CHC - ASX Waiver relating to the EGM
Charter Hall Group (ASX:CHC) (Charter Hall or the Charter Hall Group) has been granted a waiver from ASX Listing Rule 14.7, to the extent necessary, to permit the Group not to comply with the voting exclusion statement in the notice of extraordinary general meeting (EGM) dated 27 June 2014 in relation to the resolution for the ratification of a placement of 36,842,106 fully paid ordinary stapled securities in the Group (Resolution).
The waiver permits the votes of security holders who participated in the placement to be counted, to the extent only that those holders are acting solely in a fiduciary, nominee or custodial capacity on behalf of beneficiaries who did not participate in the placement (Nominee Holders), on the following conditions:
• The beneficiaries provide written confirmation to the Nominee Holders that they have no interest in the outcome of the Resolution, nor are they an associate of a person who has an interest in the outcome of the Resolution;
• The beneficiaries direct the Nominee Holders to vote for or against the Resolution;
• The Nominee Holders do not exercise discretion in casting a vote on behalf of the beneficiaries; and
• The terms of the waiver are immediately released to the market. The effect of the waiver is to maximise the number of votes that may be cast at the EGM on the Resolution by Nominee Holders who did not participate in the placement.
David Southon, Joint Managing Director, said: “We have sought this waiver to ensure that investors who did not participate in the recent placement, can continue to have their votes counted for the resolution at the EGM next Friday 25 July 2014, despite the fact that they may share the same Custodian or Trustee as other investors that participated in the placement.”
