ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2021

ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2021

BE Group AB's annual general meeting will be held on April 20, 2021.

Due to the coronavirus and to curb the spread of the virus, the board of directors has decided that the annual general meeting should be conducted by way of postal vote pursuant to temporary legislation being in effect in 2021. This means that the annual general meeting will be held without the physical presence of shareholders, representatives or third parties. The shareholders will only be able to exercise their voting rights by postal voting in the manner prescribed below.

Right to attend
A person who wishes to participate in the annual general meeting by postal voting must

  • be listed as a shareholder in the presentation of the share register kept by Euroclear Sweden AB concerning the circumstances on April 12, 2021, and
  • give notice of participation no later than April 19, 2021, by casting its postal vote in accordance with the instructions under the heading “Postal voting” below so that the postal voting form is received by BE Group no later than that day.

In order to be entitled to participate in the annual general meeting, a shareholder whose shares are registered in the name of a nominee must, in addition to giving notice of participation in the annual general meeting by submitting its postal vote, register its shares in its own name so that the shareholder is listed in the presentation of the share register as of, April 12, 2021. Such registration may be temporary (so-called voting rights registration), and request for such voting rights registration shall be made to the nominee in accordance with the nominee’s routines at such a time in advance as decided by the nominee. Voting rights registrations that have been made by the nominee no later than April 14, 2021 will be taken into account in the presentation of the share register.

Postal voting
Shareholders may exercise their voting rights at the annual general meeting only by postal voting in accordance with section 22 of the Act (2020:198) on temporary exceptions to facilitate the execution of general meetings in companies and other associations. A special form must be used for the postal vote. The form is available on the company’s website www.begroup.com. The postal vote form is considered as notice to participate in the annual general meeting.

In order to be considered, the completed and signed form must be received by BE Group no later than, April 19, 2021. The completed and signed form must be sent to by mail to BE Group AB, Attn Jessica Lydevik, Box 225, SE-201 22 Malmö, mark the envelope with "Postal Vote", or by email to postrostning@begroup.com, type “Postal Vote” in the subject line. 

If the shareholder submits its postal vote by proxy, a power of attorney must be attached to the postal voting form. Proxy forms in Swedish and in English are available on the company’s website www.begroup.com and also upon request. A power of attorney is valid (1) year from its issue date or such longer time period as set out in the power of attorney, however not more than (5) years. If the shareholder is a legal person, a registration certificate or other authorization document, not older than one (1) year, must be attached to the form, listing the authorized signatories.

The shareholders may not provide special instructions or conditions to the postal vote. If so, the entire postal vote is invalid. Further instructions and conditions can be found in the postal voting form.
