Viscom AG: Annual General Meeting postponed due to COVID-19 pandemic

Hanover, 8 May 2020 - Viscom AG (ISIN DE0007846867), the European market leader for automated optical inspection systems in the electronics industry, is postponing its Annual General Meeting, which had been originally planned for 9 June 2020, until 4 August 2020.

Owing to the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Executive Board and the Supervisory Board of Viscom AG of Viscom AG have resolved to postpone this year's Annual General Meeting until 4 August 2020, when it will be held virtually without shareholders or their representatives attending in person, as protecting the health of shareholders, employees and service providers is the Group's top priority. This is also consistent with the current contact restrictions and the resultant ban on large events in Lower Saxony, which is due to remain in effect until at least 31 August 2020.

In accordance with section 1(2) of the German Act Concerning Measures Under the Law of Companies, Cooperative Societies, Associations, Foundations and Commonhold Property to Combat the Effects of the COVID-19 Pandemic (the German COVID-19 Act), full video and sound of the virtual Annual General Meeting will be streamed for registered shareholders and their representatives, shareholders will be able to exercise their voting rights in particular by means of electronic communication (postal vote or electronic participation) or by appointing a proxy, shareholders will be given the chance to ask questions by way of electronic communication and shareholders who have exercised their voting rights will be able to declare objections to resolutions of the Annual General Meeting by electronic communication.

As holding the Annual General Meeting virtually on the basis of the COVID-19 Act requires some modifications in how it will proceed and how shareholders exercise their rights, we ask that our shareholders pay particular attention to the instructions published with the invitation on how they can stream video and sound of the Annual General Meeting, exercise their voting rights and their rights to ask questions and otherwise seek information. The invitation to the 2020 Annual General Meeting of Viscom AG will be published in the Federal Gazette by no later than 26 June 2020.
