The Annual General Meeting of Shareholders will be held exclusively online, i.e. without the physical presence of shareholders or their representatives, as shareholders were warned in the notice of call.
Before going to the office of Ebro Foods, shareholders are urged to make an appointment through the Shareholders’ Office (telephone: +34917245267 / e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org). The Company may be unable to attend any shareholder who turn up without an appointment, in which case they would be given an appointment for an alternative time and date. Should it so deem fit in view of the circumstances, rules in place or medical recommendations given at any time, the Company may suspend the personal delivery of cards at the company’s offices in order to avoid the physical presence of shareholders at those offices. Shareholders will be informed whether this option is available when they contact the Shareholders’ Office to request an appointment.This year there will be no physical delivery of gifts to the shareholders who visit the registered office to exercise their voting or proxy right or those who attend the Annual General Meeting in person (if this is possible). Therefore, gifts will be sent free of charge to all shareholders who so request when they exercise their voting or proxy rights by post or electronically or attend the meeting (in person or online), provided they give the company the necessary contact details. This year, the company offers the possibility of online attendance of the Annual General Meeting on the terms set out in the notice of call and the rules for postal and electronic votes and proxies and online attendance. This notwithstanding , the Company recommends all shareholders wishing to exercise their voting and proxy rights prior to the Annual General Meeting to do so by post, courier service or by the electronic means indicated in the notice of call.
The Annual General Meeting will be streamed live on the company’s website.
JUST AS IN PREVIOUS YEARS, THIS GENERAL MEETING WILL FORESEEABLY BE HELD ON FIRST CALL, AT 11.00 ON 29 JULY 2020.
