BioNTech SE Shareholders Approve All Proposals at 2024 Annual General Meeting

BioNTech SE (Nasdaq: BNTX), referred to as “BioNTech” or the “Company,” held its Annual General Meeting (AGM) on May 17, 2024. The virtual assembly saw representation from 87.51% of the share capital. All 14 agenda items presented were approved by a significant majority of shareholders.

“The past few years marked a leap in competence for BioNTech,” said Helmut Jeggle, Chairman of the Supervisory Board. “With the development and commercialization of a leading COVID-19 vaccine, BioNTech has proven its ability to achieve targeted objectives. Today, BioNTech’s strong financial position provides an excellent foundation for its transformation into a multi-product company, focusing particularly on achieving commercial readiness in oncology.”

“2023 was a year of significant progress: We maintained a leading position in the COVID-19 vaccine market, published promising data for our oncology pipeline candidates, and launched potentially registrational trials. We also strengthened our organization to prepare for the next growth phase, especially regarding our planned oncology product launches,” said Prof. Ugur Sahin, M.D., CEO and Co-Founder of BioNTech. “We believe our therapies under development have the potential to complement or replace established cancer treatments in many areas once approved.”

Details of the voting results for all agenda items are available on the Annual General Meeting 2024 website under the ‘Voting Results’ section. Prof. Ugur Sahin’s speech and the presentation slides can be found in the ‘Speeches and Presentations’ section on the same site.
