NOTICE – Extra General Meeting

NOTICE IS HEREBY GIVEN that an Extra General Meeting of the Ordinary Members of the Swedish Chamber will be held at SwedCham’s Office 25/F, BEA Harbour View Centre, 56 Gloucester Road, Wanchai, Hong Kong on
Friday 1 December 2017 at 8.30 am – 9 am.

(I)       Adopt amendments to the Chamber’s Articles of Association, proposed by the Registrar of Companies in Hong Kong

Background: At the Annual General Meeting of the Swedish Chamber of Commerce in Hong Kong (SwedCham) held on Friday 12 May 2017, the members resolved to amend SwedCham’s Articles of Association. Specifically, the following new wording of Article [13] now (12) was adopted:

“All Annual Subscriptions shall be payable in the manner and at such times as is decided by the Board from time to time.  The Board may reduce the Annual Subscriptions for certain groups of members or for certain time periods as is sees fit to advance the overall interest of the Chamber.”

Upon submitting the revised Articles of Association to the Companies’ Registry for registration, SwedCham was instructed that formal approval of proposed revisions, by the Companies’ Registry, was needed prior to putting the matter to a members’ vote. In addition, the Companies’ Registry recommended that SwedCham implement certain other revisions to its Articles of Association as a result of Hong Kong’s new Companies’ Ordinance, which came into effect in 2014. SwedCham has worked with outside legal counsel to revise its Articles of Association as per the feedback received from Companies’ Ordinance, and is now seeking a formal members’ resolution at an Extraordinary General Meeting. The board of directors is of the view that the proposed revisions to Articles of Association, other than implementing the revised Article [12] as per AGM resolution, do not change Articles of Association in substance.

On behalf of the Board of Directors

Eva Karlberg

General Manager
