Set out below is the wording of a proposed resolution that has been requisitioned by approximately 120 AGL Energy Limited (AGL) shareholders under section 249N of the Corporations Act for consideration at AGL’s Annual General Meeting to be held on 30 September 2015.
The ASX Listing Rules require AGL to lodge these details within two business days of receipt of the proposed resolution.
Special Resolution to amend the constitution:
That, at the end of Clause 31 ‘Notice’ the following new sub-clause 31.5 is inserted: “That, (a) the board must prepare a business model that demonstrates sufficient diversification of the power generation and supply activities of the company to ensure continued profitability under pathways that limit the world to 2˚C warming; and (b) include in future annual reporting to shareholders, at reasonable cost and omitting any proprietary information, information about ongoing power generation and supply chain emissions management benchmarked against that model.
AGL respects the right of shareholders to requisition the resolution, which seeks to amend the company’s constitution.
AGL's Notice of Annual General Meeting will include guidance on the Board's recommendation on each resolution to be considered at the meeting.
