Annual General Meeting
What are the advantages of the electronic voting platform for you as a shareholder?
It makes it easier to register for the meeting and exercise your voting right, as well as issue a proxy to a third party. It also gives you the opportunity to amend previously issued instructions up to six days before the meeting.
When is the electronic voting platform available?
The electronic voting platform is available from the publication date of the convocation until six days before the meeting. This means that for the meeting to be held on May 2, 2018, shareholders can use the electronic voting platform from March 21, 2018 to April 26, 2018 at 17:00 CEST. The electronic voting platform will close on April 26, 2018 at 17:00 CEST, but shareholders can still view any instructions they have given.
Please note that if you register before the Record Date of April 4, 2018, your bank will only be able to verify after the Record Date that you indeed hold shares and how many. As a result, it may be that you have to wait some time for your confirmation. Ultimately, you can contact AMG’s agent by email firstname.lastname@example.org or phone +31 20 5636799.
Is it possible to change your voting instruction?
Yes, you can change or revoke an instruction until Thursday, April 26, 2018 at 17:00 CEST. If you wish to, you can change an issued voting instruction; revoke an issued voting instruction and subsequently register to attend the meeting; or revoke registration for the meeting and issue a proxy to a third party.
As a shareholder, how many votes can you cast?
The number of shares you hold as a shareholder on the Record Date determines the maximum number of votes you can cast. The Record Date is April 4, 2018. If you cast more votes than the total number of shares you hold, you will receive notification from your intermediary or bank that your voting instruction has been rejected.
What should you do as a shareholder if you cannot or do not wish to vote via the electronic voting platform?
Shareholders who do not attend the meeting, but who wish to be involved in decision-making, or shareholders who would prefer to vote via the existing process, can use the voting form that is available on the corporate website (www.amg-nv.com). They can also request a voting form from ING Bank N.V. Issuer Services (location code TRC 02.039, Foppingadreef 7, 1102 BD Amsterdam, email: email@example.com, fax: +31 20 5636959). The registration and voting forms should be received in time at the address specified on the forms by April 26, 2018.
