Evolva announces AGM agenda

Evolva Holding SA (SIX: EVE) today announces the agenda for its Annual General Meeting of shareholders (AGM), to be held on 23 May 2014 in Basel, Switzerland. The full agenda is available on Evolva’s website under “investors/shareholder information”.

Evolva has decided to implement almost all of the new Swiss corporate governance guidelines of the “Ordinance against Excessive Compensation at Public Corporations” (Swiss abbreviation “Vegüv”) already in 2014. One of its provisions requires listed companies to provide an annual compensation report, starting in 2015. Evolva already did so last year and does so again in 2014. The report is included in the 2013 Annual Report and also available separately via the website. This report will be put to a consultative vote in the upcoming AGM. The compensation levels for management and board will be subject to a binding vote. Shareholders will have the possibility to submit their voting instructions to the Independent Proxy via an electronic system.
