To weather the storm of Covid-19, the Calida Group is withholding its financial forecasts and asking its shareholders not to pay a dividend for the 2019 financial year. The Swiss owner of the Lafuma, Millet and Oxbow brands has also nominated Hans-Kristian Hoejsgaard for the presidency of its board of directors. Marco Gadola will be stepping down from that post but remaining vice president of the supervisory board. Dijana Kellenberger, who represents the interests of a founding family of Calida on the board of directors, intends to withdraw from the supervisory board in order to concentrate fully on the operational management of the family-owned company Blue Lemon, a body and lounge wear brand. These and other matters will be taken up at Calida’s forthcoming general meeting, originally scheduled for April 29 but now moved up to April 17. Shareholders will be taking part remotely.
