PostNL provides update on the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders 2020 due to coronavirus outbreak

17 March 2020 – The Hague – In light of the evolving coronavirus outbreak, PostNL is providing an update on its upcoming Annual Meeting of Shareholders (AGM), scheduled to be held on 14 April 2020 in The Hague, in the Netherlands.

To mitigate potential health risks, PostNL kindly makes the unusual request to its shareholders not to attend the meeting in person, and to make use of the option to exercise their voting rights by way of electronic or written proxy. PostNL has extended the possibility to grant a written or electronic proxy. Proxy forms and/or the electronic proxy must be received at the latest by Sunday 12 April 2020 at 17:00 CET. Please note that your intermediary might stipulate a different deadline. Shareholders are referred to PostNL’s original convocation for more details on how to exercise their voting rights. In order to enable shareholder viewing, the AGM will be made public via video webcasting.

Unfortunately, PostNL considers it necessary to cancel all social gatherings surrounding the meeting, and will not be providing lunch or a post-meeting reception. Given the measures imposed by the Dutch government, is has been decided that only a limited number of members of the Supervisory Board may physically attend. The members of the Supervisory Board and Board of Management present during the meeting will not be available for social interaction other than at the AGM itself. We are monitoring the situation, and are bound by any further measures imposed by the Dutch government.
