MMC Studios hosts the first virtual Annual General Meeting of INDUS Holding

14 August 2020

Due to the coronavirus pandemic, the SDAX-listed investment company INDUS Holding AG convened its first virtual Annual General Meeting (AGM) in August 2020. MMC Studios was responsible for providing suitable premises and ensuring the technical implementation. MMC Studios is a portfolio company of Novum Capital. On the day of the AGM, some of the members of the INDUS Supervisory Board, the INDUS Management Board and the notary public were in Studio 35 on MMC Studio's premises in Cologne-Ossendorf. The other members of the Supervisory Board and the INDUS shareholders followed the proceedings simultaneously on the internet.

Shareholders' meeting with high-end technology

MMC Studio's sister company Crosscast had installed a mobile control room in Studio 35 especially for online streaming. Web developers, cameramen, and image, sound, and lighting technicians guaranteed the AGM audience perfect transmission quality. The graphics on INDUS' corporate development were laid down in a director's plan, just like in a film production. And almost 80 questions from the audience were answered from various speakers without any problems.

MMC Studios prepared for further general meetings

Due to the event bans and social distancing measures as a result of the coronavirus pandemic, shareholders' meetings have been held almost exclusively via the internet since the end of March 2020. The new statutory guidelines for this are being actively used. Meanwhile, companies are increasingly calling for the statutory regulations on virtual general meetings to be extended until the end of 2021 to ensure greater planning security. MMC Studios is well prepared to host further annual general meetings.
