SoftwareONE publishes agenda for 2022 Annual General Meeting

SoftwareONE Holding AG, a leading global provider of end-to-end software and cloud technology solutions, today published the agenda and the proposals of the Board of Directors for its upcoming Annual General Meeting, which will be held on 5 May 2022 without the physical presence of shareholders.

At SoftwareONE’s forthcoming Annual General Meeting, the Board of Directors proposes, among other items, the approval of a dividend of CHF 0.33 per share, to be paid from non-Swiss capital contribution reserves. The proposal by the Board of Directors mirrors the company’s solid capital position and strong cash generation in 2021, while also reflecting SoftwareONE’s confidence in the strength of its business model.

The Board of Directors proposes the election of Jim Freeman, Chief Business & Product Officer at Zalando, with a proven expertise in product, technology and digital platforms as new independent member of the Board of Directors. It is envisaged that he would become a member of the Audit Committee.

Daniel von Stockar, Peter Kurer, Marie-Pierre Rogers, José Alberto Duarte, Timo Ihamuotila, Isabelle Romy and Adam Warby are standing for re-election as Chairman and members of the Board of Directors, respectively.

René Gilli and Jean-Pierre Saad have each informed the Board of Directors that they will not stand for re-election.

The invitation and full agenda for the 2022 Annual General Meeting is available here on SoftwareONE’s website.
