Due to the extraordinary situation as a result of Covid-19, the meeting will be held in a different way than usually. To reduce the risk of spreading the new coronavirus and having regard to the authorities’ regulations and advice on avoiding public gatherings, the meeting will be carried out through advance voting (postal voting) pursuant to temporary legislation. No meeting with the possibility to attend in person or to be represented by a proxy will take place, i.e. the meeting will be held without physical presence.
