Agenda item from VERAISON for the Annual General Meeting of Orell-Füssli Holding AG

Agenda item for the Annual General Meeting of Orell-Füssli Holding AG from VERAISON for the purpose of neutrality of treatment of all shareholders

VERAISON SICAV submitted a constructive agenda item to Orell Füssli Holding AG for the Annual General Meeting on May 8, 2018. In it, VERAISON SICAV requests to increase the threshold for the obligation to submit a mandatory offer to be raised to 34% for all shareholders of Orell-Füssli Holding AG (“opting up”).

The introduction of an opting-up of 34% ensures the neutrality of treatment of all shareholders in the Articles of Association. This gives Orell Füssli more independence and strengthens the company’s capital market capability.

VERAISON SICAV regrets that the Board of Directors rejects this shareholder resolution, as VERAISON SICAV is convinced of the importance of this resolution for all minority shareholders.
