Procedures for a Shareholder to Propose a Person for Election as a Director
If a Shareholder wishes to propose a person other than a director of the Company for election as a director at the Annual General Meeting (“AGM”), he/she can deposit a written notice to that effect at the head office of the Company in Hong Kong for the attention of the Company Secretary.
In order for the Company to inform Shareholders of that proposal, the written notice must state the full name of the person proposed for election as a Director, include the person’s biographical details as required by rule 13.51(2) of the Listing Rules, and be signed by the Shareholder concerned and that person indicating his/her willingness to be elected.
The period for lodgment of such a written notice will commence no earlier than the day after the despatch of the AGM notice (inclusive of such day) and end no later than seven (7) days prior to the date of the AGM (inclusive of such day). If the notice is received less than fifteen (15) days prior to the AGM, the Company will need to consider the adjournment of the AGM in order to allow Shareholders fourteen (14) days’ notice of the proposal.
