Any shareholder of the Company entitled to attend and vote at the meeting is entitled to appoint any number of proxies (who must be individuals) to attend and vote instead of him. A proxy need not be a shareholder of the Company. If more than one proxy is appointed, the number of shares in respect of which each such proxy so appointed must be specified in the relevant form of proxy.
Where there are joint registered holders of any share, any one of such persons may vote at the meeting, either personally or by proxy, in respect of such share as if he were solely entitled thereto; but if more than one of such joint holders be present at the meeting personally or by proxy, that one of the said persons so present being the most or, as the case may be, the more senior shall alone be entitled to vote in respect of the relevant joint holding and, for this purpose, seniority shall be determined by reference to the order in which the names of the joint holders stand on the Register of Members in respect of the relevant joint holding.
In order to be valid, the proxy form together with a power of attorney or other authority, under which it is signed or a notarially certified copy of that power of attorney or authority, must be deposited at the Company's Hong Kong Share Registrar, Computershare Hong Kong Investor Services Limited (for both holders of Class A Shares and holders of Class B Shares), at 17M Floor, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queen's Road East, Wan Chai, Hong Kong not less than 48 hours before the time appointed for the meeting or the adjourned meeting (as the case may be). Completion and return of the form of proxy shall not preclude a shareholder of the Company from attending and voting in person at the meeting and, in such event, the instrument appointing a proxy shall be deemed to be revoked.
For determining the entitlement to attend and vote at the meeting, the register of members of the Company will be closed from September 24, 2020 to September 29, 2020 both dates inclusive, during which period no transfer of shares will be registered. In order to be eligible to attend and vote at the meeting, unregistered holders of shares of the Company shall ensure that all transfer documents accompanied by the relevant share certificates must be lodged with the Company's Hong Kong Share Registrar, Computershare Hong Kong Investor Services Limited (for both holders of Class A Shares and holders of Class B Shares), at Shops 1712-1716, 17th Floor, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queen's Road East, Wan Chai, Hong Kong for registration not later than 4:30 p.m. on September 23, 2020.
