An AGM must be held every calendar year within four months from the end of the financial year (which usually corresponds to the end of the calendar year). As a consequence, AGMs are most often held by companies in March or April. Record date for Proxy Voting is five business days before the AGM. Shareholders' voting eligibility is determined based on settled position on Record date. Partial and split votes are allowed.
All shareholders holding the shares as on Record date are eligible to vote at the meeting.
