UPDATED ARRANGEMENTS OF THE ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

 

Reference is made to the notice of the annual general meeting (the “AGM”) of China Mobile Limited (the Company”) dated 14 April 2020 (the “AGM Notice”). The AGM will be held on Wednesday, 20 May 2020 at 10:00 a.m. in the Conference Room, JW Marriott Hotel Hong Kong, Pacific Place, 88 Queensway, Hong Kong.

 

UPDATED ARRANGEMENTS IN RELATION TO ATTENDANCE OF THE AGM

 

Pursuant to Section 5(3) of the Prevention and Control of Disease (Prohibition on Group Gathering) (Amendment) (No. 2) Regulation 2020 made on 5 May 2020 (the Amendment Regulation”), a group gathering of more than 50 persons during a  shareholders’ meeting  of a listed company is required to be separated in different rooms or partitioned areas, each accommodating not more than 50 persons.

 

In light of the Amendment Regulation which came into operation on 8 May 2020, the Company will put in place the following updated arrangements in connection with the AGM.

 

Limiting attendance of the AGM in person: To comply with the Amendment Regulation and in light of the situation at the AGM venue, the Company will limit attendance of the AGM in person to 100 shareholders, with not more than 50 persons to be accommodated in each meeting room or partitioned area.

 

Prior online registration by registered shareholders: Registered shareholders (i.e. persons or companies holding shares of the Company in their own names which are entered in the Company’s register of members) (the Registered Shareholders”) who wish to attend the AGM in person are requested to register their interest to attend and provide the following details by email at agm2020@chinamobilehk.com during the period from Wednesday, 13 May 2020, 9:00 a.m. to Thursday, 14 May 2020, 6:00 p.m.:

 

(1) full name of the Registered Shareholder in English;

 


 

(2) registered address of the Registered Shareholder in English, or his/her 10-digit shareholder reference number starting with the letter “C” printed under the barcode on the top right corner of the notification letter to Registered Shareholders sent on 14 April 2020; and

 

(3) telephone number (optional) for ease of contact.

 

Basis of allocation: If registrations are received by the Company from more than 100 Registered Shareholders, balloting will be conducted.

 

Notification: Registered Shareholders who have been allocated the right of admission to the AGM venue in person will be notified individually by email on or before Monday, 18 May 2020, and such Registered Shareholders must bring the confirmation email when attending the AGM. No notification will be sent to those persons who are not successful in the balloting.

 

OTHER PRECAUTIONS TO BE TAKEN AT THE AGM

 

As stated in the AGM Notice and the proxy form in respect of the AGM (the Proxy Form”), in accordance with the Joint Statement in relation to General Meetings in light of  the Prevention and Control of Disease (Prohibition on Group Gathering) Regulation issued by the Securities and Futures Commission of Hong Kong and The Stock Exchange of Hong Kong Limited on 1 April 2020, the Company will take all practicable precautions to ensure the health and safety of shareholders attending the AGM, including but not limited to mandatory screening of body temperatures, requiring attendees to bring and wear their own surgical masks, physical distancing, no food or beverage service and no handing out of gifts. The Company will refuse entry to persons whose body temperature is 37.5ºC or higher, with flu-like symptoms or under quarantine.

 

THE PROXY FORM

 

The Company once again encourages shareholders to consider appointing the chairman of the AGM as his/her proxy to exercise his/her voting rights, instead of attending the AGM in person. A shareholder who has returned a Proxy Form to appoint a person other than the chairman of the AGM as his/her proxy may now still choose to appoint the chairman of  the AGM as his/her proxy to exercise his/her voting rights by completing and returning a new Proxy Form which will supersede the Proxy Form previously returned.

 

As stated in the AGM Notice and the Proxy Form, the Proxy Form together with the power of attorney or other authority (if any) under which it is signed, or a notarially certified copy thereof, must be deposited at the Company’s registered office at 60/F, The Center, 99 Queen’s Road Central, Hong Kong or its share registrar at 17M Floor, Hopewell Centre, 183 Queen’s Road East, Wanchai, Hong Kong at least 24 hours before the time for holding the AGM.
