Shareholders vote by Proxy at re-schedulded OGM and approve Dividend Payment
Market expansion services provider (and speciality chemicals and ingredients distributor) DKSH AG (Zurich, Switzerland) yesterday held its Ordinary General Meeting. Shareholders approved all motions by a large majority, including distribution of a dividend of CHF 1.90 per share and the election of Marco Gadola as Chairman of the Board of Directors. Due to the restrictions triggered by the COVID-19 pandemic, the shareholders could only vote by independent proxy. DKSH said 84.2 percent of the total share capital were represented that way. The meeting had been re-scheduled from its earlier, original date in mid-March due to restrictions imposed by the Swiss Federal Government at the time.
The company also said it had recorded “solid results in the first four months of 2020 due to its resilient business model”, but did not elaborate on details. As it was not possible to assess the potential impact of COVID-19 on the busines, the full-year 2020 outlook was withdrawn. DKSH plans to report its half-year results on 15. July and will hold a Capital Markets on 21. September.
