Shareholders' Rights

1. Convening Special General Meeting

  Shareholder(s) holding not less than one-tenth of the paid-up capital of the Company may request the board of directors of the Company to convene a special general meeting of the Company ("SGM"). The purposes of the meeting must be stated in the related requisition and deposited at the Company's registered office and principal place of business in Hong Kong. If the directors of the Company do not within 21 days from the date of the deposit of a request (after being verified to be valid) proceed to convene a SGM, the shareholders concerned, or any of them representing more than one-half of the total voting rights of all of them, may themselves convene a SGM, but any SGM so convened shall not be held after the expiration of three months from the date of the deposit of the request.

 


2. Putting forward proposals at general meetings 

  Shareholders holding not less than one-twentieth of the total voting rights of those shareholders having the right to vote at a general meeting or not less than one hundred shareholders can submit a written request to move a resolution at a general meeting. The written request must state the resolution, accompanied by a statement of not more than 1,000 words with respect to the matter referred to in the proposed resolution and deposited at the Company's registered office and principal place of business in Hong Kong not less than six weeks before the meeting in the case of a requisition requiring notice of a resolution, and not less than one week before the meeting in the case of any other requisition. Upon the request verified to be valid, the Company will give notice of the resolution or circulate the statement provided that the shareholders concerned have deposited a sum reasonably sufficient to meet the Company’s expenses in regard thereto.

 


3. Proposing a person other than a retiring director for election as a Director 

  If shareholders wish to propose a person other than a director of the Company for election as a director at a general meeting, they can deposit a written notice to that effect at the Company's registered office (or the Company's branch registrar in Hong Kong) and the Company's principal place of business 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 Rules Governing the Listing of Securities on The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited, and be signed by the shareholders 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 notice of the general meeting (inclusive of such day) and end no later than seven days prior to the date of the general meeting (inclusive of such day). The Company may need to adjourn the general meeting in order to have sufficient time to serve information of the nominated candidate(s) to the shareholders.
