Annual General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting will be held on Tuesday, April 27, 2021.
In view of the Covid-19 pandemic, the Board of Directors has decided that the Annual General Meeting shall be conducted without the physical presence of shareholders, representatives and third parties and that shareholders shall only be entitled to exercise their voting rights by postal voting before the Meeting.
Shareholders who wish to participate in the Meeting by postal voting must:
- be recorded as shareholder in the share register maintained by Euroclear Sweden AB on Monday, April 19, 2021, and
- give notice of their intention to participate by submitting their postal votes so that these are received by Computershare AB not later than Monday, April 26, 2021.
Shareholders whose shares are registered in the name of a nominee must, to be entitled to participate in the Meeting, temporarily have re-registered the shares in their own name so that the shareholder is registered in the share register as of Monday, April 19, 2021. Please note that this procedure also applies with respect to shares held on a bank’s shareholder deposit account and certain investment savings accounts. Request for such voting rights registration shall be made to the nominee, in accordance with the nominee’s routines, at such time in advance as decided by the nominee. Voting rights registration that has been made by the nominee no later than Wednesday, April 21, 2021 will be taken into account in the preparation of the share register.
If a shareholder submits its postal vote through a representative, a written and dated proxy signed by the shareholder must be attached to the postal voting form. If the shareholder is a legal person, a registration certificate or other authorization document must be attached to the form.
Further instructions regarding the process for postal voting will be available in the formal notice convening the Meeting and on the company’s website, home.sandvik.
The Board of Directors proposes that the 2021 Annual General Meeting declare a dividend of SEK 6.50 per share.
The proposed record date is Thursday, April 29, 2021. If the proposal is adopted by the Annual General Meeting, it is expected that dividends will be paid on Tuesday, May 4, 2021. Dividends will be sent to those who on the record date are entered in the share register or on the separate list of assignees, etc. To facilitate the distribution of dividends, shareholders who have changed address should report this change to their bank in sufficient time prior to the record date.
