Organisation of AGM/EGMs
All AGMs and EGMs are announced by the listed company in local securities newspapers.
The date of the meeting is usually one month after the announcement date. AGMs are held once a year, normally during the second quarter of the year.
Trading in the company’s stock is suspended from the date of the meeting until the results of the meeting are announced. Trading resumes one hour after the market opening on the day on which the results are announced.
Share blocking is not practised. If trading in the shares is normal either before or after the meeting, no shares will be blocked.
Proxy voting services are available for equities, however it's not applicable for the the China Interbank Bond Market.
