AMSTERDAM, March 27, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Core Laboratories N.V. (NYSE: "CLB US" and Euronext Amsterdam: "CLB NA"), (the "Company" or "Core Lab") announces that on March 20, 2020, it filed its definitive proxy on form DEF-14A with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") setting the Company's 2020 annual shareholder meeting in Amsterdam, the Netherlands, for May 20, 2020 at 9:00 a.m. CEST.
On March 23, 2020, the Dutch authorities issued a pronouncement prohibiting public gatherings in the Netherlands until at least June 1, 2020, due to the effects of COVID-19. On March 26, 2020, the Dutch authorities clarified the pronouncement and stated that the prohibition did not apply to shareholders' meetings, as long as they comply with certain precautionary safety measures during the meeting.
The Company is committed to keeping all its stakeholders safe at the meeting to be held on May 20, 2020, in compliance with all regulatory safety requirements. The Company will conduct its 2020 annual shareholders' meeting on May 20, 2020, as previously announced, but the meeting will commence at 3:30 p.m. CEST, instead of at 9:00 a.m. CEST. The location of the 2020 annual meeting is also being moved to the offices of our Dutch counsel, NautaDutilh, N.V., whose offices are located at Beethovenstraat 400, 1082 PR Amsterdam, the Netherlands.
Core Lab will be filing additional proxy materials with the SEC to provide notice of such changes to the location and start time of the 2020 annual meeting.
