Annual General Meeting Archive
The situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) remains uncertain and therefore unfortunately once more it does not allow us to hold the Annual General Meeting (AGM) in the conventional way.
In accordance with the Swiss Federal Council’s COVID-19 Ordinance 3, the Board of Directors of Basilea Pharmaceutica Ltd. has decided to hold the 2022 AGM without the physical presence of shareholders. The Board of Directors has taken this decision with great regret, but it considers this measure necessary to protect the health of shareholders and everyone involved in the AGM.
Accordingly, shareholders can exercise their shareholder rights via the Independent Proxy only. Detailed information as to how to give voting instructions to the Independent Proxy (in writing or electronically through the e-voting platform) can be found in the “Organizational Notes” included in the invitation, which is made available for download below. For additional information, please also see the shareholder letter, which is availble for download below.
