In light of the global spread of Covid-19, Barco’s priority is keeping its shareholders, employees and other stakeholders safe. To that end, Barco’s Board of Directors has urged its shareholders to strictly observe the measures, imposed to contain this virus, like the prohibition on gathering and the prohibition on non-essential trips, and not to physically attend the shareholders meetings.
The shareholders have followed the Board of Directors’ request and have given powers of attorney with their voting instructions to the company.
Contrary to other listed companies, Barco will not rely on the Royal Decree nr. 4 to hold the general meetings behind closed doors. Indeed, the Board of Directors foresees the possibility to attend the general meetings remotely with Barco’s weConnect technology. The shareholders will be able to attend the meetings and to ask live questions, just like during an ordinary meeting.
The practical arrangements have been published on Barco’s website: https://www.barco.com/en/about-barco/corporate-governance
