Event Details

In combating the spread of Covid-19, strict social distancing measures have been launched by the Hong Kong government lately, meaning that all large-scale events have to be deferred or cancelled, while gatherings are to be restricted to 4 people or fewer.

Physical shareholder meetings have long been favored by listed firms and investors. However, with Covid-19, exploration of hybrid/virtual means to hold the annual general meetings (AGMs) this year is inevitable.

HKIRA has invited panel speakers to join us on a webinar to share their viewpoints and insights on possible options for listed companies to help navigate this AGM season.

This webinar will explore:

1. Legal and HKEX requirements on AGM

2. Legal constraints on hybrid/virtual shareholder meetings

3. Shareholders' concerns about the hybrid/ virtual-only structure

4. Technical requirement for hybrid/virtual meetings

5. Case sharing on hybrid/ virtual shareholder meetings

Date: 22 April 2020 (Wednesday)

Time: 5pm - 6pm

Venue: Webinar*

Medium: Cantonese

Accreditation: 1 CPD hour (HKIRA members only)

Fee: Free for HKIRA members ; $100 for non-members
