87. (a) In a public company, shareholders may vote in the general meeting and in a class meeting by means of a voting paper in which the shareholder indicates how he votes on resolutions relating to the following matters:

(1) appointment and removal of directors;

(2) approval acts or transactions requiring the approval of the general meeting pursuant to the provisions of sections 255 and 268 to 275;

(3) approval of a merger pursuant to section 320;

(4) any other matter in respect of which there is a provision in the articles of association or there under to the effect that decisions of the general meeting may also be passed by means of a voting paper;

(5) other matters prescribed by the Minister pursuant to section 89.

(b) A voting paper shall be sent by the company to every shareholder; a shareholder may indicate his vote on the voting paper and send it to the company.

(c) A voting paper on which a shareholder has indicated his vote and which has reached the company prior to the last day prescribed for such shall be considered as presence at the meeting for the purposes of the existence of a quorum as provided in section 78.

(d) A voting paper received by the company as provided in subsection (c) regarding a particular matter in respect of which no vote was held at the general meeting shall be considered as an abstention in the vote at such general meeting in respect of a resolution to hold an adjourned meeting pursuant to the provisions of section 74, and shall be counted at the adjourned meeting to be held pursuant to the provisions of sections 74 or 79.

Voting at general meeting by written vote

88. (a) The board of directors and any person at whose demand the board of directors convenes a special general meeting pursuant to the provisions of section 63, may address the shareholders in writing, via the company, in order to convince them of how to vote on one of the matters enumerated in section 87 to be discussed at such meeting (hereinafter “statement of position”); the company shall send statements of position under this subsection to shareholders at its expense, together with a voting paper for such meeting.

(b) Where a general meeting has been convened with one of the matters enumerated in section 87 on its agenda, a shareholder of the company may address the company and request that it send a statement of position on behalf of the shareholder to the other shareholders in the company; a statement of position under this subsection may be at the shareholder’s expense, or at the company’s expense, as the Minister may prescribe pursuant to the provisions of section 89; however, a company may provide that all statements of position under this subsection be at its expense.

(c) The board of directors of the company may send a statement of position to shareholders, in response to a statement of position sent as provided in subsections (a) or (b), or in response to some other address to shareholders of the company.

Addressing shareholders

89. The Minister may, in consultation with the Minister of Finance and the Securities Authority, prescribe provisions regarding the voting paper and the statement of position pursuant to this Article, inter alia, with respect to the following matters:

(1) matters in addition to those provided in section 87 to which this Article applies;

(2) grant of a full or partial exemption from the application of the provisions of sections 87 and 88, regarding certain types of companies, under such classification as may be prescribed, taking into account, inter alia, the rate of holdings of a person holding control of such companies, the majority required for passing the resolution at the general meeting in certain companies and taking into account the place of registration for trading in the securities of the company;

(3) grant of an exemption from sending voting papers and statements of position to some of the shareholders in certain companies, taking into account the rate of voting rights or the value of shares held by them, and in respect of shareholders as provided in section 177(1), taking into account also the proportion of voting rights and the value of shares held by each separate member of a stock exchange in each securities account;

(4) the manner of service of voting papers and statements of position on shareholders, and the manner of sending voting papers to the company, including by means of members of a stock exchange or by means of a corporation controlled by them, or by means of some other corporation, the obligation of attaching a certificate evidencing ownership of shares on the prescribed date, and dates and timetables for effecting the acts required for carrying out the provisions of this Article;

(5) the maximum payment to be made for sending voting papers or statements of position and the manner of imposing such payments and expenses for sending them to the various parties taking part therein;

(6) publication of statements of position in the manner to be prescribed as an alternative to serving them on shareholders;

(7) the manner of supervising the performance of the provisions of this Article, including in respect of the obligation to keep registers of the performance of prescribed provisions;
