the proposed amendments to the Company’s MOI, as well as the resolutions in anticipation
of the Proposed Rights Offer, which are set out in the Circular to Shareholders which was
released on SENS on Friday,12 June 2020.
2. Change in logistical arrangements for the General Meeting
2.1 As a result of the recent COVID-19 outbreak in South Africa and its declaration as a
‘national disaster’ in terms of the Disaster Management Act, 2002 (and accordingly, the
restrictions imposed thereby on, among others, public gatherings), the board of the
Company has decided not to hold the General Meeting in person at The Maslow Hotel.
2.2 Accordingly, the General Meeting will proceed at 09:00 on Monday, 13 July 2020, and will
only be accessible through electronic communication, as permitted by the JSE Limited and
the provisions of the Companies Act and the Company’s Memorandum of Incorporation.
2.3 To this end, the Company has retained the services of The Meeting Specialist Proprietary
Limited (‘TMS’) to host the General Meeting on an interactive electronic platform remotely,
in order to facilitate remote participation and voting by Shareholders. TMS will also act as
Shareholders who wish to participate electronically in and / or vote at the General Meeting
are required to contact TMS on email@example.com or alternatively contact their
office on +27 11 520 7950/1/2 as soon as possible, but in any event, for administrative
purposes only, by no later than 09:00 on Thursday, 09 July 2020. However, this will not in
any way affect the rights of Shareholders to register for the General Meeting 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 General Meeting, will be allowed to participate in and / or vote by electronic means.
Shareholders are strongly encouraged to submit votes by proxy before the General
Meeting. If individual Shareholders wish to participate in the General Meeting, they should
instruct their CSDP or broker to issue them with the necessary letter of representation to
participate in the General Meeting 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.
2.4 TMS will assist Shareholders with the requirements for electronic participation in, and / or
voting at the General Meeting. TMS is further obliged to validate (in correspondence with
Sun International and, in particular, the Transfer Secretary, Link Market Services South
Africa (Pty) Limited (‘Link’), and your CSDP) each such Shareholder’s entitlement to
participate in and / or vote at the General Meeting, before providing it with the necessary
means to access the General Meeting and / or the associated voting platform.
2.5 Aside from the costs incurred by Sun International as a result of the hosting by TMS of the
General Meeting 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 in and / or voting at the General Meeting. Any such charges will
not be for the account of the JSE, Sun International and / or TMS. None of the JSE, Sun
International or 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 in and / or
voting at the General Meeting.
3. Voting by Proxy
3.1 Notwithstanding the above, Shareholders are reminded that they are still able to vote
normally through proxy submission, despite deciding to participate either electronically or
not at all in the General Meeting. Shareholders are strongly encouraged to submit votes
by proxy in advance of the General Meeting.
3.2 Kindly ensure that TMS is copied when submitting all completed proxy forms and / or letters
of representation to Link.
