Due to the constantly evolving Covid-19 situation in Singapore, we may be required to change our arrangements for the AGM at short notice. Shareholders are encouraged to check the abovementioned websites for the latest updates on the status of the AGM.


As a precautionary measure due to the current Covid-19 situation in Singapore, shareholders will not be able to attend the AGM in person. Pursuant to the Covid-19 (Temporary Measures) (Alternative Arrangements for Meetings for Companies, Variable Capital Companies, Business Trusts, Unit Trusts and Debenture Holders) Order 2020, DBSH has the option to hold a virtual meeting even where DBSH is permitted, under and subject to compliance with the prescribed safe management measures, to hold a physical meeting. As a precautionary measure to keep physical interactions and Covid-19 transmission risk to a minimum, DBSH will not be providing for physical attendance by shareholders at the AGM.
