FINLAND (News release) -- Metsä Board Corporation, part of Metsä Group, has, due to the pending Covid-19 status, decided to cancel its Annual General Meeting convened for the 26th of March 2020. Notice for the meeting was published on 12 February 2020.
Metsä Board takes the Covid-19 threat seriously and wants to secure a safe meeting for the company's shareholders and employees.
The Finnish government has proposed to the parliament that state of emergency legislation be applied, including restrictions on public gatherings, and recommendations that the same principles be applied to private gatherings. As a result the Board of Directors has decided that the Annual General Meeting must not be held in these unusual circumstances. The Annual General Meeting will be convened at a later point in time to be announced when feasible.
