Annual General Meeting 2021:  Shareholders support the Board of Directors' strategic expansion plan 
04-May-2021 / 17:45 CET/CEST 
Release of an ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 KR 
The issuer is solely responsible for the content of this announcement. 
  . In line with the measures taken by the Swiss Federal Council to combat the coronavirus, the 21st Annual General 
    Meeting of Meyer Burger Technology Ltd (SIX Swiss Exchange: MBTN) was held today without physical presence of the 
    shareholders on site at the company's headquarters in Thun 
Through the independent proxy, 1'090'249'228 registered shares were represented, corresponding to approximately 43.3% 
of the share capital entered in the company's register. 
At today's Annual General Meeting in Thun, the shareholders of Meyer Burger Technology Ltd approved all but one of the 
motions proposed by the Board of Directors: 
The General Meeting approved the management report, the annual financial statements, and the consolidated financial 
statements for the 2020 financial year. The 2020 remuneration report was also approved in a consultative vote. 
The Annual General Meeting approved the use of the balance sheet result and granted discharge to the members of the 
Board of Directors and the Executive Board for the 2020 financial year. 
The existing members of the Board of Directors Franz Richter and Andreas R. Herzog and Mark Kerekes were re-elected by 
the Annual General Meeting. The shareholders also elected attorney Urs Schenker as a new member of the Board of 
Directors. Franz Richter was elected Chairman of the Board of Directors in a separate vote, and Andreas R. Herzog and 
Urs Schenker were elected to the Nomination and Compensation Committee. 
PricewaterhouseCoopers AG, Bern, were re-elected as auditors for a further year and André Weber was re-elected as the 
Company's independent proxy. 
The Annual General Meeting agreed to redefine the approval period for the remuneration of the Board of Directors for 
the period from the ordinary Annual General Meeting to the ordinary Annual General Meeting of the following year and to 
amend the Articles of Association accordingly. Likewise, the maximum total amount of compensation of the Board of 
Directors and the Executive Committee for the financial year 2021/22 was approved. 
In order to provide the Company with flexibility in financing its strategic expansion plan, the Board of Directors has 
proposed an increase of the authorized and conditional capital. The shareholders approved the increase of the 
authorized capital with 88.2%, as well as the increase of the conditional capital by 10% of the existing share capital 
for convertible bonds with 71.9% of the votes in favor. 
Only the increase of the conditional capital for employee stock options by 5% of the existing share capital did not 
reach the required quorum of two-thirds of the votes with 60.9%. The Board of Directors regrets this result. For the 
coming growth phase and the successful implementation of its strategic goals, Meyer Burger has signed up top people and 
needs additional highly trained and dedicated employees, which is why a performance-based employee program has been 
Chairman Franz Richter commented: "The Board of Directors will also seek discussions with shareholders and the proxy 
advisors for a possible solution."
