Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting held in a closed session
In compliance with recent French legislation related to the pandemic situation and per the recommendations of the French AMF (Autorité des Marchés Financiers or AMF), SpineGuard announces that its Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting will take place on September 23, 2021 at 10:00 am CEST in a closed virtual session. It is hereby reminded that AMF strongly encourages the shareholders to vote, such right being a fundamental prerogative of each shareholder.
Following the lack of quorum at the two previous Extraordinary Shareholders Meetings on June 9 and 30 2021, the Company, on July 23, 2021, introduced a motion at the Commercial Court asking for the appointment of a trustee in order to obtain the requested quorum and cast neutral votes at the shareholder’s meeting. The motion was resolved and, Selarl Ajilink, Labis, Cabooter 70 avenue du Général de Gaulle 94000 Créteil France represented by Maître Jérôme Cabooter, was appointed. One of the resolutions of the Extraordinary Shareholder’s Meeting aims at adjusting the requested quorums to the minimum required by law vs. the existing statutory ones of the Company.
