Berlin, 2 September 2020 

The Annual General Meeting of Francotyp-Postalia Holding AG (FP), experts in secure mailing business and secure digital communication processes, will be held as a virtual Annual General Meeting without the physical presence of shareholders or their authorised representatives in light of the renewed growing uncertainty regarding stricter contact restrictions on account of rising COVID-19 infections. The Annual General Meeting is scheduled for 29 September 2020 at 10:00 a.m.

FP’s priority is the safety and health of all employees and shareholders. FP has been monitoring the situation closely over the last few weeks and, given that the situation is again worsening, sees a virtual Annual General Meeting as the only safe option. This decision has been made on the basis of the German Act to Mitigate the Consequences of the COVID-19 Pandemic Under Civil, Insolvency and Criminal Procedure Law of 27 March 2020.

The Annual General Meeting will be broadcast live in audio and video format for duly registered shareholders and their authorised representatives via the restricted access AGM portal on the company’s website at https://www.fp-francotyp.com/annual-shareholder-meeting. Shareholders can exercise their voting rights either via the restricted access AGM portal, which will also be available on the day of the Annual General Meeting, or by post, fax or e-mail up to (and including) the day prior to the Annual General Meeting.

For additional information on the event, please see the company’s invitation to the Annual General Meeting that has been published online at https://www.fp-francotyp.com/annual-shareholder-meeting and in the Federal Gazette.
