Sanoma changes the planned date of its Annual General Meeting 2021 to 13 April 2021

Sanoma Corporation changes the planned date of its Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2021. The AGM 2021 is planned to be held on Tuesday 13 April 2021 instead of the earlier announced date 25 March 2021. Sanoma plans to arrange the meeting under temporary legislation approved by the Finnish Parliament on 3 October 2020, according to which the AGM would be held without the presence of shareholders and their proxy representatives. Shareholders or their proxy representatives would participate in the AGM and use shareholder rights by voting, making counter-proposals and asking questions only in advance.

The Board of Directors will summon the AGM and decide on applying the temporary legislation at a later date. A shareholder may request that a matter falling under the authority of the General Meeting of Shareholders shall be placed on the agenda of the AGM. To this effect, a written request should be sent to the Board of Directors on Wednesday, 13 January 2021 at the latest.  

Sanoma’s Financial Statements and Directors’ Report for 2020 will be published during week 10, starting on 8 March.

Publication dates for other financial information remain unchanged being:
