Annual Shareholders’ Meetings in 2022

Q&As for listed companies

The coronavirus outbreak has had an important impact on the organisation of Annual Shareholders’ Meetings (ASMs). In 2021, many companies opted for a hybrid meeting or a meeting behind closed doors, with or without a webcast retransmission.

With the further relaxation of the COVID-19 restrictions on (large) meetings, most of the exceptional rules and measures of the past two years are no longer available for the 2022 season.

This note, prepared together with the VBO-FEB, provides an overview of the modalities available for ASMs this year and an answer to recurring questions.
