Notice of the Annual General Meeting 2020

Information regarding Saab Annual General Meeting due to COVID-19

Due to the coronavirus disease COVID-19, Saab has decided to take a number of precautionary measures to reduce the risk of spreading the virus.

Saab cares about the health and safety of our shareholders, as well as maintaining their shareholder rights. Saab also has a responsibility towards our shareholders and employees to minimise the spread of the coronavirus.
In connection with Saab’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) that will take place Wednesday 1st of April 2020, at 16.00 (CET), City Conference Centre, Folkets hus, Barnhusgatan 12-14, Stockholm, the following actions will be taken:
  • The registration will not start until 15.00 (CET).
  • No food or drinks will be offered before the AGM.
  • No product exhibition present at the AGM.
  • The provided bus transportation to the AGM in Stockholm is cancelled.
  • Saab will propose to the AGM to open up for Saab's shareholders to be able to follow the AGM via the company's website to enable for those who do not personally attend to follow the AGM.
To further reduce the risk of spreading the disease, Saab is encouraging all persons with symptoms of infection, persons who have been in an area with high risk of infection, or persons with a close relative who has been infected by the COVID-19 disease, to stay at home and participate at the AGM through a proxyholder.
For any shareholders who worry about the disease or belong to a high risk group, there is a possibility to participate in the AGM by appointing a proxy holder who can vote on their behalf so that shareholders do not need to be present at the AGM personally. Shareholders who want to authorise a proxy holder can find the relevant documents below.

Saab has been informed that Euroclear Sweden free of charge is providing the opportunity for shareholders who are private individuals and who do not wish to attend the meeting in person, to appoint a proxy from Euroclear Sweden to vote in accordance with voting instructions from the shareholder. For more information on this see www.euroclearproxy.se. Euroclear Sweden does not act on Saab's behalf and does not provide services to Saab in this regard, but Saab welcomes this initiative and believes that under current circumstances it is a good alternative for shareholders that do not wish to personally attend the AGM.

For up-to-date information on risk areas and recommendations on the COVID-19 disease, Saab refers readers to the Swedish Public Health Authority. https://www.folkhalsomyndigheten.se/the-public-health-agency-of-sweden/
