No printed copies of the Circular (including the Notice of EGM and the Proxy Form) will be despatched to the Shareholders of the Company ("Shareholders").
Shareholders should take note of the following arrangements for the EGM:
Shareholders or proxies attending the Physical Meeting will be provided with handsets for voting purposes.
It is important for Shareholders and proxies who attend the Virtual Meeting to have their own web-browser enabled devices ready for voting during the Virtual Meeting. Examples of web-browser enabled devices include mobile smartphones, laptops, tablets, or desktop computers with internet capabilities.
As the Shareholders will use the login credentials provided during pre-registration to cast their votes, they should therefore have their Confirmation Email containing their unique user credentials and instructions handy for reference for voting purposes.
The Company may reject any Proxy Form lodged if the Shareholder appointing the proxy is not shown to have Shares entered against his/her/its name in the Depository Register as at 72 hours before the time appointed for holding the EGM as certified by CDP to the Company.
Completion and submission of the Proxy Form shall not preclude a Shareholder from attending and voting at this EGM. Any appointment of a proxy or proxies (including the Chairman of this EGM) shall be deemed to be revoked if a Shareholder attends the EGM, and in such event, the Company reserves the right to refuse to admit any person or persons appointed under the Proxy Form to the EGM.
A Shareholder (who is not a Relevant Intermediary) entitled to attend and vote at a meeting of the Company is entitled to appoint one (1) or two (2) proxies to attend and vote on his/her/its behalf. A proxy need not be a Shareholder. Where a Shareholder appoints two (2) proxies, the appointments shall be invalid unless he/she/it specifies the number of Shares to be represented by each proxy.
A Shareholder who is a Relevant Intermediary is entitled to appoint more than two (2) proxies to attend and vote at the EGM, but each proxy must be appointed to exercise the rights attached to a different Share or Shares held by such Shareholder. Where such Shareholder appoints two (2) or more proxies, the appointments shall be invalid unless such Shareholder specifies the number of Shares to be represented by each proxy.
Documents and information relating to the EGM (including the Notice of EGM, the Circular and the EGM Proxy Form) are available on SGXNET (www.sgx.com) and via the "EGM Documents" button at the bottom of this page. Printed copies of the Notice, the Circular and the Proxy Form will not be sent to Shareholders.
