VERAISON welcomes the decision of the Board of Directors of Mikron Holding Ltd. to support the proposal of VERAISON SICAV. According to this proposal, decision rights regarding a potential delisting of Mikron from the stock exchange shall be transferred away from the Board of Directors to the shareholders directly via a shareholder meeting. The Board of Directors thereby confirms its commitment to Mikron as a listed company, and also shows that it takes the interests of shareholders very seriously, especially those of minority shareholders. VERAISON is convinced that this proposal will enjoy the support of the shareholders at the AGM. This in turn will make Mikron the first company in Switzerland to introduce into its Articles of Incorporation this important element of minority shareholder protection.
