MRC ASM - FAQ (FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS)
1. Why is there no physical venue for the 2020 ASM?
This in pursuance of the General Community Quarantine (GCQ) that is in effect in Metro Manila due to the COVID-19 pandemic. Under the guidelines set by the Inter-Agency Task Force (IATF), no mass gatherings shall be allowed in places under GCQ. So, to carry out ASM 2020, as no mass gatherings is allowed, the Company has decided to conduct our ASM via virtual means. Through video conference, stockholders will be able to attend the said event in the safety of their residence.
2. How can I vote for matters included in the 2020 ASM agenda if there is no physical meeting?
Follow the instructions entitled “Notice for MRC Allied Annual Stockholders Meeting”, which is available at the Company’s website using the following link.

3. What are the different deadlines and cut offs for the proxies, the voting portal and the live stream?
To summarize, the deadlines are:
● Deadline for the submission of Proxy: September 11, 2020 at 5pm
The deadline for the submission of proxies is fixed in the Company’s By Laws at seven (7) days before the date of the ASM. For the 2020 ASM, the deadline falls on September 11, 2020. This deadline gives a good lead time for the Proxy Validation Committee time to validate the proxies received.
● Deadline for the registration in the Voting Portal: September 15, 2020 at 5:00 pm
This is to give the Corporate Secretarial Team lead time to collate and validate the votes received through the Registration Portal. The deadline has been extended from the original cut off time of 5:00 pm on September 11, 2020 to give more stockholders time to register and vote.
Votes cast by stockholders who registered until 5:00 pm of September 15, 2020 will be presented during the ASM.
● Deadline for the registration in the Livestream: September 15, 2020 at 2:00 noon
The deadline set for the Livestream is to ensure the orderly conduct of the 2020 ASM and that only stockholders and invited guests attend.
Rest assured, the Company has made every effort to extend these deadlines so as near to the actual time of the ASM as possible. Considering that this will be the first time the Company will be conducting its ASM via remote communication, we request your understanding on the need for as much time as necessary to ensure a smooth and orderly conduct of the 2020 ASM.
