Annual General Meeting of Topdanmark – 2 April 2020

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) was held in accordance with the published agenda, and the Annual Report, including the revised proposal submitted by the Board of Directors for the appropriation of the result for the financial year was adopted.

The AGM adopted the proposal submitted by the Board of Directors for distribution of dividend of DKK 765 million, corresponding to DKK 8.5 per share.

The AGM adopted the proposal submitted by the Board of Directors to include an item regarding an indicative ballot over the remuneration report on the standard agenda of the Articles of Association.

Furthermore, the AGM adopted the proposal submitted by the Board of Directors to maintain the Board of Directors’ ordinary basic remuneration for the financial year 2020 of DKK 385,000.

A proposal had been submitted by one of Topdanmark’s shareholders, Thomas Meinert Larsen, in which he proposes that the annual general meeting recommends that the Board of Directors annually publishes a statement for the exercise of active ownership in coal, oil and gas companies for the purpose of ensuring that these fossil companies stop misinforming about the climate and stop performing lobbyism counteracting the Paris Agreement on ensuring below 1.5 degrees or maximum 2 degrees of global warming. The Board of Directors is further recommended to dispose of shares and bonds in coal, oil and gas companies where the active ownership does not lead to a cessation of such activities by the end of 2022. Thomas Meinert Larsen’s proposal was not adopted.
