Vestas receives request for scrutiny

A Vestas Wind Systems A/S shareholder has requested that the company’s Annual General Meeting, taking place on Thursday 21 March 2013, decides that a number of issues come under scrutiny and that an independent auditor to carry out the scrutiny will be appointed at the Annual General Meeting. The request for scrutiny has been made by Deminor, Avenue Edmond Van Nieuwenhuyselaan 6 b. 8, 1160 Brussels, Belgium, who states that they own one Vestas share. The received request is attached hereto.  

The Board of Directors will recommend the shareholders to vote against the request for scrutiny as it concern issues which have already been fully reviewed or otherwise are being investigated by the Board. In the opinion of the Board, additional investigations will be unnecessary and only obstruct the work of the Board and impose needless costs on the company.

Convening for Vestas Wind Systems A/S’ Annual General Meeting will be published at the company’s website on 25 February 2013.
