Geneva (Switzerland), RELIEF THERAPEUTICS Holding SA (SIX:RLF) (“Relief” or the “Company“) announces that the Ordinary General Meeting of Shareholders of Relief (the “OGM“) originally scheduled for June 19, 2020, must be postponed due to the lack of a formal requirement in the procedure for publishing the invitation to the 2020 OGM.
The new 2020 OGM date is now scheduled for July, 17, 2020. The agenda and the proposals of the Company’s board of directors remain unchanged and are available on the Company’s website (https://relieftherapeutics.com/key-information/). The new invitation will be sent to shareholders and formally published in due time in the Swiss Official Gazette of Commerce (SOGC).
As a result of the exceptional circumstances due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) pandemic, this new 2020 OGM will still need to be held in accordance with the requirements of the Ordinance of the Swiss Federal Council regarding measures on combatting the Coronavirus, in particular without the personal attendance of Relief’s shareholders.
The Company expresses its deepest apologies and thanks its shareholders for their understanding and support.
