Further, Silvia Buchinger is proposed to be elected as a member of the board of directors. In addition to her new role as member of the board of directors, Ms. Buchinger will continue to serve as CHRO on an interim basis until a successor has been identified and appointed and will provide guidance to her successor during a transition period.
▪ In connection with the revision of the Swiss corporate law, a capital band between a lower limit of CHF 55,800,000 and an upper limit of CHF 74,380,000 shall be introduced, instead of the current authorized capital of CHF 5,000,000 which authorized the board of directors to raise the nominal share capital from CHF 61,985,597 to CHF 66,985,597 until 18 May 2024. The board of directors will be authorized to raise or reduce the share capital within the capital band until 23 May 2028.
