Adjournment of the 2022 ZDP Class Meeting and 2024 ZDP Class Meeting

 

A minimum of two persons holding or representing by proxy at least one third in number of the issued ZDPs of the relevant class of ZDP, must be in attendance at each of the Class Meetings in order for the relevant Class Meeting to be quorate. An insufficient amount of 2022 ZDP Shares and 2024 ZDP Shares were represented at the 2022 and 2024 ZDP Class Meetings held earlier today and therefore the 2022 and 2024 ZDP Class Meetings were inquorate and were adjourned.

 

Pursuant to the Bye-laws of UIL Finance Limited, a reduced quorum of one 2022 ZDP Shareholder and one 2024 ZDP Shareholder present in person or by proxy now applies in respect of the adjourned 2022 and 2024 ZDP Class Meetings which will be held at Clarendon House, 2 Church Street, Hamilton HM 11, Bermuda at 9.05 a.m. and 9.10 a.m. respectively, Bermuda time, on 16 April 2021.

 

Forms of Proxy and Forms of Instruction for the 2022 and 2024 ZDP Class Meetings may continue to be submitted in line with the amended timetable below.  Forms of Proxy and Forms of Instruction that have already been submitted for the 2022 and 2024 ZDP Class Meetings remain valid for the adjourned meetings and do not need to be re-submitted unless a change in voting intention is required.

 

In light of the ongoing Covid-19 situation and measures in place to prevent the spread of the virus, 2022 and 2024 ZDP Shareholders are asked not to attend the relevant Class Meeting in person. Voting on the Resolutions will be conducted on a poll and ZDP Shareholders are therefore strongly encouraged to register their votes in advance by completing and returning the relevant Forms of Proxy, appointing the chairman of the relevant Meeting as their proxy to ensure their votes are counted.
