Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX) to Provide Free of Charge Remote E-voting for Annual General Meetings of Listed Companies
 

Abu Dhabi, 21st March 2020: Abu Dhabi Securities Exchange (ADX) announced that it will be managing remote e-voting for Annual General Meetings (AGMs) of companies listed on the Exchange free of charge. This move will enable a crucial aspect of AGMs to be carried out remotely and will apply to AGMs taking place from the 17th of March until the end of April 2020. 

This ability is facilitated through an attribute of SAHMI, ADX’s integrated services’ digital platform – a well-established programme compatible with Smartpassthat allows users to access all services provided by the Exchange. 

ADX will provide the remote e- voting service to its listed companies without incurring any fees for its implementation. The measure answers to the need of providing value-added services to support the private sector, in light of the current market turbulences. The approach is aligned with ADX's business development strategy and commitment to comprehensively utilize digital services to reach higher customer satisfaction, while actively enhancing the global business environment.

The provision of this service comes at a time when the Exchange is proactively taking immediate measures that deal with current accelerating international changes.

By reducing the need for group meetings and empowering remote meeting capabilities, ADX’s strategy achieves the highest levels of safety standards in the current period.

The service will also reduce operational costs that can stem from the postponement of meetings when the quorum of participants is not complete. Such scenarios can result in delaying the issuance of decisions such as cash dividend distribution to shareholders.

ADX confirmed the conduction of coordinated consultations with the listed companies in order to facilitate the implementation of the Securities and Commodities Authority (SCA) instructions to make the e-voting mechanism available remotely.
