2020 SunRice AGM and B Class Meeting

Chairmain’s Letter

“A and B Class Shareholders are invited to attend the 2020 SunRice Annual General Meeting (AGM) and B Class Meeting on 28 August 2020. Unfortunately, while we had intended to hold the Meetings physically in Jerilderie and online, given the escalation of COVID-19 cases and proximity of Jerilderie to the Victorian border, we have taken the decision to hold them online only.

“It is important to us that all A and B Class Shareholders have the opportunity to participate, ask questions and vote on the resolutions the Board is putting forward for your consideration, irrespective of the new format. The Notice of Meeting/s and this page contain information on how to log-in for each Meeting and vote via our share registry portal, either ahead of time or on the day.

“My fellow Directors and I will also endeavour to contact as many shareholders as possible over the coming weeks to answer any questions you may have and ensure you have the technical support in place to participate. Please note online voting is open now and you can contact Link Market Services on 1800 237 764 or Lena Henman on (02) 6953 0404 for step by step advice on logging in and casting your vote. You can also submit questions or make comments online through the Link portal.

“These are troubling times. We carefully considered  this decision while exploring all options to progress with the Meetings in the Riverina. We thank you for your understanding in advance and hope to have the opportunity to speak with you in the weeks ahead.”
