R. STAHL AG postpones its 27th Ordinary Annual General Meeting


Waldenburg, 18 March 2020 – R. STAHL AG postpones its 27th Annual General Meeting previously planned to be held on 28 May 2020 in Künzelsau-Gaisbach. This has just been decided by the Executive Board. The decision is driven by the spreading infections with SARS-CoV-2 (“corona virus“) in Germany. In this situation, the health of employees, shareholders and involved service providers is of utmost priority. For the time being, the state of Baden-Württemberg has banned all events with more than 100 participants until 15 June 2020. The Annual General Meeting is to be scheduled within the statutory period of eight months of the current fiscal year. R. STAHL AG will inform its shareholders and the public in good time about the further planning.
