The decision to defer the date for the AGM was taken after consideration of the need for meaningful and updated information to be made available to shareholders. Although a quarterly report had been filed and published, the TB8 Board were concerned to ensure that shareholders were given a timely and updated report on the business of the Company since its listing on the ASX. The inclusion of a half-yearly report and review by auditors at the postponed AGM presented an excellent opportunity to do so. Senior management will also provide a half-yearly operating report, enabling engagement with shareholders on questions and observations regarding the Company's performance in that period.
In addition, the Company will be providing ongoing information through our new Shareholder Engagement Program, setting out commercial initiatives taken in China and Australia to ensure the sustainability and profitability of the Company.
Teleconferencing and/or videoconferencing technology will be available to facilitate the participation of shareholders outside of Guangzhou, China. The business of the AGM remains substantially same as set out in the Notice of AGM sent to shareholders on 28 March 2017. Updated Voting Forms and Notice of AGM will be circulated in accordance with requirements under the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth). As a result of the postponement of the AGM, Voting Forms must now be received by no later than 10:00AM (Guangzhou time) on Wednesday 16 August 2017.
