SUPPLEMENTAL NOTICE OF
2018 FIRST EXTRAORDINARY GENERAL MEETING
Reference is made to: (i) the notice (the Notice) of the 2018 first extraordinary general meeting (EGM) dated 22 December 2017 which sets out the time and venue of the EGM and the resolutions (the Original Resolutions, each an Original Resolution) to be proposed before the EGM for approval by the Shareholders; (ii) the announcements of the Company dated 22 December 2017 and 19 January 2018; and (iii) the circulars of the Company dated 18 January 2018 and 22 January 2018. Unless otherwise defined herein, capitalised terms shall have the same meaning as those defined in the aforesaid announcements and circulars.
Subsequent to the despatch of the Notice, the Company received on 19 January 2018 from CEA Holding, the controlling Shareholder, a notice of its intention to propose four additional resolutions for consideration and approval at the EGM.
SUPPLEMENTAL NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN THAT, in addition to the Original Resolutions, the following resolutions (the New Resolutions) will be included in the Notice as four newly added resolutions number 3, 4, 5 and 6 for approval by Shareholders by way of special resolution at the EGM. Save for the above, all information and contents set out in the Notice remain unchanged.
NEW PROXY FORM
Since the Old Proxy Form sent together with the Notice does not contain the newly added resolution(s) as set out in this supplemental notice to be approved at the EGM, a New Proxy Form has been prepared and is enclosed with this supplemental notice.
You are requested to complete and return the New Proxy Form in accordance with the instructions printed thereon to Hong Kong Registrars Limited at Rooms 17121716, 17th Floor, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queens Road East, Wanchai, Hong Kong, as soon as possible and in any event not later than 24 hours before the time appointed for holding the EGM or any adjournment thereof (the Closing Time).
A Shareholder who has not yet lodged the Old Proxy Form with the Companys registrar is requested to lodge the New Proxy Form if he or she wishes to appoint proxies to attend the EGM on his or her behalf. In this case, the Old Proxy Form should not be lodged with the Companys registrar.
A Shareholder who has already lodged the Old Proxy Form with the Companys registrar should note that:
Accordingly, Shareholders are advised not to lodge the New Proxy Form after the Closing Time. If such Shareholders wish to vote at the EGM, they will have to attend in person and vote at the EGM themselves. Shareholders are reminded that completion and delivery of the Old Proxy Form and/ or the New Proxy Form will not preclude Shareholders from attending and voting in person at the EGM or at any adjournment thereof should they so wish.
As at the date of this announcement, the directors of the Company include Liu Shaoyong (Chairman), Ma Xulun (Vice Chairman, President), Li Yangmin (Director, Vice President), Xu Zhao (Director), Gu Jiadan (Director), Tang Bing (Director, Vice President), Tian Liuwen (Director, Vice President), Li Ruoshan (Independent non-executive Director), Ma Weihua (Independent non-executive Director), Shao Ruiqing (Independent non-executive Director) and Cai Hongping (Independent non-executive Director).
