2021 SunRice AGM

2021 SunRice AGM

Chairmain’s Letter

AGM to be held online

On 2 August 2021 the SunRice Group announced that it had made the decision to hold its 2021 Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 25 August 2021 in an online only format.

This decision has been made in the interests of health and safety and with regard to the extension of COVID-19 restrictions in Sydney to at least 27 August 2021; the continued differences in restrictions across the Riverina; and the impact of the NSW-Victoria border closure on a number of shareholders.

SunRice will ensure all participants have the opportunity to participate, ask questions and vote on the resolutions the Board is putting forward at the AGM, in line with the online-only meetings that took place in 2020 under similar circumstances.

The Virtual Online Guide can be found here , and contains detailed information on how to log in to attend and vote during the meeting. Shareholders wishing to vote in advance of the meeting (either directly or via proxy) should refer to the instructions in the Notice of Meeting issued on 21 July 2021, and copied below.
