Zurich, April 21, 2021 - All motions of the Board of Directors were approved by a large majority at the Annual General Meeting of Conzzeta AG on April 21, 2021. In total, 88.0% of the votes were represented.
The Annual General Meeting of Conzzeta AG on April 21, 2021 was held without the physical presence of the shareholders due to compliance with the Federal Council's regulations on measures to combat the coronavirus. Instead, the shareholders were represented by the independent proxy.
The shareholders approved a dividend of CHF 124.2 million, in the amount of CHF 60.00 per class A registered share and CHF 12.00 per class B registered share. The dividend will be paid on April 27, 2021.
The shareholders confirmed Ernst Bärtschi as Chairman and the members of the Board of Directors and the Human Resources Committee who were proposed for re-election. Heinz O. Baumgartner was elected as a new member of the Board of Directors and the Human Resources Committee.
In particular, the shareholders approved the change of name from Conzzeta AG to Bystronic AG. This meets the conditions for trading of the company's listed registered shares on the SIX Swiss Stock Exchange under the new ticker symbol BYS from the beginning of May 2021, as previously announced.
The Annual General Meeting also approved other items, including the Compensation Report 2020, the compensation to be paid to the Board of Directors for the period of office until the Annual General Meeting 2022, and the compensation for the Executive Committee for the financial year 2022.
