Notice of Extraordinary General Meeting of Jyske Bank A/S

This is to give notice of an Extraordinary General Meeting of Jyske Bank A/S, which will be held on Thursday 21 April 2022, at 10.00 a.m. at Vestergade 8-16, 8600 Silkeborg, Denmark.

At the Annual General Meeting held on 22 March 2022, the motions to amend the Articles of Association were adopted. However, the members in General Meeting with a right to vote represented less than 90% of the share capital, wherefore the final adoption of the proposed amendments to the Articles of Association is subject to adoption at an Extraordinary General Meeting.

The AGENDA for consideration and final adoption:

a. Motions proposed by the Supervisory Board:
  1. New Art. 7(2) to read as follows: ”The Supervisory Board shall be authorised to decide that the Bank’s general meetings be held as fully electronic general meetings without physical attendance. Participation in fully electronic general meetings takes place via electronic media which make it possible for the Bank’s shareholders to participate in, express one’s opinion and vote at the general meeting. The Supervisory Board must ensure that the general meeting can take place in a satisfactory way and that the system used has been designed in such a way that the statutory provisions for the holding of general meetings can be observed. Via their own connections the shareholders connect to a virtual forum at which the general meeting is held. The Supervisory Board determines the specific requirements of the electronic systems which are used at the general meeting. Where the Supervisory Board decides on a fully electronic general meeting, any information in this respect will be available at the Bank’s website www.jyskebank.dk and in the notice of the relevant general meeting. The notice will include information about requirements of the electronic equipment which should be used when participating, how registration is made and where shareholders can find information about the procedure in connection with the general meeting.”
As a consequence, Arts. 7(2), (3) and (4) will change into Arts. 7(3), (4) and (5).
  2. Amendment of existing Art. 7(2) (in future Art. 7(3)) to read as follows: “General Meetings shall be called by the Supervisory Board at not more than five weeks’ and not less than three weeks’ notice. The notice convening the General Meeting shall be sent to NASDAQ A/S and announced at Jyske Bank’s website. Notice of the General Meeting shall be given in writing to all registered shareholders who have so requested. The written notice can be replaced by an electronic notice, cf. Art. 20 of the Articles of Association. Notice of the General Meeting shall be given to the group’s employees.”
  3. Amendment to Art. 11(4) to read as follows: “Unless otherwise provided by legislation or by the Articles of Association, resolutions shall be adopted by a simple majority of votes cast. Votes shall be in writing when requested by one shareholder.”
  4. New Art. 20(1) to read as follows: ”All communication from the Bank to the shareholders can, if not otherwise determined by law, take place via electronic document exchange and electronic post (electronic communication) via the Bank’s website www.jyskebank.dk, via VP InvestorPortalen and/or via email, including notice of general meeting according to Art. 7 of the Articles of Association and publication of the annual report. General announcements are made available at the Bank’s website and in such other way that may be determined by law. The Bank may at any time decide to communicate via ordinary post as a supplement or alternative to electronic communication.”
As a consequence, Arts. 20-23 will change into Arts. 21-24.
  5. New Art. 20(2) to read as follows: ”Shareholders shall make sure that Jyske Bank is at all times in possession of the correct email address.”
  6. New Art. 20(3) to read as follows: ”With respect to communication from the shareholders to the Bank the issue of powers of attorney and the casting of a postal vote may take place at the VP InvestorPortalen via Jyske Bank’s website or through digital signature to Juridisk@jyskebank.dk. Registration of the adviser’s and/or own participation in a general meeting can be made at VP InvestorPortalen via Jyske Bank’s website. Please send questions from shareholders about the items of the agenda or the Bank’s position in general, request for the inclusion of a specific topic on the agenda of the annual general meeting, requests for an extraordinary general meeting and nomination in connection with the election to the Shareholders’ Representatives and/or the Supervisory Board to Juridisk@jyskebank.dk.”
  7. New Art. 20(4) to read as follows: ”Information about the requirements of the systems used and about procedures in connection with electronic communication will be published at Jyske Bank’s website www.jyskebank.dk.”
b. In connection with the proposed amendments to the Articles of Association, the Supervisory Board proposes that the members in General Meeting authorise the Supervisory Board to make such amendments as may be required by the Danish Business Authority in connection with registration of the Articles of Association. 
c. Any other business.
