Virtual General Meeting

Easy access for shareholders to engage and exercise their shareholder rights online.

VGM is a tool for companies that wish to foster active ownership and see a higher participation and interaction than in a physical meeting. The system is fully tried and tested.

Approval of new regulation facilitating virtual AGMs

At the end of December 2020, the Danish government approved an amendment to the Danish Companies Act which extends the authority granted earlier in 2020 to deviate from provisions in companies’ articles of association requiring that general meetings be held as physical meetings. The amendment gives a company’s management the option, without authority under the company's articles of association, to hold a fully or a partly virtual general meeting, and it will apply until 31 December 2021.

In 2021 we have facilitated 160 VGMs between January and June.

Meet investors who are unable to attend physical meetings

As a limited liability company or investment fund, you can vote at a general meeting to allow virtual general meetings to be held. This might benefit investors who are unable to attend the physical meetings.
