What else do I need to know?

Shareholders have a statutory right under the Companies Act 2006 to appoint one or more proxies to exercise all their rights at a shareholder meeting, including the rights to attend, speak and vote at the meeting.  The proxy appointment need not include voting instructions for the proxy.  However, if instructions are provided, the proxy must vote according to the member’s instructions.  If more than one proxy is appointed, each proxy must be assigned to exercise the rights attached to different shares.

How is a proxy appointed?

A proxy is appointed by the shareholder completing and delivering a written proxy notice to the company prior to the general meeting.  Each general meeting notice must include a statement of shareholders’ rights to appoint one or more proxies.  Typically, the form of proxy is included with the general meeting notice.

The Articles of Association may specify the form and contents of a proxy notice and the deadline for its delivery in advance of the general meeting.  This deadline cannot exceed 48 hours prior to the meeting, considering working days only.
