The shareholders of Burkhalter Holding AG adopted all the motions proposed by the Board of Directors at the Annual Shareholders' Meeting held today. As well as the distribution of a dividend of CHF 2.40 per share gross, which is set to be paid out on 31 May 2021, they also approved the election of Nina Remmers to the Board of Directors.
As was announced in the media release of 12 April 2021, today's Burkhalter Holding AG Shareholders' Meeting was held without the shareholders present. Due to the coronavirus, voting could only take place by way of an independent proxy, representing 1 857 absent shareholders entitled to vote (= 4 040 509 registered shares or 67.36 % of the issued share capital). By a clear majority, the shareholders approved the distribution of the dividend and all other motions put forward by the Board of Directors.
This included accepting the Board of Directors' proposal of appointing Nina Remmers, an expert in change management and communication, to the Board of Directors. Nina Remmers holds dual Swiss-German citizenship and is an expert in change management and communication. She has many years of experience as a communications expert and has been Managing Director of Bernd Remmers Consultants AG since 2016, where her role involves supporting companies with large-scale change projects.
