Judith Greciet, Onxeo's Chief Executive Officer, said: “Onxeo's Annual General Meeting is a key moment for dialogue with our shareholders. Although this year the health context prevents us from organizing this meeting "in person", we wanted to facilitate the exchanges as much as possible, which will take place via a web conference during which Mrs. Danièle-Guyot Caparros, Mr. Nicolas Fellmann and myself will be present to answer your questions. In addition, for the first time, we are introducing Internet voting, in addition to the more random postal voting, given the current postal delays. The mobilisation of all our shareholders is key, the resolutions presented are necessary for the further development of our company, and we are counting on each of you to participate, remotely, at least by your votes and if possible at the presentation session on May 29.“
