As previously communicated, the UBS Group AG Board of Directors proposes an ordinary dividend of USD 0.37 (gross) in cash per share for the financial year 2020.

The Board of Directors proposes a capital reduction by way of cancellation of shares repurchased under the 2018–2021 share buyback program and the approval of a new share buyback program 2021–2024.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the Board of Directors is regretfully unable to plan the Annual General Meeting (AGM) as a physical event. The upcoming AGM will therefore be held as a webcast once again. UBS asks its shareholders to exercise their voting rights through the independent proxy.

Zurich, 9 March 2021 – The UBS Group AG Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place on 8 April 2021 and will begin at 10:30 a.m. CEST. The AGM will be broadcast live in both German and English at ubs.com/agm.

In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and related restrictions, the Board of Directors has decided that voting rights must be exercised through the independent proxy. UBS regrets that physical participation in the AGM will once more not be possible.

The invitation to the AGM, including explanatory information on individual agenda items, is available at ubs.com/agm.
