What is the difference between a shareholder of record and a “street name” holder?
In the United States, the vast majority of shares held by a broker or an agent of that broker are registered under the name of Cede & Co., as nominee for The Depository Trust Company (which acts as depositary and clearing house for many U.S. brokerage firms and custodian banks). If your shares are held in a stock brokerage account or otherwise by a broker, bank, trust or other nominee, then Cede & Co. is considered the record or registered holder, and you are considered the beneficial owner, of those shares, and your shares are said to be held in “street name.” Street name holders generally cannot vote their shares directly and must instead instruct their broker, bank, trust or other nominee how to vote their shares in connection with shareholder meetings.
If your shares are registered directly in your name in the Company’s records, you are considered the shareholder of record with respect to those shares.
How do I become a shareholder of record?
If your shares are held in “street name” and you wish to become a shareholder of record, you can instruct your broker-dealer to move your security position through the Direct Registration System (“DRS”) to American Stock Transfer & Trust Company, LLC (“AST”), the Company’s transfer agent, for direct registration on the Company’s share register held with AST. The DRS provides for electronic direct registration of securities in an investor's name on the books of a company with its transfer agent, and allows shares to be transferred between a transfer agent and broker electronically. If you later wish to sell your shares through your broker-dealer, you may instruct your broker-dealer to request that your shares be moved back to the broker-dealer through the DRS.
How do I vote my shares at the Annual General Meeting?
Our Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) will take place on April 13, 2017 at 10 am CET at the Parkhotel Zug, Industriestrasse 14, Zug, Switzerland.
Shareholders of Record
Shareholders registered in the share ledger maintained by AST at 4 pm EST on April 7, 2017 are entitled to participate in and vote at the AGM.

Shareholders who do not attend the AGM in person may grant a proxy to the independent proxy or a third party.
AGM materials and more information will be made available on the events page of our website closer to the AGM date and will be mailed to holders of record.
“Street Name” Holders
“Street name” holders should follow the instructions provided by their bank, broker or nominee when voting their shares. “Street name” holders who wish to vote in person at the AGM must obtain a signed proxy from the organization that holds their shares entitling them to represent and vote the shares at the AGM. The record date for “Street name” holders is March 10, 2017.
Proxies to the Independent Proxy
The Independent Proxy will vote the shares in accordance with the instructions provided by shareholders. Absent any instructions, the Independent Proxy will vote FOR all proposals submitted by the Board of Directors to the AGM.
Whilst currently not foreseen, the Board of Directors may find itself in a position where it wishes to submit new proposals or new agenda items to the AGM. You may instruct the Independent Proxy to vote “FOR”, “AGAINST” or “ABSTAIN” from voting on such new proposal or new agenda item by ticking the appropriate box (“General Instructions on new proposals of the Board of Directors/new agenda items”) of your proxy form. Absent any instruction, the Independent Proxy would vote in accordance with the Board of Directors’ proposal on any new proposals or new agenda item proposed to the AGM.
