RWE reschedules AGM as fully virtual event for 26 June 2020

(PresseBox) ( Essen, )
RWE AG will hold a completely virtual AGM this year. Executive Board and Supervisory Board decided to apply a new regulation recently issued in Germany against the backdrop of the global spread of the coronavirus pandemic. The event that originally has been planned for 28 April 2020 will now be held as a virtual AGM on 26 June 2020, starting at 10:00 am (CEST). "We put highest priority on the health, safety and wellbeing of our shareholders and guests as well as of our employees  and service providers preparing and facilitating the AGM. Therefore, we welcome the possibility the new regulation provides to hold an AGM in a virtual format in this exceptional situation. We can thus refrain from holding a physical attendance event. As usual, our shareholders will be able to make full use of their voting rights and ask questions," says RWE AG CEO Rolf Martin Schmitz.

The invitation to the virtual AGM will be published on 20 May 2020 compliant to the legally required timeframes. The entire event will be broadcasted live on the company's website. The agenda will remain unchanged and include the joint proposal by the Supervisory Board and the Executive Board to pay a dividend of 0.80 euros per share for fiscal 2019.

Shareholders can submit questions regarding the agenda until two days prior to the AGM. After on-time registration to the AGM, shareholders can make use of their voting rights per postal vote in advance or by authorising a voting proxy of the company. Both options can also be exercised online during the AGM. Further details will be included in the invitation.
