Further to the announcement made by the Company on 8th March 2021 in relation to its intention to cancel the 59% per cent. shareholding in the Company held (directly and indirectly) by Jardine Strategic Limited ('Jardine Strategic' and the 'Share Cancellation', respectively), the Company is proposing to seek the approval of shareholders at the 2022 Annual General Meeting of Resolutions relating to a reduction of capital in the Company (the 'Capital Reduction') as well as a proposed amendment the Company's bye-laws in order to implement the Share Cancellation.
