  • Chief Financial Officer EZ said that in the coming weeks the auditors will send both the draft income statement and balance sheet for review by the board.
  • In view of the upcoming Annual General Meeting (AGM), the Board instructed the
    Company Secretary to prepare “Notice of Annual General Meeting” without Covid-19 protocols (and restrictions).

EZ said he will follow up with Clearstream (through the MSE) to gain a better understanding of the overall shareholder structure accordingly. [See Annex 3].
