General meeting of shareholders

The Company’s highest corporate body is the General Meeting of Shareholders.

X5 Group is required to hold a General Meeting of Shareholders within six months after the end of the financial year, among other things, to adopt the financial statements, to decide on any proposal concerning profit allocation and to discharge the members of the Management Board and Supervisory Board from their responsibility for the performance of their respective duties for the previous financial year.

Extraordinary meetings will be held as often as the Management Board or the Supervisory Board deems necessary.  In addition, shareholders and holders of depositary receipts of shares jointly representing 10% of the outstanding share capital may request the Management Board and the Supervisory Board that a General Meeting of Shareholders be held, stating their proposed agenda in detail.
