At today’s ordinary Shareholder’s Meeting of HBM Healthcare Investments Ltd the Shareholders approved all proposals submitted by the Board of Directors. A total of about 44% of all shares were represented at the Shareholders’ Meeting.
The Chairman of the Board of Directors, the Members of the Board of Directors as well as the Members of the Compensation Committee were all re-elected for a further term of one year. The Shareholders also approved the proposed compensation to the Board of Directors and to the Management.
Along with the reduction of the share capital by means of cancellation of 80’000 registered shares, the Shareholders also approved a withholding tax-exempt distribution from the reserve from capital brought in of CHF 5.50 per share. The cash payment to Shareholders will be made on 29 June 2018. Until 26 June 2018, the shares will be traded with entitlement for the cash distribution (as from 27 June 2018 without such entitlement, ex-date).
Further, the Shareholders approved an additional withholding tax-exempt cash distribution of CHF 1.50 per share by means of a par value reduction. The cash payment to Shareholders will be made after the expiration of the legal deadlines, presumably on 21 September 2018 (ex-date 19 September 2018).
