As a consequence of the COVID-19 virus and the Danish government’s recommendations and prohibitions, including the present prohibition on assemblies exceeding 10 persons, we are taking certain precautions in order to protect our shareholders and the Company. Consequently, the Board of Directors has decided that the usual serving of drinks and food is cancelled, as well as there will be no shareholder gifts this year.
