Further details are set out in the Lumi Online Meeting Guide on pages 31 to 34 of the full Notice.

Appointment of proxies

Each member entitled to vote at the Meeting may appoint a proxy to attend and vote at the Meeting. A proxy need not be a member and can be an individual or a body corporate. A member entitled to cast two or more votes may appoint two proxies and may specify the proportion or number of votes each proxy is appointed to exercise.

A body corporate appointed as a member’s proxy may appoint a representative to exercise any of the powers the body may exercise as a proxy at the Meeting. The appointment must comply with section 250D of the Corporations Act. The representative should bring to the Meeting evidence of his or her appointment, including any authority under which the appointment is signed, unless it has previously been given to the Company.

Sections 250BB and 250BC of the Corporations Act apply to voting by proxy. Members and their proxies should be aware of these provisions of the Corporations Act. Generally, these sections provide that:

  • if proxy holders vote, they must cast all directed proxies as directed; and

  • any directed proxies which are not voted will automatically default to the Chair, who must vote the proxies as directed.

Proxies on Items 1, 4 and 5

If members appoint the Chair as their proxy (or the Chair is appointed by default) and they do not complete any of the boxes “For”, “Against” or “Abstain” opposite Items 1, 4 or 5 on the Proxy Form, they will be expressly authorising the Chair to vote on the relevant Item in accordance with the Chair’s stated voting intention, even though the Item is connected directly or indirectly with the remuneration of a member of key management personnel. The Chair intends to vote (where appropriately authorised) all available undirected proxies in favour of all Items.

If members appoint the Chair as their proxy and wish to direct him how to vote, they can do so by marking the boxes for the relevant Item (i.e. by directing him to vote “For”, “Against” or “Abstain”).

If members appoint a member of key management personnel (other than the Chair) or any closely related party of a member of key management personnel as their proxy, they must direct that person how to vote on Items 1, 4 or 5 if they want their Shares to be voted on those Items. If members appoint a member of key management personnel (other than the Chair) or any closely related party of a member of KMP and they do not direct them how to vote on Items 1, 4 or 5, such a person will not cast their votes on that Item and their votes will not be counted in calculating the required majority.

Lodgement of proxy documents

For an appointment of a proxy for the Meeting to be effective:

  • the proxy’s appointment; and

  • if the appointment is signed by the appointor’s attorney – the authority under which the appointment was signed (e.g. a power of attorney) or a certified copy of it,

must be received by the Company at least 48 hours before the start of the Meeting (i.e. by 11.00 am (Perth time) on Wednesday, 24 November 2021). Proxy appointments received after this time will be invalid for the Meeting

United Kingdom (CREST voting instruction)

Depository Interest holders in CREST (DI Holders) may transmit voting instructions by utilising the CREST voting service in accordance with the procedures described in the CREST Manual. CREST personal members or other CREST sponsored members, and those CREST members who have appointed a voting service provider, should refer to their CREST sponsor or voting service provider, who will be able to take appropriate action on their behalf.

In order for instructions made using the CREST voting service to be valid, the appropriate CREST message (CREST Voting Instruction) must be properly authenticated in accordance with Euroclear’s specifications and must contain the information required for such instructions, as described in the CREST Manual (available at www.euroclear.com/CREST).

To be effective, the CREST Voting Instruction must be transmitted so as to be received by the Company’s agent (Computershare UK) no later than 22 November 2021 at 11.00 am (GMT). For this purpose, the time of receipt will be taken to be the time (as determined by the timestamp applied to the CREST Voting Instruction by the CREST applications host) from which the Company’s agent is able to retrieve the CREST Voting Instruction by enquiry to CREST in the manner prescribed by CREST. DI Holders in CREST and, where applicable, their CREST sponsors or voting service providers should note that Euroclear does not make available special procedures in CREST for any particular messages. Normal system timings and limitations will therefore apply in relation to the transmission of CREST Voting Instructions. It is the responsibility of the DI Holder concerned to take (or, if the DI Holder is a CREST personal member or sponsored member or has appointed a voting service provider, to procure that the CREST sponsor or voting service provider takes) such action as shall be necessary to ensure that a CREST Voting Instruction is transmitted by means of the CREST voting service by any particular time.

DI Holders and, where applicable, their CREST sponsors or voting service providers are referred, in particular, to those sections of the CREST Manual concerning practical limitations of the CREST system and timings.

Form of instruction

DI Holders are invited to attend the Meeting (either physically or online, in each case, as a visitor) but are not entitled to vote at the Meeting. In order to have votes cast at the Meeting on their behalf, DI Holders must complete, sign and return the Forms of Instruction sent to them to the Company’s agent, Computershare UK, by no later than 22 November 2021 at 11.00 am (GMT).

ENDS.
