MTG's Annual General Meeting 2021

Due to the continuing coronavirus pandemic, the Board has decided that the Annual General Meeting should be conducted only through postal voting in accordance with temporary legislation. It will not be possible for shareholders to attend the Annual General Meeting in person or by way of a proxy holder. Information on the resolutions adopted by the Annual General Meeting will be disclosed on 18 May 2021, as soon as the outcome of the postal voting has been finally confirmed.

An interview with MTG’s Chairman of the Board David Chance and a presentation by the Chief Executive Officer Maria Redin will be available here from 12 May 2021.

Participation

Shareholders who wish to participate in the Annual General Meeting shall:

  • be recorded in the presentation of the share register prepared by Euroclear Sweden concerning the circumstances on Friday 7 May 2021; and
  • give notice to participate no later than Monday 17 May 2021 by casting their postal vote as instructed under the heading “Postal voting” below, so that the postal vote is received by MTG no later than that day.

To be entitled to participate in the Annual General Meeting, shareholders whose shares are registered in the names of nominees must, in addition to giving notice to participate by casting their postal vote, re-register such shares in their own name so that the shareholder is recorded in the presentation of the share register as of 7 May 2021. Such re-registration may be temporary (”voting rights registration”) and can be requested from the nominee in accordance with the nominee’s procedures in such time in advance as the nominee determines. Voting rights registrations effected no later than the second banking day after 7 May 2021 will be considered in the presentation of the share register.
