Logitech Announces Annual General Meeting Date
SIX Swiss Exchange Ad hoc announcement pursuant to Art. 53 LR
Logitech International (SIX: LOGN) (Nasdaq: LOGI) today
announced that the Company’s 2021 annual general meeting (AGM) will
take place on September 8, 2021.
Logitech also announced that, due to the Company’s limits on
board service, Didier Hirsch will leave the board when his current
term ends this fall. Hirsch has been a non-executive member of
Logitech's board of directors since September 2012, is the chair of
Logitech's Audit Committee and serves on Logitech's Nominating and
Governance Committee. As part of this planned transition, subject
to being re-elected as a director at the AGM, Deborah Thomas will
chair the Audit Committee at the end of Hirsch’s term.
“Didier has been a dedicated, loyal and valuable member of the
board for nearly a decade,” said Wendy Becker, Logitech’s
chairperson. “The team, and I, are grateful for his important
contribution during this period of transformation for Logitech. We
wish him well for the future.”
Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic, Logitech
will again forgo hosting shareholders at an in-person AGM this
year, to ensure the health and safety of all parties. Shareholders
can exercise their voting rights through the independent proxy.
Questions related to company business or meeting proposals will be
addressed by senior leadership.
As previously announced, at the AGM, shareholders will be asked
to vote on an annual dividend for FY 2021 of approximately CHF 0.87
per share* - an approximately 10% annual increase compared to the
FY 2020 dividend. If the dividend proposal is approved by
shareholders, the approximate payment date for the dividend is
expected to be September 22, 2021.
Logitech expects to publish its annual report to shareholders in
July 2021. The Company also intends to file its definitive proxy
statement, which includes the meeting proposals for its 2021 AGM,
with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission and post it on the
Company's website at http://ir.logitech.com in July 2021.
