In accordance with Article 14 of the Articles of Association, notice is hereby given of an extraordi-nary general meeting in SimCorp A/S, Tuesday 26 April 2016, at 8:00 am, Weidekampsgade 16, 2300 Copenhagen S, Denmark. The agenda will be as follows:
At the annual general meeting held on 1 April 2016, the proposal regarding issue of new shares in the name of the holder was adopted by a majority of more than two thirds of both the votes cast and of the share capital represented at the general meeting. Since, however, less than 50 % of the share capital was represented at the general meeting the proposal was not adopted, and the Board of Directors therefore makes the proposal at the extraordinary general meeting.
As a consequence of changes in the Danish Companies Act, the Board of Directors proposes that new shares issued in accordance with the Board’s existing authority to increase the share capital in the future shall not be issued to bearer but in the name of the holder. In consequence hereof, it is proposed to amend Article 4, section 2, of the Articles of Association as follows:
”The new shares shall be registered in the name of the holder in the Company’s Register of Share-holders. The new shares shall be negotiable instruments, and no restrictions shall apply to the transferability of the shares. No shares confer any special rights upon their holder and no share-holders shall be under an obligation to have his shares redeemed in full or in part by the Company or any other party.”
At the annual general meeting held on 1 April 2016, the proposal to authorise the Board of Direc-tors to approve distribution of extraordinary dividends was adopted by a majority of more than two thirds of both the votes cast and of the share capital represented at the general meeting. Since, however, less than 50 % of the share capital was represented at the general meeting the proposal was not adopted, and the Board of Directors therefore makes the proposal at the ex-traordinary general meeting.
The Board of Directors proposes to authorise the Board of Directors, in accordance with sections 182-183 of the Danish Companies Act, to approve distribution of extraordinary dividends to the extent that the Company’s and the group’s financial situation warrants it. The extraordinary divi-dends must be reasonable in relation to the Company’s financial situation, must be in cash and in accordance with the limitations of the Danish Company’s Act. The Board of Directors proposes to insert the authorisation as a new article in the Articles of Association:
“EXTRAORDINARY DIVIDENDS, Article 23: The Board of Directors is authorised to approve dis-tribution of extraordinary dividends.”
Any other business.
