BERNEXPO HOLDING AG AGM

At the 69th annual general meeting of BERNEXPO HOLDING AG, a broad majority of the shareholders accepted all the proposals put forth by the Board of Directors. Due to the ban on events that has been imposed in response to the coronavirus crisis, the meeting was held without the physical attendance of the shareholders. Voting rights were exercised by means of written instructions to an independent proxy. The shareholders approved the management report and the annual financial statements, and also confirmed the previous members of the Board of Directors in office. Sandra von May-Granelli was elected as a new member of the Board of Directors. She will succeed Urs Berger, who handed in his resignation for reasons of age at the 69th general meeting. Given the prevailing uncertainty as the result of the coronavirus crisis, the Board of Directors will waive the originally planned dividend payment. With their clear approval for the changes to the bylaws of BERNEXPO HOLDING AG, the shareholders also enabled the switch from a holding structure to a parent company structure.
