Schlieren (Zurich), Switzerland, April 19, 2021 – Kuros Biosciences (SIX:KURN) today announced that its Annual General Meeting approved the majority of the resolutions proposed by the Board of Directors. Two proposed resolutions relating to the grant of options to the Board of Directors and to an amendment of the Articles for an increase in the conditional capital for employee share options did not reach the required majority.
The Annual General Meeting approved the Annual Report, the Annual Financial Statements, and Consolidated Financial Statements for the year 2020 and took note of the Reports of the Auditors. Shareholders discharged the Board and the Executive Committee, voted in favor of the proposed appropriation of the Annual Results and approved the cash compensation for the members of the Board and the Executive Committee.
