STRATEC POSTPONES 2020 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
Birkenfeld, April 17, 2020
Given the latest developments concerning the spread of coronavirus (SARS-CoV-2), STRATEC SE is postponing its Annual General Meeting, which was originally scheduled to take place in Pforzheim on May 20, 2020, to June 8, 2020.
To protect the health of all involved, the company's management has also decided to hold this year's Annual General Meeting without shareholders or their authorized representatives being physically present. The basis for this kind of virtual Annual General Meeting (online AGM) is provided by the legislation enacted in March 2020 to mitigate the effects of the COVID 19 pandemic on civil law, insolvency law, and criminal law.
As already communicated on April 2, 2020, the Board of Management and the Supervisory Board of STRATEC plan to propose a dividend payment of € 0.84 per share for the 2019 financial year (previous year: € 0.82 per share) for approval by the Annual General Meeting. Subject to approval by shareholders, this would mark the sixteenth consecutive rise in STRATEC's dividend since payment of the first dividend in 2004.
The partners market the systems, software and consumables, in general together with their own reagents, as system solutions to laboratories, blood banks and research institutes around the world. STRATEC develops its products on the basis of its own patented technologies.
Shares in the company (ISIN: DE000STRA555) are traded in the Prime Standard segment of the Frankfurt Stock Exchange.
