Bâloise Holding Ltd intends to hold its Annual General Meeting as planned on 24 April 2020. Due to the restrictions on public gatherings imposed by the Swiss Federal Council in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, however, it will not be possible for shareholders to attend the AGM in person. They will be able to cast their votes in writing or electronically via the independent proxy. The voting forms are available for download now at www.baloise.com. They have also been sent out to shareholders today. Shareholders may propose their own motions in writing.
By holding the AGM on the scheduled date, Baloise will be able – with the consent of the shareholders – to close the 2019 financial year and pay out the proposed dividend of CHF 6.40 per share, an increase of 40 centimes per share.
