Frequently Asked Questions (FAQs)
1. What are share registry services?
Share registry services encompass everything from being a share registrar, organising shareholders’ meetings, arranging payment of dividends and interests, liaising with the Bursa Malaysia Depository Sdn Bhd, and more.
Having offered share registry services for years, we understand that there is no one-size-fits-all solution. We offer tailored and customisable share registry services to set your business up for success.
2. What does a share registrar do?
A share registrar is the appointed service provider that maintains the Register of Members and Records of Depositors from the Bursa Depository.
3. What are the legal requirements of an annual general meeting?
Under the Companies Act 1965, all Malaysian companies are required to hold their first annual general meeting (AGM) within 18 months of being incorporated. Following this, one AGM is required per financial year. Satisfying the quorum of 2 members (minimum number of participants), you are required to show an annual financial report, directors report, and auditors report.
4. When should annual general meetings be held?
Annual general meetings should be held each year, no longer than 15 months after the previous one.
5. How is a virtual AGM conducted?
Virtual AGMs are conducted in largely the same manner as a physical meeting, but without the need of a physical venue. As the core objective is to vote on critical company’s decisions, a secure platform is required to ensure success. With the help of BoardRoom, you can run a virtual AGM through secure and safe software.
6. Why do I need a share registrar?
Share Registrars manage the Records of Depositors from the Bursa Depository for Public Listed Companies or the Register of Members for Public Non-Listed companies respectively. The range of activities includes managing companies’ corporate exercises, i.e. payments of dividends and interests, Rights Issue, Bonus Issue and conducting AGM’s / EGM’s, just to name a few.
