Annual General Meeting 2021
The Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Axfood AB will be held on 24 March 2021. In view of the continuing coronavirus pandemic, the AGM will be conducted in accordance with a postal voting procedure. This means that shareholders will not physically attend the meeting. Participation will instead be conducted by means of the shareholders postal voting and submitting any questions in advance.
Shareholders who wish to participate in the proceedings of the Annual General Meeting by postal voting must (1) be registered in the register of shareholders maintained by Euroclear Sweden AB as per Tuesday, 16 March 2021, and (2) notify the Company by submitting their postal votes in accordance with the instructions under the heading "Postal votes" in the notice to the AGM so that their postal votes have been received by Euroclear Sweden AB by not later than Tuesday, 23 March 2021. Note that notification to participate in the Annual General Meeting may only be done through postal voting.
Voting rights registration
In order to be entitled to participate in the Annual General Meeting, a shareholder who has had his shares registered in the name of a nominee must, in addition to notifying participation in the Annual General Meeting by casting his postal vote, have the shares registered in his own name in the register of shareholders on Tuesday, 16 March 2021 (so called voting rights registration). Such registration may be temporary (so-called voting rights registration). The registration is requested from the nominee, in accordance with the nominee's routines, at such time in advance as the nominee determines. Voting rights registrations made by the nominee no later than Thursday, March 18, 2021 will be taken into account in the production of the share register.
The Board of Directors has decided that shareholders may exercise their voting rights at the AGM only by voting in advance, so-called postal voting, pursuant to § 22 of the Act on Temporary Exceptions to Facilitate the Conducting of Company and Association General Meetings (Lagen (2020:198) om tillfälliga undantag för att underlätta genomförandet av bolags- och föreningsstämmor). Postal voting will be possible through Tuesday, 23 March 2021. A special form shall be used for postal voting. Further instructions and conditions are provided on the early voting form.
If a shareholder votes in advance via a representative, a written and dated proxy form, signed by the shareholder, must be attached to the advance voting form. Proxy forms can be downloaded from below. If the shareholder is a legal entity, a certificate of registration or other authorization document must be attached to the advance voting form.
The Board of Directors and the President and CEO shall, if any shareholder requests it and the Board finds that it can be done without material harm to the Company, provide disclosures about conditions that could have an impact on the assessment of an item of business on the agenda, conditions that could have an impact on the assessment of the Company’s or a subsidiary’s financial situation, and the Company’s relation to another Group company. Shareholders who wish to ask questions can do so by either sending their questions via email (see link below) or via post to Axfood AB (publ), Attn.: Investor Relations, SE- 107 69 Stockholm, Sweden. Questions from shareholders must be received by Axfood not later than Sunday, 14 March 2021 and will be responded to by not later than Friday, 19 March 2021.
