DSV Panalpina A/S - AGM 16 March 2020

In general, DSV Panalpina (formerly DSV, see below) is in compliance with the Danish regulations relating to the organisation and procedures of the Annual General Meeting.

Under ITEM 5.5 it is proposed to re-appoint Ms. Malou Aamund as Member of the board of directors. Although she is considered independent, ECGS has concerns over her aggregate time commitments. In view of these concerns, ECGS normally would have recommended opposition. However, considering that the proxy card does not permit this, it recommends abstention instead.

ECGS notes that DSV completed the acquisition of Panalpina Welttransport (Holding) AG, a Switzerland-based provider of supply chain solutions with its core services comprising air freight, ocean freight and logistics and manufacturing, in August 2019. The net consideration paid amounted to DKK 33.8 billion and has been made in equity instruments by offering 2.375 ordinary DSV shares for one Panalpina share. Following completion of the transaction, the legal name of the holding company was changed from DSV A/S to DSV Panalpina A/S.
