LEXINGTON, Mass. and AMSTERDAM, June 15, 2020 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- uniQure N.V. (NASDAQ: QURE) announced today a change to the location and format of its 2020 Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (the “2020 Annual Meeting”). In light of the continuing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and public health concerns, the location and format of the 2020 Annual Meeting will be conducted exclusively by remote communications, via the Internet.

The meeting will continue to be held on Wednesday, June 17, 2020, at 8:30 a.m. Eastern Standard Time/ 2:30 p.m. Central European Summer Time. Shareholders will not be able to attend the 2020 Annual Meeting in person and will not be able to vote their shares in real time, but shareholders of record as of the close of business on May 20, 2020, will be able to participate in the 2020 Annual Meeting through the virtual meeting platform.
