This means that, under the Management Board’s decision, shareholders won’t be physically present at the Annual General Meeting of voestalpine AG on July 1, 2020, to protect their health (with the exception the special proxy holders under Sec. 3 para. 4 COVID-19-GesV).
The Management Board asks for the shareholders’ understanding that they cannot attend the Annual General Meeting on July 1, 2020, in person.
The Annual General Meeting will be transmitted on the Internet in real time in audiovisual format. It is not necessary to register or login to watch the Annual General Meeting. All Company shareholders can watch the Annual General Meeting as a virtual Annual General Meeting on the Internet from 10:00 a.m. on July 1, 2020, at www.voestalpine.com using the appropriate technical aids.
