Press news Biocartis Group NV: Invitation to the Extraordinary Shareholders' Meeting

Invitation to the Extraordinary Shareholders’ Meeting

Mechelen, Belgium, 4 September 2020Biocartis Group NV (the ‘Company’ or ‘Biocartis’), an innovative molecular diagnostics company (Euronext Brussels: BCART), has the honor to invite its shareholders, holders of subscription rights, holders of convertible bonds, directors and statutory auditor to a new extraordinary shareholders' meeting that will be held on Friday 25 September 2020 at 9:00 a.m. CEST, at the offices of the Company at Generaal de Wittelaan 11B, 2800 Mechelen, Belgium. The legally required quorum to validly deliberate and vote on the agenda items of the extraordinary shareholders' meeting held on 2 September 2020 was not reached.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is currently envisaged that the measures imposed by the Belgian government to deal with this pandemic, such as the obligation to guarantee a distance of 1.5 meters between each person, may still be in effect as of 25 September 2020, date of the Company's extraordinary shareholders' meeting. These measures are in the interest of the health of individual securities holders, as well as of the employees of the Company and others who are responsible for organizing the shareholders' meeting. It can also not be excluded that the Belgian government will again impose additional measures. We will monitor the situation closely and will disclose all relevant information and measures that have an impact on the shareholders' meeting on the Biocartis website.

In view hereof, the Company recommends that the shareholders that wish to participate in the extraordinary shareholders' meeting make use, as much as practically possible, of the right to vote through voting by mail or by proxy to the chairman of the Board of Directors. Furthermore, it is recommended that holders of securities that wish to exercise their right to ask questions regarding the items on the agenda of the extraordinary shareholders' meeting do so in writing. The modalities of the aforementioned means of participation in the extraordinary shareholders' meeting are set out in the convening notice and in the relevant forms for voting by mail or by proxy.

In order to be admitted to the extraordinary shareholders’ meeting, the holders of securities issued by the Company must comply with Article 7:134 of the Belgian Code of Companies and Associations and the articles of association of the Company, and fulfill the formalities described in the convening notice. The convening notice and other documents relating to the shareholders’ meetings can be consulted on the Company’s website.
