Precautionary measures to reduce risks of infectivity

A priority for HMS is consideration for the company’s employees and shareholders and for their opportunity to exercise their rights at the Annual General Meeting.

 In light of the decision by the Public Health Agency of Sweden to raise the risk level for infectivity relating to the new coronavirus in Sweden, HMS has decided to take certain precautions in relation to the Annual General sMeeting on 23 April 2020. The aim is to reduce the risk of infectivity by holding a short and efficient meeting with limited interaction, by taking among other things the following measures:
 

  • Registration will not begin until 10:00 a.m.
  • No food and beverages will be served, and no giveaways will be offered
  • The company’s CEO will not give his customary presentation at the Meeting, but will be available for questions, during the day, a recorded speech will be published on the company's website
  • The number of people attending who are not shareholders will be limited
  • The duration of the Meeting will be minimized without infringing on the rights of the shareholders


Any shareholders displaying symptoms of illness, who have recently travelled to a risk area, or who are considered to be part of a risk group, are requested to refrain from attending the meeting, and to instead vote via proxy. Proxy forms are available on the company’s website www.hms-networks.com.


HMS is closely monitoring the development of events and will, if necessary, post updated information on the website prior to the Annual General Meeting.
