The Annual General Meeting of AB Volvo (publ) was held on Thursday, 18 June 2020 in Gothenburg.

Due to the extraordinary situation as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, AB Volvo’s Annual General Meeting was held in a different way than usually. In order to reduce the risk of spreading the virus and having regard to the authorities’ regulations and advice on avoiding public gatherings, the Meeting was carried out through advance voting (postal voting) pursuant to temporary legislation. No meeting with the possibility to attend in person or to be represented by a proxy took place. Hence, the Meeting was held without physical presence. In consequence, there was no customary product exhibition or other arrangements in connection with the Meeting.
