AkzoNobel shareholders today voted on resolutions at the company’s Annual General Meeting (AGM), including a final dividend of €1.52 per share.
Given the restrictions in place due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the company held a virtual AGM. All shareholders were able to attend and vote virtually, submitting questions in advance and also live during the meeting.
CEO Thierry Vanlancker was reappointed as a member of the Board of Management for a two-year term. Patrick Thomas was reappointed as a member of the Supervisory Board for a second four-year term. Sue Clark and Michiel Jaski both completed their four-year terms, and subsequently the total number of Supervisory Board members will be reduced to six.
“We would like to thank Sue and Michiel for their valuable contribution as Supervisory Board members and wish them all the best for the future,” said Supervisory Board Chairman, Nils Smedegaard Andersen. “It’s been an extraordinary year, when the company’s ability to address today’s challenges
while driving the changes necessary to thrive tomorrow has proved vital. Everyone on the Supervisory Board is looking forward to the next chapter.
“We have also taken note of the feedback following the 2020 remuneration report,” continued Andersen, “and commit to incorporating relevant changes going forward.”
