HELSINKI, March 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Stora Enso is offering a possibility to follow its Annual General Meeting (AGM) via webcast as a precautionary measure to decrease any risk of infection of the new COVID-19 coronavirus.
The company strongly encourages any shareholders who
a. have recently visited a risk area for coronavirus infection,
b. have symptoms of illness,
c. or who are part of the risk group,
to consider following the AGM by webcast or authorizing another person to represent them at the meeting.
Shareholders, who have registered for the event, but who decide not to attend the meeting, are asked to cancel their registration by e-mail email@example.com or by phone +358-204-621-245.
