Covid Restrictions

AGMs provide an opportunity for shareholders to question the Board, engage directly with Management, and hear the views of other shareholders. 

As a result of NZ’s 2021 Delta variant outbreak of Coronavirus (“COVID”), the Board of Directors have considered the arrangements for the upcoming AGM and complying with the government’s requirements on social distancing and the uncertainty of further restrictions.  The Board do not consider there a need to postpone the AGM at this time and the meeting will be held under the protocols applicable to Alert Level 2. 

Under Alert Level 2, there is a low risk of community transmission, however physical distancing of one metre must be applied to event facilities and face coverings (over the age of 12) are required.  Shareholders will be required to scan in using the NZ COVID Tracer app (or record their attendance on the tracker booklet). 

Shareholders at higher risk of severe illness from COVID (for example, those with underlying medical conditions and older people) are encouraged to take additional precautions if attending the meeting in person, unless fully vaccinated.

To plan appropriately for social distancing, could you please email office@opuha.co.nz if you will be physically joining the meeting.

While a physical AGM is planned to be held, to ensure the meeting is accessible to all members, and with the company’s Constitution providing for electronic meetings, the Board wish to hold a “hybrid” AGM in order to reduce the number of people attending the physical location.  Shareholders will be able to vote on the resolutions, view presentations and ask questions, using their own computers or mobile devices.  A link to join the meeting by computer or mobile will be emailed via a calendar invite in due course. 

Please accept the meeting invite if you will be virtually joining the meeting.

Should the COVID threat level be higher than Alert Level 2 on the day of the meeting, or if the Government restrictions mean that an in-person meeting cannot take place, the company will need to move to a fully online meeting.  The company will notify any changes to AGM arrangements through email and will post details on the home page of the company website. 

It is recommended that shareholders submit their proxy votes on resolutions to be considered at the meeting as soon as possible, in case they are not able to attend the meeting in person.

The safety of our shareholders remains a key focus in these challenging times.

Andrew Mockford, Chief Executive
