ELECTRONIC PARTICIPATION – NOVUS HOLDINGS ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
Novus Holdings shareholders are referred to the announcement released on SENS on 21 August 2020
wherein they were advised, inter alia, that:
- the annual general meeting (“AGM”) of shareholders of the Company will be accessible through
electronic communication, as permitted by the JSE Limited (“JSE”) and the provisions of the Companies
Act and the Company's Memorandum of Incorporation (“MoI”), at 10h00 on Friday, 18 September
2020, to consider and, if deemed fit, to pass with or without modification all of the ordinary and special
resolutions set out in the notice of AGM, which Notice of AGM is available on the Company’s
website: www.novus.holdings; and
- shareholders would be advised on the details for electronic participation at the AGM in due course.
Accordingly, shareholders are referred to the following:
The Company together with its transfer secretaries, Link Market Services South Africa Proprietary Limited
(“Link”), and The Meeting Specialist (“TMS”) shall host the AGM on an interactive electronic platform, to
facilitate remote participation by shareholders. Link will also act as meeting scrutineer.
Shareholders who wish to participate electronically at the AGM are required to contact TMS at
firstname.lastname@example.org or on +27 11 520 7952/0/1 as soon as possible, but in any event, for
administrative purposes only, by no later than 10h00 on Monday, 14 September 2020. However, this will
not in any way affect the rights of shareholders to register for the AGM after this date, provided, however,
that only those shareholders who are fully verified (as required in terms of section 63(1) of the Companies
Act) and subsequently registered at the commencement of the AGM, will be allowed to participate by
electronic means. Shareholders wishing to vote, will be assisted by TMS by emailing
email@example.com or alternatively by contacting TMS on +27 11 520 7952/0/1 by no later than
10h00 on Monday, 14 September 2020 (electronic notice). Shareholders are able to vote through proxy
submission in the usual manner, despite opting to participate electronically. Shareholders are strongly
encouraged to submit votes by proxy before the AGM. TMS will assist shareholders with the requirements
for electronic meeting participation. TMS is obliged to validate this information with your CSDP before
providing you with the necessary means to access the voting platform.
Shareholders are strongly encouraged to submit votes by proxy before the AGM. If dematerialised
shareholders without “own name” registration wish to participate in the AGM, they should instruct their
CSDP or broker to issue them with the necessary letter of representation to participate remotely in the
AGM in person, in the manner stipulated in their respective custody agreements. These instructions must
be provided to the CSDP or broker by the cut-off time and date advised by the CSDP or broker for
instructions of this nature.
Aside from the costs incurred by the Company as a result of the hosting of the AGM by way of a remote
interactive electronic platform, which shareholders can choose to access, shareholders will be liable for
their own network charges in relation to electronic participation at the AGM. Any such charges will not be
for the account of the Company and / or Link and / or TMS. Neither of the Company, Link nor TMS can be
held accountable in the case of loss of network connectivity or other network failure due to insufficient
airtime, internet connectivity, internet bandwidth and / or power outages which prevents any such
shareholder from participating at the AGM.
Shareholders are reminded that they are still able to vote normally through proxy submission, despite
deciding to so participate either electronically or not at all in the AGM. Shareholders are strongly
encouraged to submit votes by proxy in advance of the AGM.
Completed proxy forms should be delivered by email at firstname.lastname@example.org or by post to,
Link at 13th Floor, Rennie House, 19 Ameshoff Street, Braamfontein, 2004, before the person(s) so
empowered seeks to exercise any right granted to it under such instrument, and are requested to be lodged
timeously so as to be received, for administrative purposes, by 10h00 on Wednesday, 16 September 2020.
The chairperson of the AGM may reject or accept any form of proxy which is completed and/or received
otherwise than in accordance with the proxy notes, provided that he / she is satisfied as to the manner in
which the shareholder concerned wishes to vote.
Proxy forms delivered on the day of the meeting must be delivered by email to the Company at
email@example.com with a copy thereof to the company secretary of Novus Holdings at
Melonie.Brink@novus.holdings to be received by both of them before the person so empowered seeks to
exercise any right granted to it under such instrument.
