The shareholders of Solid Försäkringsaktiebolag (publ) are hereby invited to the Annual General Meeting (AGM) on Thursday, 28 April 2022.
Due to coronavirus, the Board has resolved that the Annual General Meeting is to be held without the physical presence of shareholders, proxies, or external parties and that the exercise of voting rights may only take place via post before the Meeting.
Information about the Annual General Meeting’s resolutions will be published on 28 April 2022 as soon as the outcome of the postal voting has been finalised.
Shareholders who wish to attend the Annual General Meeting shall
- be entered in the share register maintained by Euroclear Sweden AB (“Euroclear”) on Wednesday 20 April 2022 (the “Record Date”), and
- give notice of their attendance by submitting their postal vote according to the instructions under the heading “Postal voting” below in such a way that Euroclear Sweden AB has received the postal vote no later than Wednesday, 27 April 2022.

Voting rights that have been requested by shareholders in such a time that registration has been completed by the nominee by Friday 22 April 2022 at the latest will be taken into account in the preparation of the share register as per the Record Date.
