Owing to the nationwide lockdown to curb the spread of Covid-19, JSE-listed Assore will hold an electronic general meeting relating to a shares repurchase offer.
The general meeting will proceed at 11:00 am on April 16, but will only be accessible through electronic communication, as permitted by the JSE and the provisions of the Companies Act.
To this end, Assore has retained the services of The Meeting Specialist (TMS) to host the general meeting on an interactive electronic platform remotely, to facilitate remote participation and voting by shareholders.
Assore advises shareholders wishing to participate electronically in and/or vote at the general meeting to contact TMS on email@example.com, or at +27 11 520 7950/1/2 by no later than 11:00 on April 14.
However, the company emphasised that this will not in any way affect the rights of shareholders to register for the general meeting after this date, provided, however, that only those shareholders who are fully verified and subsequently registered at the start of the general meeting, will be allowed to participate in and/or vote by electronic means.
