Listed firms must hold AGMs in Singapore and conduct voting by poll, SGX mandates
THE Singapore Exchange (SGX) is taking steps to improve shareholder access to annual general meetings and to ensure their AGM votes are tallied accurately.
From Jan 1 next year, all companies and trusts with a primary listing here will have to hold their AGMs in Singapore, the SGX said in an announcement on Wednesday.
most companies do this already, but some continue to hold their meetings abroad.
For instance, earlier this year, some S-chips or China companies listed here held AGMs in Hong Kong or mainland China.
