What are the details of your upcoming AGM?

Date, time and conduct of AGM

Sembcorp Marine will convene and hold its 58th Annual General Meeting by way of electronic means on Friday, 23 April 2021 at 11.00 a.m. (Singapore time).

Shareholders will not be able to ask questions at the AGM live during the webcast or audio-stream, and therefore it is important for Shareholders to pre-register and submit their questions in advance of the AGM.


No personal attendance at AGM

Due to the current COVID-19 situation in Singapore, Shareholders will not be allowed to attend the AGM in person. Shareholders will need to pre-register at the website https://sembmarine-agm2021.listedcompany.com/registration from 9.00 a.m. on 31 March 2021 till 11.00 a.m. on 20 April 2021 to enable Sembcorp Marine to verify their status as shareholders.


Alternative arrangements for participation at the AGM

Shareholders may participate at the AGM by:

(i)    observing and/or listening to the AGM proceedings via live audio-visual webcast or live audio-only stream;
(ii)    submitting questions in advance of the AGM; and/or
(iii)    appointing the Chairman of the Meeting as proxy to attend, speak and vote on their behalf at the AGM, if such Shareholder wishes to exercise his/her/its voting rights.

Details of the steps for pre-registration, pre-submission of questions and voting at the AGM can be found further below in this FAQ section or at the annual general meeting section of our website.


Notice of AGM and Proxy Form

Why is the AGM conducted via audio-visual webcast/audio-only stream?

Sembcorp Marine's decision to convene and hold the AGM by way of electronic means via audio-visual video webcast / audio-only stream follows:

(a) the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) Act 2020 which enables the Minister for Law by order to prescribe alternative arrangements for listed companies in Singapore to, inter alia, conduct general meetings, either wholly or partly, by electronic communication, video conferencing, tele-conferencing or other electronic means;
(b) the COVID-19 (Temporary Measures) (Alternative Arrangements for Meetings for Companies, Variable Capital Companies, Business Trusts, Unit Trusts and Debenture Holders) Order 2020 (the “Order”) which sets out the alternative arrangements in respect of, inter alia, general meetings of companies; and
(c) the joint statement by the Accounting and Corporate Regulatory Authority, Monetary Authority of Singapore and Singapore Exchange Regulation of 13 April 2020 (and subsequently updated on 27 April 2020, 22 June 2020 and 1 October 2020) which provides additional guidance on the conduct of general meetings during the period from 27 March 2020 to 30 June 2021.
