a.s.r. to hold Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders

Today, ASR Nederland N.V. (a.s.r.) is publishing the notice convening the meeting and the accompanying documents for the Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders (EGM), to be held on Wednesday 28 October 2020 at the office of a.s.r. in Utrecht.

All the documents (the agenda of the EGM, the explanation of the agenda and the accompanying documents) are available on the webpage ‘General Meeting of Shareholders’.

The proposal to appoint Joop Wijn as member of the Supervisory Board will be put to the vote at the EGM. The proposed appointment will take effect from the closure of the EGM and will be for a period of four years, ending at the AGM in 2024. In addition, Joop Wijn is the intended successor to Kick van der Pol as chairman of the Supervisory Board, starting at the end of the AGM in May 2021.

The EGM will be held on Wednesday 28 October 2020. Due to the ongoing developments relating to COVID-19 (coronavirus), a.s.r. hereby makes the urgent request to shareholders not to attend the EGM in person. Shareholders can submit their vote prior to the meeting via (electronic) proxy. For more information on this we refer to our website

Because of the request not to attend the AGM in person, shareholders are offered the opportunity to ask questions about the agenda items prior to the meeting. These will then be dealt with during the meeting (or, if this is not possible, via the minutes). Shareholders can submit their questions until 26 October 2020, 12.00 noon at the latest. This can be done via agm@asrnederland.nl. 

In the context of a possible extension of the emergency legislation that allows for full virtual meetings, a.s.r. reserves the right to hold the EGM entirely virtual (or hybrid), without the physical presence of any shareholders. The developments surrounding COVID-19 will be followed closely. We recommend that you regularly (until the date of the meeting) consult the a.s.r. website for possible updates.
