Extraordinary General Meeting to be Held on 11 August 2020 – Possible Delay in Receipt of Printed Copies of Circular
Unless otherwise defined, all capitalised terms shall bear the same meanings ascribed to them in the Circular (as defined below).
Singapore, 29 July 2020 – Sembcorp Marine Ltd (“SCM” or the “Company”) refers to the Company’s announcement dated 22 July 2020 in relation to the issue of the circular to shareholders of the Company (“Shareholders”) dated 22 July 2020 (the “Circular”) setting out further information on the Rights Issue and the Whitewash Resolution.
Following the issue of the Circular, the Company has been made aware that shipments from Singapore to overseas and vice versa may face substantial delay due to COVID-19 which has severely impacted international movement of people and goods as countries implement additional border controls and restrictions on international travel. As a result, airlines have drastically reduced international services, leading to a significant reduction in air freight capacity and frequency to and from Singapore to international destinations. Accordingly, Shareholders with addresses outside Singapore for the service of notices and documents (“Overseas Shareholders”) may experience significant delays in receiving printed copies of the Circular and Overseas Shareholders who intend to submit their completed Proxy Forms via mail should note that there may be a significant delay before the Company receives such completed Proxy Forms.
In this regard, Shareholders (including Overseas Shareholders) should note that they can download a copy of the Circular, the Notice and the Proxy Form from the Company’s website at the URL https://www.sembmarine.com/extraordinary-general-meeting, or from the SGX website at the URL https://www.sgx.com/securities/company-announcements. Shareholders are also encouraged to submit their completed Proxy Forms electronically via email as further described in the Circular, the Notice and the Proxy Form.
