Henkel postpones Annual General Meeting
Due to the spread of the coronavirus, Henkel will not be able to hold its Annual General Meeting on April 20, 2020 at the Düsseldorf Congress Center as planned.
According to the provisions of the German Stock Corporation Act applicable to this Annual General Meeting, it should have been held as a physical event. Due to the regulations enacted by the authorities relating to such events, this will be no longer possible. The health of employees, shareholders and the service providers involved has highest priority for Henkel.
By postponing the event to a later date, Henkel wants to contribute to slowing down the spread of the coronavirus.
As a result of the cancellation of the Annual General Meeting, the resolution on the appropriation of profit for fiscal 2019 and the respective pay out of the dividend are postponed as well.
In consideration of further developments, Henkel will review whether it is possible to hold the Annual General Meeting 2020 within the first eight months of the fiscal year.
Henkel will inform its shareholders and the public in a timely manner about a new date as well as organization and procedure of the Annual General Meeting 2020.
