AGROMINO A/S: Notice convening an extraordinary general meeting of Agromino A/S
The board of directors (the “Board of Directors”) of Agromino A/S, CVR No. 29 80 18 43, (“Agromino” or “Company”) hereby gives notice of an extraordinary general meeting of Agromino to be held on 18 September 2020, at 13:00 pm (CEST) at the office of the law firm Poul Schmith at Vester Farimagsgade 23, 1606 Copenhagen V, Denmark with the following agenda:
1 – Resolution to continue with the planned delisting of the Company and amend article 4.1 of the articles of association accordingly
On 15 July 2020 Agromino published a press release about a planned delisting of the Company’s shares from Nasdaq Stockholm without “downlisting” the shares to another trading platform. As announced in the press release, the Board of Directors intends to apply for a delisting of the Company’s shares no earlier than three months following the date of the press release. Thus, the Board of Directors proposes that the general meeting approves the Board of Directors intention to file for the planned delisting and amend the articles of association accordingly.
It is the Board of Directors opinion that considering the overall market conditions, developments on the main market on which the Company operates (i.e. Ukraine), applicable liquidity requirements as well as costs involved in maintenance of listing, the operational model of the Company as a non-listed company may be more suitable for facing significant challenges which lie ahead of the Company. The reasons for the delisting of Company shares are described in further detail in the press release of 15 July 2020.
2 – Resolution to cancel the authorisation to the Board of Directors to increase the share capital
Considering the characteristics of the authorisation stipulated in article 4d of the articles of association as well as the fact that a large part of the contribution set out in the authorisation has already been performed, the board of directors proposes that the authorisation granted to the board of directors is cancelled and article 4 of the articles of associations is amended accordingly. Proposed updated articles of association are attached as Appendix 2.
