English: Due to the critical situation related to the spreading of the coronavirus and to follow the guidelines set out by the Danish government, including the prohibition against gatherings of more than 10 persons, the Annual General Meeting in Danfoss A/S is postponed. The most recent declaration issued by the Danish parliament allows this. When the prohibition against large gatherings is being terminated, Danfoss will convene the Annual General Meeting. For that reason, it is currently not possible to inform about the date of the Annual General Meeting.

Den seneste lovgivning vedtaget af Folketinget giver mulighed herfor. Når forbuddet mod større forsamlinger er ophævet, vil der blive indkaldt til ordinær generalforsamling.
