The Company would facilitate the opportunity for Shareholders to participate effectively in and vote at general meetings of Shareholders. The Shareholders would also be briefed on the voting procedures and the resolutions that they are voting on.
The Company would allow corporations which provide nominee or custodial services to appoint more than two proxies so that Shareholders who hold shares through such corporations can attend and participate in general meetings as proxies.
Principles of Communications
The Company strives to provide pertinent and accurate information to its Shareholders and the investment community in an effective and timely manner.
The Company will communicate only through its Corporate Affairs department.
The Company and the Corporate Affairs spokesperson will establish and maintain regular dialogue with Shareholders, to solicit and understand the views of the Shareholders through analysts upon their request.
The Company does not respond to rumours. However, if rumours indicate that material information has been leaked or they are in fact false or inaccurate, the rumours will be promptly denied or clarified via announcements made through SGXNET to SGX-ST.
The Company observes a "prohibition period" of two weeks prior to the announcement of its quarterly results and one month prior to the announcement of its full-year results. During this period, the Company does not comment on industry outlook, the Group's business performance and financial results.
Methods of Communication
The Company actively engages its Shareholders and the investment community via:
Annual General Meeting ("AGM") and Extraordinary General Meeting ("EGM") if necessary;
financial results announced via SGXNET to SGX-ST and posted on the Company's corporate website;
site, property and mall visits;
news releases and statements;
notices of, and explanatory memoranda for AGMs and EGMs; and corporate website.
The Company's AGMs are the principal communication channels with its Shareholders and for Shareholders' participation.
All Shareholders are sent a copy of the notice of AGM prior to the AGM. As and when an EGM of the Shareholders is to be held, each Shareholder will be sent a copy of a circular with notice of EGM containing details of the matters to be proposed for the Shareholders' consideration and approval.
Notices for the general meetings setting out all items of business to be transacted at the general meeting, are also announced via SGXNET to SGX-ST.
Members of the Board, the Company's senior management and the external auditors of the Company are in attendance at all general meetings to address Shareholders' queries. Shareholders are given the opportunity to communicate their views on various matters affecting the Company. A Shareholder is allowed to appoint up to two proxies to attend and vote at the general meetings in his/her stead.
The Company supports voting by poll at all general meetings and the poll results are announced via SGXNET to SGX-ST on the same day of each Shareholders' meeting.
