Results of Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders 

At the Depa Ltd Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders, held yesterday at 6:00pm, shareholders passed all resolutions. 

CHANGE OF OWNERSHIP RULE 
Special Resolution 1: 
The Chairman proposed that the 51% ownership rule be changed, so that the requirement can be met by GCC nationals instead of only UAE nationals. 

99.53% of the votes cast in person and by proxy at the EGM voted in favour. 


SHARE BUYBACK PROPOSAL 
Special Resolution 2: 
The Chairman proposed that the Board of Directors be granted the power to approve and implement a share buyback proposal at any time or times within 12 months of the EGM at such prices as may be permitted by the rules of the DIFX, as they, in their absolute discretion, think fit. 

99.53% of the votes cast in person and by proxy at the EGM voted in favour. 


REDENOMINATION IN UAE DIRHAMS 
Special Resolution 3: 
The Chairman proposed that, as the Board of Directors feels appropriate, the ordinary share capital of the Company be redenominated from US Dollars to UAE Dirhams, and that the Board of Directors have power to implement such redenomination as they see fit, including, without limitation, in relation to the selection of an appropriate exchange rate and the mechanism for dealing with fractional entitlements. 

99.30% of the votes cast in person and by proxy at the EGM voted in favour. 

To pass a special resolution, such number of votes must be passed in favour of the resolution which equal at least 75% of all the votes cast (in person or by proxy) at a general meeting.
