It was stated at the meeting that 25,967,552 votes out of a total of 44,525,346 votes were represented. Thus, 58.32 percent of the votes were represented. The Annual General Meeting was conducted through a so-called hybrid annual meeting where shareholders in digital could pre-utilize voting at the Annual General Meeting or physically directly at the Annual General Meeting. 72 shareholders had attended the Annual General Meeting.
The outbreak of Covid 19 and a complete "lock-down" in the United Arab Emirates, where most of the company's operations are located, obviously affected Numisbing's revenues significantly in the last three months until a week ago. This is the reason why the AGM did not decide this year not to endorse the usual generous dividend on the shareholders' shares. Earnings in the previous year of just over SEK 11 million speak for themselves as a successful year.
However, the rare coin market is still very strongly related to the downturn in the world economy. Auction prices on the world market for rare coins and banknotes are rising strongly in terms of both valuations and final prices at the various auctions held at the various international auction houses. The extensive collections owned through collectible funds, in which Nusmisbing is part owner and procures coins and banknotes on assignment, are in an upward trend in value. The more troubled the stock market is, the more interest in numismatic collections increases.At the Annual General Meeting, Numisbing's management announced that it is looking bright at the outlook for the second half of 2020. As the world moves towards recession, where investors lose confidence in traditional investments, the demand for alternative investments such as gold, art and other rare objects rises. Numisbing's management saw such a trend in 2008 and the pattern seems to be repeating during 2020. This means that the value is likely to increase for Numisbing's shares in the upcoming stock exchange listing as well as the value of the assets contained in "Collectibles funds".
