Notice of shareholder meetings
MTI Wireless Edge Ltd. (AIM: MWE), the technology group focused on comprehensive communication and radio frequency solutions across multiple sectors, is pleased to announce that it will be holding its Annual General Meeting (the "AGM") at 10.00 a.m. (London time) on 19 April 2021 at the Company's head office at 11 HaMelacha street, Rosh HaAyin, Israel. The AGM will be followed by an Extraordinary General Meeting (the "EGM") to be held at the same location for the purpose of seeking shareholders' approval for the reappointment of Mrs. Lihi Elimelech Bechor as external director for three years.
While the Board recognises that the AGM represents an important opportunity for it to engage with shareholders and provides a forum that enables shareholders to speak directly with the Board, in light of the current COVID-19 situation and related public health guidance and legislation, shareholders will not be able to attend the AGM or the EGM in person. The Company will make arrangements so that the legal requirements to hold the AGM and EGM can be satisfied and that the AGM and EGM are quorate, but no shareholders will be permitted entry to the physical meetings.
Shareholders are therefore strongly encouraged to submit their vote in advance of the AGM and EGM, as set out below.
To provide an opportunity to engage with the Board and ask questions, the Company intends to make available a facility for shareholders or depositary interest holders who register their interest in advance to watch and listen to the AGM and the EGM live over a webcast and ask questions during the meeting. In order to make this more efficient the Board encourage the shareholders to submit questions in advance as part of their webcast registration information.
To have their votes counted, all shareholders are urged to appoint the Chairman of the meeting as their proxy and holders of depository interests are urged to instruct Computershare Company Nominees Limited to vote on their behalf.
Further information, including details on registering for the webcast and on the resolutions, is detailed below.
The AGM is being called for the purpose of:
1. presentation of the 2020 financial reports;
2. to re-elect Mr. Zvi Borovitz as a non-executive chairman of the Company;
3. to re-elect Mr. Dov Feiner, as a director of the Company;
