-mail to email@example.com. Completed forms must have been received by the company through Computershare AB not later than Monday 17 May 2021.
Shareholders who are natural persons can also cast their postal vote electronically, not later than 17 May 2021, by verifying their identity using BankID on the following link https://scrive.com/t/9222115557444906105/5612da6d2bb6fdb4.
Shareholders may not submit additional instructions other than by selecting one of the alternatives provided on the form. If the shareholder has included special instructions or terms on the form, or altered or made additions to the printed text, the postal vote will be rendered invalid. Further information and conditions can be found on the postal voting form.
Powers of attorney etc.
If the shareholder is postal voting through a proxy, a written and dated power of attorney signed by the shareholder must be attached to the postal voting form. A template proxy form is available below. If the shareholder is a legal entity, a registration certification or an equivalent authorization document must be submitted along with the postal voting form.
