Convocation for the annual and extraordinary general meeting of Gimv on June 26th, 2024

Gimv published today the convocation for the annual and extraordinary general meeting to be held on June 26th, 2024 at 10:30 AM at the Crowne Plaza Hotel,

Gerard le Grellelaan 10, 2020 Antwerp.

In addition to the regular agenda items (approval of the remuneration report and financial statements, discharge of directors and auditor and adoption of global budget remuneration for non-executive directors), the shareholders are invited to approve a dividend of 2.60 euro per share (in principle in the form of an optional dividend with a mandate to the board of directors to take the final decision regarding (a) the option to also distribute the dividend in the form of new shares, (b) the time at which the dividend will be made payable, and (c) if applicable, the start and end of the option period as well as the other terms and conditions of the optional dividend).

In addition, shareholders are invited to confirm the co-optation of Mr Filip Dierckx, Mr Robert Van Goethem and Mr Marc Valentiny as new directors nominated by new reference shareholder WorxInvest and to renew the mandate of Mrs Manon Janssen as an independent director for a further period of 4 years.

imageThe change of reference shareholder also entails a revision of the possibility of appointing legal persons as directors. In this context, all directors were offered the possibility of switching from a mandate in personal name to a mandate through a management company, obviously in full respect of the existing terms of the current mandates.

Finally, the shareholders are also invited to an extraordinary general meeting to amend the articles of association in function of the change of reference shareholder and subsequent update on governance, more specifically with regard to the composition of the board of directors (1/3 of the total number of directors nominated by WorxInvest and at least a majority of independent directors) and advisory committees (minimum two members in each committee nominated by WorxInvest and a majority of independent directors in each case).
