The Legimeet platform is designed specifically to cater to the prerequisites of annual general meetings. During live online meetings, all types of business covered in a physical meeting can be managed, including decision-making via an online voting functionality. The collaboration between Direkt News and Legimeet has resulted in a unique plug-and-play service for digital annual general meetings that includes the digital meeting platform, professional studio production, and access to distribution via Direkt’s and their owner Infront’s channels.

“Legimeet’s and Direkt’s expertise and recognized positions in the finance industry provide a strong  foundation from which they offer a complete solution with professional, live studio productions without any delay. Once Legimeet has prepared the customer’s agenda and voting list in the platform, the company management simply need to take their spots in the studio. Everything is all set up and ready to roll,” says Lars Östlund, Managing Director, Direkt News/Direkt Studios.

“Our offer is unique with live, interactive annual general meetings held in real time in a professional studio, at a competitive price. We are convinced that this collaboration will both simplify and develop companies’ communications with their shareholders even after the pandemic is over. Now that we’ve gotten all the necessary details of an annual general meeting into place in accordance with all the regulations, we see the start of a fast-growing trend where digital annual general meetings will become the standard. Traditional physical annual general meetings will soon be a thing of the past,” says Johan Aronsson, Managing Director, Legimeet.
