Tuesday, June 30, 2020, at 2.00 pm

at the headquarter of Private Equity Holding AG, Gotthardstrasse 28, 6302 Zug

This year's Annual General Meeting will be held in accordance with the requirements of the Ordinance of the Swiss Federal Council regarding measures on combatting the Coronavirus. Under the measures taken by the Swiss Federal Council currently in place, the personal attendance of shareholders at the Annual General Meeting on site is not possible.

All shareholders have the option of providing the independent proxy with instructions via written or electronic proxy. This is possible with the enclosed reply form or electronically via the online platform developed by ShareCommService AG.

The Board of Directors would like to highlight that no event that can be attended by shareholders will take place at the General Meeting.

Agenda and proposals of the Board of Directors

1. Welcome

2. Approval of the annual report, the IFRS financial statements and statutory annual financial statements for the financial year 2019/2020; acknowledgement of the auditor's reports

After acknowledging the reports of the statutory auditors, the Board of Directors proposes to approve the annual report, the IFRS financial statements and statutory annual financial statements for the financial year 2019/2020.

3. Discharge of the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors proposes that discharge be granted to its members for the financial year 2019/2020.

4. Elections to the Board of Directors

4.1. Board of Directors

The term of the current Directors ends with this Annual General Meeting.

The Board of Directors proposes to re-elect the current members Dr. Hans Baumgart-ner, Martin Eberhard, Dr. Petra Salesny and Fidelis Götz for another one-year term ending at the next Annual General Meeting 2021.

4.1.1. Re-election of Dr. Hans Baumgartner to the Board of Directors and as Chairman

4.1.2. Re-election of Martin Eberhard to the Board of Directors

4.1.3. Re-election of Dr. Petra Salesny to the Board of Directors

4.1.4. Re-election of Fidelis Götz to the Board of Directors

4.2. Compensation Committee

The Board of Directors proposes to elect the following Board members to form the Compensation Committee for the period of one year (until the end of the AGM 2021):

4.2.1. Re-election of Martin Eberhard to the Compensation Committee

4.2.2. Re-election of Dr. Petra Salesny to the Compensation Committee

4.2.3. Re-election of Fidelis Götz to the Compensation Committee

4.3. Independent Proxy

The Board of Directors proposes to elect KBT Treuhand AG, Zurich, as an independent proxy for one year (until the end of the AGM 2021).

4.4. Election of the auditors

The Board of Directors proposes to re-elect KPMG AG, Zurich, as statutory auditors for another one-year term (until the end of the AGM 2021).

5. Appropriation of available earnings and dividend distribution

The Board of Directors proposes to distribute a total dividend of CHF 1.00 per registered share, of which one half will be distributed from the capital contribution reserves and one half from voluntary retained earnings. The Company forgoes the distribution to treasury shares held at the time of the distribution.

Since the Federal Act on Tax Reform and AHV Financing (STAF) came into force on January 1, 2020, it is no longer allowed to distribute dividends solely from capital contribution reserves as completed in previous years.

If this proposal is approved, the total dividend of CHF 1.00 per registered share will therefore be distributed 50% from voluntary retained earnings, minus a Swiss withholding tax of 35%. The other 50% of the total dividend will be distributed from capital contribution reserves, the distribution of which is tax-privileged, as the capital contribution reserves can be distributed free of Swiss federal withholding tax and the distribution will not be subject to income tax for natural persons resident in Switzerland who hold shares as a private investment.

The board of Directors proposes the following appropriation of retained earnings. In contrast to the published annual report 2019/2020, the total gross dividend of CHF 2.00 was adjusted to CHF 1.00 per share. The statutory auditors have examined the proposal of the Board of Directors regarding the appropriation of retained earnings and confirmed the compliance with the Swiss law and the articles of association.

CHF 1,000  
Net loss -567
Retained earnings 103,334
Total retained earnings 102,767
Allocation from capital contribution (reserves from capital contribution) in retained earnings1 1,295
Dividend distribution2 -2,590
- Thereof 50% from capital contribution reserves and 50% from retained earnings  
Balance to be carried forward2 101,472
 

1 For tax reasons a preceding reclassification is required from capital contribution reserves to free reserves before the distribution.

2 Based on 2,750,000 shares less 160,287 treasury shares held by the company as of June 2, 2020. The number of shares entitled for a dividend distribution may change due to transactions in treasury shares until the date of the dividend payment.

If the proposal of the Board of Directors is approved, the distribution will take place on July 8, 2020. The last trading day that entitles the recipient to receive the distribution is July 3, 2020. From July 6, 2020, the shares will trade ex-dividend.

6. Compensation of the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors proposes a total maximum amount of CHF 200,000 to be paid as compensation to the members of the Board of Directors for the period of one year (until the next AGM). If re-elected, Dr. Petra Salesny foregoes the compensation for her work as a member of the Board of Directors.

7. Compensation of the Delegate of the Board of Directors

The Board of Directors proposes an additional compensation to be paid to the Delegate responsible for the management of the Company. The proposed additional compensation shall not exceed a maximum amount of CHF 100,000 for the period of one year (until the next AGM).

8. Miscellaneous
