  new holding company, to communicate electronically with its shareholders.

(1) The appointment of a proxy is not an unequivocally precise indicator of the
way that the shareholder would have voted on a poll. It merely reflects their
intention at the time the instruction was given. Voting instructions can be
changed at any time prior to a poll being completed and a shareholder having
lodged a proxy appointment is still entitled to attend the meetings and vote
their shares themselves as they see fit.
