The Board of Directors of Burkhalter Holding Ltd presented the figures for the 2017 financial year to the 344 shareholders entitled to vote (equating to 3,578,294 registered shares or 59.66% of the issued share capital) who attended today’s Annual Shareholders’ Meeting in Zurich. By a clear majority, the shareholders approved the distribution of a dividend of CHF 5.00 per share and the creation of authorised capital of a maximum of 350,000 registered shares as well as all other motions put forward by the Board of Directors.
