Latvia, Lithuania: Change in proxy voting eligibility conditions
Clearstream Banking1 informs customers that effective
voting instructions in Latvia and Lithuania are conditional to the instructing party being included in the shareholders list.
Impact on customers
Customers of Clearstream Banking that wish to participate in voting events shall ensure they have complied with the disclosure event preceding the vote. If the disclosure is not successfully completed, submitted instructions will be rejected and considered invalid at market level.
There is no late disclosure possibility available.
Clearstream Banking will not bear any liability should the instruction not be executed on time due to incomplete, late or invalid disclosure.
Additionally, Clearstream Banking highly recommends that customers ensure proper subscription to the Shareholder Identification (SI) request notification service, so that disclosure notification requests are not missed (also refer to Announcement C20019).
For further information about Proxy Voting or SI request notification services, customers are invited to refer to the Customer Handbook or customers may contact Clearstream Banking Client Services or their Relationship Officer.
