Mainland China / Hong Kong SAR: Is your AGM affected by Covid-19 outbreak?
The Covid-19 outbreak may pose a number of challenges for the holding of general meetings if people are generally advised to avoid large gatherings and normal corporate business is disrupted because of travel restrictions.
Issuers should consider how they will deal with these in their plans for calling and holding all types of general meetings and, in particular, this year’s AGMs. Key questions to consider include the legal requirements to hold an AGM and the readiness of audited financial statements.
