2021 Annual General Meeting
Date: Tuesday, March 2, 2021, 14:00 CET
Place: Novartis Campus, Basel, Switzerland
Important Information regarding COVID-19
Unfortunately, the situation regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) did not allow us to hold the Annual General Meeting the conventional way.
On September 11, 2020, the Swiss Federal Council decided to extend the COVID-19 Ordinance 3 until December 31, 2021. In accordance with this ordinance, the Board of Directors of Novartis AG decided to hold the 2021 Annual General Meeting without shareholders being physically present. It was with great regret that the Board of Directors took this decision, but it considered this step as the only feasible option to protect the well-being of all parties involved. The safety of our shareholders and associates comes first.
Accordingly, shareholders could only exercise their shareholder rights via the Independent Proxy, lic. iur. Peter Andreas Zahn.
