MSAB: Board changes its proposal for distribution of dividends for 2019, and instead proposes that no dividend be distributed.
The Board of Directors of MSAB (publ) has decided to change its proposal to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2020 regarding dividends to shareholders in MSAB (publ) for 2019. An earlier proposal, communicated in the year-end report for 2019, was for the distribution of a dividend in the amount of SEK 0.10 per share. The new proposal is that no dividend should be distributed for 2019.
According to MSAB’s Chairman, Henrik Tjernberg, “MSAB’s financial position is strong but due to the current situation with the ongoing pandemic and the uncertainty surrounding future cash flow, the Board chooses instead to propose to the AGM that maximum liquidity should be retained within the Company.”
MSAB’s AGM will be held 13 May, 2020 at 18.00. The official Notice of the AGM will go out on 13 April, 2020. Because of COVID-19 (the Corona virus), MSAB is prioritising health and safety, and has thus decided to hold the AGM on Company premises, Hornsbruksgatan 28 in Stockholm rather than as earlier planned at Spårvägshallarna in Stockholm, and to keep the meeting as brief as possible. No food will be served. The demonstration and display of the Company’s products normally given in conjunction with the AGM are cancelled. The CEO’s presentation will be filmed separately and published on the Company’s website. Questions for Company management can be sent to email@example.com. To the extent possible, questions will be addressed in the CEO’s presentation on the website. Against the backdrop of recommendations issued by Swedish authorities, all shareholders are encouraged to consider utilising the possibility of voting by mail via a form which will be available on the Company’s website (www.msab.com) rather than physically attending the AGM. The Board has chosen to apply the temporary regulations which come into effect as of 15 April, 2020.
Questions should be addressed to:
