SoftwareOne shareholders approve all proposals of the Board of Directors at the 2023 Annual General Meeting
SoftwareOne Holding AG, a leading global software and cloud solutions provider, had all proposals put forward by the Board of Directors approved by its shareholders at today’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) held in Lucerne, Switzerland. A total of 133 shareholders and representatives of shareholders attended the meeting who, together with the independent proxy, represented 67.37 percent of the total share capital with a right to vote.
The shareholders approved the Annual Report (including the Management Report), the Annual Statutory and Consolidated Financial Statements for the financial year 2022 and, in a non-binding (consultative) vote, the Compensation Report for 2022.
A dividend of CHF 0.35 per registered share was approved and will be paid out of non-Swiss capital contribution reserves as from 10 May 2023. The shares will be traded ex-dividend as from 8 May 2023 and the dividend record date is 9 May 2023.
The shareholders voted in favor of granting discharge to the members of the Board of Directors and the members of the Executive Board for the financial year 2022.
The shareholders re-elected Daniel von Stockar, José Alberto Duarte, Timo Ihamuotila, Marie-Pierre Rogers, Isabelle Romy, Adam Warby and Jim Freeman as members of the Board, while Elizabeth Theophille was newly elected to the Board of Directors, each for a one-year term of office until the 2024 AGM. The shareholders elected Adam Warby as new Chairman of the Board of Directors for a one-year term of office until completion of the next AGM. The shareholders re-elected Marie-Pierre Rogers, Adam Warby and Daniel von Stockar and newly elected José Alberto Duarte as members of the Nomination and Compensation Committee, each for a one-year term of office until the 2024 AGM. Peter Kurer did not stand for re-election and hence his term as member of the Board of Directors ended today.
The shareholders re-elected Anwaltskanzlei Keller AG, Zurich, as Independent Proxy and Ernst & Young AG, Zurich, as Auditor for a one-year term of office.
Furthermore, shareholders approved the maximum aggregate compensation of the Board of Directors until the 2024 AGM and the maximum aggregate compensation of the Executive Board for the 2024 financial year.
Finally, shareholders approved the proposed amendments to SoftwareOne Holding AG's Articles of Incorporation, mainly in relation to the alignment with the revised Swiss Corporate Law.
The final results of the AGM are available here on SoftwareOne’s website.
