CHANGES TO LOGISTICAL ARRANGEMENTS FOR THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
Metair shareholders (“Shareholders”) are referred to the condensed audited consolidated results
for the year ended 31 December 2019 and dividend announcement published on 18 March 2020
and the notice of annual general meeting (“AGM”) contained in the 2019 integrated annual report
distributed to Shareholders on 18 March 2020.
In light of the measures put in place by the South African Government in response to the
COVID-19 pandemic and the restrictions in regard to public gatherings, Shareholders are advised
that the AGM, scheduled to be held at 14h00 on Tuesday, 5 May 2020, will no longer be held in
person and will only be accessible through electronic participation, as permitted in terms of clause
16.5 of Metair’s memorandum of incorporation and the Companies Act, No. 71 of 2008
Shareholders who wish to participate in and/or vote electronically at the AGM should contact The
Meeting Specialists (“TMS”) on email@example.com or on +27 11 520 7952/0/1 as soon as
possible and by no later than Thursday, 30 April 2020 at 14h00. Shareholders may still register to
participate in and/or vote electronically at the AGM after this date, provided, however, that those
Shareholders are fully verified (as required in terms of section 63(1) of the Companies Act) and are
registered at the commencement of the AGM. Dematerialised sharesholders would still need to
submit proxies via the Central Secuties Depository Participants (“CSDP”) or obtain a letter of
representation to attend the meeting. TMS will assist Shareholders with all the requirements for
electronic participation and is obliged to validate the information of each Shareholder’s entitlement
to participate in and/or vote at the AGM before providing it with the necessary means to access the
AGM electronically and/or the electronic voting platform.
Shareholders will be liable for their own network charges in relation to electronic participation in
and/or voting at the AGM and it will not be for the expense of the JSE Limited (“JSE”), Metair or
TMS. Neither the JSE, Metair or TMS can be held accountable in the case of loss of network
connectivity or network failure due to insufficient airtime/internet connectivity/power outages which
would prevent a Shareholder from participating in and/or voting at the AGM electronically.
Notwithstanding the availability of the electronic voting platform, Shareholders may still submit
forms of proxy to TSM (in the case of certificated shareholders and dematerialised shareholders
with “own-name” registration) or provide instructions to their appointed CSDP or broker (in the case
of dematerialised shareholders without “own-name” registration) by no later than 14h00 on
Thursday, 30 April 2020 or the time and date stipulated by the CSDP or broker, respectively. For
the avoidance of doubt, forms of proxy submitted to TSM in respect of the AGM prior to this
announcement remain valid.
