The Board of Directors believes this to be appropriate, because delisting would primarily affect shareholders. As announced on March 3, 2016, Veraison SICAV has submitted a request to Mikron Holding AG for inclusion of an item on the agenda at the Annual General Meeting of April 12, 2016. In the request, it proposed that the delisting competence be transferred from the Board of Directors to the Annual General Meeting. The Board of Directors of Mikron Holding AG has added this proposal to the agenda. The invitation and agenda for the upcoming Annual General Meeting will be sent to shareholders of Mikron Holding AG in the next few days. The Board of Directors believes in the future of Mikron as a listed company. Since delisting would primarily affect shareholders, it considers it appropriate to transfer the delisting competence to the Annual General Meeting and, by subjecting it to a higher decision-making quorum, to introduce an element of minority protection.
