KUALA LUMPUR: A technical glitch faced by the remote participation and voting facility provider, Tricor Investor and Issuing House Services Sdn Bhd (Tricor), triggered Maybank to reschedule its virtual 61st annual general meeting (AGM) of shareholders.
In a statement, Maybank chairman Tan Sri Zamzamzairani Mohd Isa said the bank will notify its shareholders and Bursa Malaysia for the new meeting date in due course.
“The bank would like to convey its deepest apologies to all shareholders for the inconvenience caused and will be notifying them of the new meeting date in due course.
“We appreciate that our shareholders had taken time to try to login today to follow the proceedings of the meeting and wish to assure all of them that we will be reaching out to them to update them of the next meeting arrangements, ” he said.
In a separate statement, Tricor explained the root cause of the issue has been identified, rectified as well as tested for its efficacy.
“The inconvenience to our clients and business partners is deeply regretted and all steps are being taken to ensure that all our forthcoming virtual AGMs proceed smoothly.
“Tricor Malaysia will continue to forge ahead as well as develop our capacity and capability to spearhead the digital transformation of Corporate Malaysia, ” it added.
Last year, parent company Hong-Kong-based Tricor Group embarked on a full-spectrum digital strategy by working with technology companies to serve its customers amid the Covid-19 global environment.
