Based on Art. 6a para. 1b of the Federal Council Ordinance of 16 March on Measures to Combat the Coronavirus (COVID-19), the eighth ordinary general meeting of Zug Estates Holding AG was held without in-person participation by its shareholders. Independent proxies were in attendance representing a total of 91.7% of share capital with voting rights. The shareholders approved all proposals by the board of directors.
