Landis+Gyr publishes Annual Report 2019 and Invitation to AGM 2020
Zug, Switzerland. – May 28, 2020 – Landis+Gyr (LAND.SW) today published its Annual Report 2019 which is available on the company’s website (www.landisgyr.com/investors/results-center/). The report provides comprehensive information about the Group’s business and financial performance, corporate governance and remuneration in financial year 2019 (April 1, 2019 – March 31, 2020).
In addition, Landis+Gyr today issued the invitation to the Annual General Meeting to be held virtually on June 30, 2020 which is available on the company’s website (www.landisgyr.com/investors/annual-general-meeting/). In line with the COVID-19 Ordinance 2 of the Swiss Federal Council the Annual General Meeting will be held without the physical presence of the shareholders and voting rights can only be exercised through the independent proxy.
As communicated on May 6, 2020, the Board of Directors, as a precautionary measure due to the uncertainties surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic and the current business environment, will not propose a dividend to the Annual General Meeting. Rather, the Board has decided to defer the decision on the FY 2019 dividend and intends to revisit the situation in conjunction with the release of the results of the first half year ending September 2020. By taking this measure, Landis+Gyr further strengthens an already robust level of liquidity, adding support to the company's overall financial position in view of the uncertainties stemming from the present crisis. A further announcement will be made at the time of the release of the Group’s first half FY 2020 results on October 28, 2020. The Board of Directors therefore proposes to carry forward the results for the financial year 2019 to the new account.
Also proposed on the meeting agenda are approval items for both conditional and authorized capital, which when combined may not exceed 2,890,894 registered shares (corresponding to a 10% cap). Furthermore, the Group proposes to cancel 342,305 shares bought under the suspended share buyback program through April 30, 2020.
All current members of the Board of Directors will stand for re-election for another one-year term.
