Proof of shareholder status will be evidenced by presenting the relevant certificate issued by HCSD in paper format or, alternatively, through direct Company access to the HCSD electronic files. The Company must safely receive the relevant HCSD certificate or the electronic confirmation denoting the shareholder status on the third day prior to the date of the Annual Ordinary General Meeting at the latest. Shareholders who do not comply with the provisions of article 28a of the Codified Law 2190/1920 can only participate in the meeting following permission granted by the General Assembly. There is no requirement for share blocking on behalf of the entitled shareholders or other similar procedure limiting the ability to sell or transfer the shares during the intervening period between the record date and the Ordinary General Meeting date.

 

In case that the required quorum, according to the Law and the Company Codified Memorandum and Articles of Association, is not achieved and because of this reason decisions on the matters on the agenda cannot be made, a Repeat Meeting will be held on Wednesday June 22nd, 2016 at 13:00 hours at the above NJV Athens Plaza Hotel (2 Vassileos Georgiou A’ Street, Syntagma Square). Saturday, June 18th, 2016 will be the record date for the Repeat General Meeting. The Company must safely receive the relevant HCSD certificate in paper format or the electronic confirmation denoting the shareholder status, on the third day prior to the date of the Repeat General Meeting at the latest.

 

Eligible shareholders, as defined above, can participate in the Annual Ordinary General Meeting of the Company in person or through legally authorised representatives by presenting a copy of their S.A.T. details and their Identification Card (ID) or other documentation proving their identity.

 

Each shareholder has the right to appoint up to three (3) representatives. Legal Entities may participate in the Annual Ordinary General Meeting by appointing up to three (3) persons as their representatives. Nevertheless, if a shareholder keeps MOTOR OIL (HELLAS) S.A. shares in more than one security accounts, the limitation in the number of representatives does not prevent the shareholder from appointing different representatives for the shares kept in each separate securities account in connection to the Annual Ordinary General Meeting. A representative acting on behalf of several shareholders may vote in a different way for each shareholder.

 

A shareholder representative is under the obligation to disclose to MOTOR OIL (HELLAS) S.A., prior to the commencement of the Annual Ordinary General Meeting, any specific fact, which may be useful to Company shareholders for the assessment of the likelihood that the representative may serve interests other than those of the represented shareholder. Within the context of the present paragraph, a conflict of interest may arise particularly in cases in which the shareholder representative:

a)     Is the controlling shareholder or other legal entity or body controlled by the controlling shareholder of MOTOR OIL (HELLAS) S.A.

b)    Is a member of the Board of Directors or the management team of MOTOR OIL (HELLAS) S.A. in general or of the controlling shareholder or other legal entity or body controlled by the controlling shareholder of MOTOR OIL (HELLAS) S.A.

c)     Is an employee or certified auditor of MOTOR OIL (HELLAS) S.A. or of the controlling shareholder or other legal entity or body controlled by the controlling shareholder of MOTOR OIL (HELLAS) S.A.

d)    Is the spouse or first degree relative of one of the persons mentioned in the above cases a) to c).

 

The relevant representation (proxy) form is available at the Company website (www.moh.gr menu option: Investor Relations / Shareholder Structure) and has to be duly signed and submitted or sent by post to MOTOR OIL’s (HELLAS) S.A. registered address (12A Herodou Attikou street, 151 24 Maroussi) in good time for receipt three (3) days prior to the Annual Ordinary General Meeting date or the Repeat General Meeting date. Shareholders having no access to the Company website can secure copies of the representation (proxy) form by calling at the Company Shareholders’ Office (tel: +30 210 8094 042 person responsible: Ms Kerassioti) which will attend to dispatch arrangements. Due to lack of a relevant provision in the Company Memorandum and Articles of Association, the use of electronic means for the appointment and annulment of shareholder representatives will not be accepted.

 

Each registered share issued by the Company is entitled to one vote. Due to lack of a relevant provision in the Company Memorandum and Articles of Association, remote participation and voting as well as participation and voting through electronic means in the Annual Ordinary General Meeting or the possible Repeat General Meeting will not be feasible.
