GlaxoSmithKline Consumer Nigeria Plc on Wednesday notified shareholders of its 49th Annual General Meeting (AGM) scheduled to hold on July 23 by proxy and live streaming due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
The notice, posted on the website of the Nigerian Stock Exchange (NSE) was signed by the Company’s Secretary, Uche Uwechia.
Uwechia said that the meeting would be held at the company headquarters in Lagos.
He said that in view of the COVID-19 pandemic and following the government’s restrictions on public gatherings, attendance to the meeting would only be by proxy to ensure public health and safety.
“A member entitled to attend and vote at the AGM is advised to select from the underlisted proposed proxies, to attend and vote in his or her stead.
“A member of the company entitled to attend and vote at the meeting is entitled to appoint a proxy to attend and vote in his, her or its place. A proxy need not be a member of the company.
” In view of the above, members should appoint a proxy of their choice from the listed proxies to represent them at the meeting,” he said.
According to Uwechia the listed proxies are: Mr Edmund Onuzo; Mr Kunle Oyelana; Mr Samuel Kuye; Mr Matthew Akinlade; Sir Sunny Nwosu and Mr Nornah Awoh.
He said that if the dividend recommended is approved, dividend would be paid electronically on Friday, 24 July to holders of shares whose names appeared in the Register of Members at the close of business on June 22.
Also, those who have completed the e-dividend registration and mandated the Registrar to pay their dividends directly into their bank accounts would be paid.
Uwechia urged shareholders to fill the proxy forms attached to the notice and submit to the company’s registrar.
