129. Ordinary Annual meeting
The 129th Annual Shareholders' Meeting will take place on Monday 29 June 2020. However, physical participation will not be possible. Only a statutory agenda will be permitted. One month prior to that date we will publish the invitation in the Swiss daily press and in the "Schweizerisches Handelsamtsblatt" (Swiss Official Gazette of Commerce).
We regret that the current situation concerning COVID-19 does not allow us to organize as planned this year's Annual Shareholders' Meeting at the Schinzenhof conference venue in Horgen.
In accordance with Article 6b of the Swiss government's "Ordinance on Measures to Combat the Coronavirus (COVID-19 Ordinance 2)", the Board of Directors of the Lake Zurich Navigation Company is this year offering shareholders the opportunity to exercise their voting rights exclusively through an independent proxy appointed by the organizer.
The independent proxy will act in accordance with the proxy powers and instructions of the shareholders; these can be submitted in writing. The granting of powers and the issuance of instructions by shareholders is possible up to and including Tuesday, 23 June 2020 (postmark). Physical participation is therefore excluded and no voting cards will be issued.
As an additional agenda item, a general amendment to the statutes will be proposed in relation to the conversion of bearer shares into registered shares.
The invitation, agenda, instruction form and proposed general amendment to the statutes – as well as the 2019 Annual Report – are being sent to all registered shareholders by post.
We thank you for your understanding and continued confidence and trust in the Lake Zurich Navigation Company. It is to be hoped that next year we will be able to welcome you to our Annual Shareholders' Meeting in the more familiar framework to which we have become accustomed. On behalf of the Board of Directors we wish you good health and all the best for the future.
