What is a Power of Attorney for an Ordinary Shareholders’ Meeting?

At least once a year, shareholders of Swiss companies need to convene within six months from a business year’s end, most of all to approve the financial statements and results, as well as to appoint the directors and the auditor.

Shareholders assemble annually at a general or ordinary (shareholders’) meeting, which forms the supreme body of the company.

The shareholders need not attend the meeting in person and may give a proxy to another person who will vote in their name at the shareholders’ meeting. In this case, the underlying document, the power of attorney, must clearly state who is the proxy and who is the shareholder, respectively, and contain the necessary voting instructions.

It must be noted that the articles of incorporation can limit the representation of shareholders to proxies that also must be shareholders.
