The global fight against the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) has triggered an unprecedented impact on economic activity in the markets we are operating in. As it is impossible at this time to predict the length and depth of the situation, capital preservation is one of our key priorities. Therefore, as a precautionary measure, Randstad has decided to remove its 2019 ordinary and special cash dividend proposals from the agenda of the Annual General Meeting of shareholders to be held tomorrow, 24 March 2020. See this press release issued on 23 March 2020.
