Information for Shareholders
Due to the entry into force of the Act of August 30, 2019 amending the Code of Commercial Companies and certain other acts (Journal of Laws of 2019, item 1798 as amended), hereinafter referred to as the “Act”, we would like to inform shareholders that pursuant to the provisions of the Act, shares in joint stock companies are subject to mandatory dematerialisation. As a result of dematerialisation of shares, the form of shares will change from the existing document being a security to a record in the IT system. In the process of dematerialisation of shares, shareholders are called five times by the company to submit share documents in the company. The shareholder will be issued a written receipt after the share documents have been submitted with the company.
We would like to inform you that the binding force of the share documents will expire by operation of law on March 1, 2021, and on the same day, the legal effect will be given to entries in the register of shareholders, which will be the primary source of information about the rights to participate in the company. The shareholder register is open to the company and each shareholder.
The register of shareholders is kept by an entity which, pursuant to the Act of 29 July 2005 on Trading in Financial Instruments, is authorized to keep securities accounts.
Pursuant to the provisions of the Act, until January 1, 2026, share documents will remain in force as evidence, but only to the extent to allow the shareholder to demonstrate to the company entitlement to share rights.
