General meetings

The general meeting is Topdanmark's supreme decision-making vehicle. If requested, about four weeks before the Annual General Meeting those shareholders registered by name are invited by letter to attend the meeting. The Annual General Meeting is convened in accordance with the provisions of the Danish Companies Act with a notice of between three and five weeks.

They are all entitled to attend and vote at general meetings. Shareholders who are not able to attend general meetings can vote by proxy or postal vote for or against each item of the agenda. The proxy / postal vote is only valid for one general meeting.

Shareholders may grant their electronic proxies and votes by letter on Topdanmark’s investor portal. Paper proxy forms and votes by letter forms can be downloaded from the Company's website.

Shareholders can, by e-mail or ordinary letter, send questions to be answered at general meetings.

Topdanmark has only one class of shares and each share entitles the holder to one vote.

Decisions at general meetings are made by a simple majority of votes unless a special majority or representation is required by the Danish Companies Act or the Articles of Association. The Articles of Association provide that decisions on the alteration of the Articles of Association are only valid if adopted by the affirmative vote of not less than two thirds of the votes cast as well as of the capital represented at the general meeting. The Articles of Association provide no restrictions on voting rights.

The AGM is transmitted live via a webcast.
