BDO is automatically reappointed as auditor of the company under section 207T of the Companies Act 1993 (the Act). Pursuant to section 207S of the Act, this resolution authorises the Directors to fix the fees and expenses of the auditor.

 

Voting

 

The resolutions will be voted on by shareholders of the Company as ordinary resolutions. An ordinary resolution is a resolution passed by a simple majority of the votes cast of the shareholders entitled to vote and voting.

 

Voting on the resolutions will be by poll. Results of voting will be available after the conclusion of the meeting, and will be notified on NZX.

 

The only persons entitled to vote at the annual meeting are registered shareholders as at 5:00pm on Monday, 18 December 2023 and only the ordinary shares registered in those shareholders’ names may be voted at the annual meeting.

Any shareholder who is entitled to vote at the annual meeting may appoint a proxy to attend and vote on their behalf. A shareholder wishing to appoint a proxy should complete and return the Proxy Voting Form (enclosed with this notice of meeting) in the manner specified on the Proxy Voting Form so that the form is received by Computershare no later than 48 hours before the time for holding the meeting. Alternatively, shareholders can appoint their proxies online at www.investorvote.co.nz.

 

A proxy does not have to be a shareholder in the Company. A shareholder may appoint any person to act as a proxy. The Chairman of the meeting or any other director can be a proxy for a shareholder if a shareholder wishes to appoint the Chairman or director as their proxy.

 

If, in appointing a proxy, you have inadvertently not named someone to be your proxy (either online or on the enclosed Proxy Voting Form), or your named proxy does not attend the meeting, the Chairman of the meeting will be your proxy, and will vote in accordance with your express direction. If appointed as a discretionary proxy, each Director and the Chairman intends to vote in favour of the resolution.

 

To direct your proxy how to vote on the resolution, you should tick the appropriate box on the enclosed Proxy Voting form (or using the online portal at www.investorvote.co.nz). Except as set out in the Proxy Voting Form, if you appoint a proxy, but do not tick one of the boxes in relation to a resolution, you will be deemed to have granted your proxy the discretion to cast your votes as he or she decides.

 

Any corporation that is a shareholder may appoint a person as its representative to attend the annual meeting and vote on its behalf, in the same manner as that in which it could appoint a proxy. A corporation wishing to appoint a person must ensure that the representative brings an original of the notice appointing him or her to the meeting. To assist administration, the Company would be grateful if notices appointing representatives are delivered to Computershare Investor Services Limited, Level 2, 159 Hurstmere Road, Takapuna, Auckland, New Zealand (Private Bag 92119, Auckland 1142) at least 48 hours before the time of the meeting. If the note of appointment is not delivered to the Company’s Share Register prior to the meeting, the representative must bring to the meeting an original copy of the notice of appointment signed by the relevant company or body corporate.
