This year, the Annual Shareholders’ Meeting of Siemens Healthineers AG takes place against the background of the COVID-19 pandemic: For the first time, the event will be held virtually, without the physical presence of shareholders and their proxy representatives, and with no general debate. Despite extraordinary circumstances, the Supervisory Board and the Managing Board have drawn a positive conclusion with regard to the business development: “In fiscal year 2020, Siemens Healthineers were not just content to keep the company stable in the face of historic challenges. Instead, the team saw the crisis as an opportunity to emerge stronger from it,” said Supervisory Board Chairman Prof. Dr. Ralf P. Thomas.
