Chairman's AGM script: voting on a show of hands
Chairman's script for use at an annual general meeting (AGM) of a listed company, where voting is conducted on a show of hands. The script includes opening and closing statements, a summary of the typical resolutions proposed at an AGM and an explanation of key procedural matters. It also includes schedules with links to a number of separate additional provisions that may be included, such as conducting a manual poll when demanded by the chairman or from members, taking questions at the outset, and how to address and respond to difficult issues that may be raised at an AGM.
For a script where voting is done by way of a poll, see Standard document, Chairman's AGM script: voting on a poll.
