Q1. Why is the managing director up for
election today as most CEOs access the exemption from the 3 year election cycle
offered by the Corporations Act. Will the executive chair utilise this
exemption in future years?
Answer: the CFO and company secretary explained that the CEO will only be elected once at the start of his and the executive chair will continue to be elected every 3 years. See video of exchange via Twitter.
Q2. Thanks to Kristy for providing detailed written responses to the questions I asked last year and thanks also for publishing a webcast of last year's AGM. You are also doing well by offering a hybrid AGM today, something the likes of Fortescue Metals and Rio Tinto sometimes fail to deliver. You have also done well by declaring the proxy position to the ASX with the formal address and there were no major protest votes. All up, this is very good. I'm off to another AGM where hard questions are warranted. Keep up the good work.
Answer: Not asked, for some strange reason.
