In today’s context, requirements for the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders (AGM) go further. AGM must take place within a specific range of time, comply with social distancing and especially, be more cost-effective than previous years. This puts extra pressure on enterprises, but also opens up opportunities for those quickly adapting to the rise of modern technology.
According to clause 2, article 136, Law on Enterprise 2014, AGM must be convened once a year, and within 04 months from the end of the fiscal year. Frequently, Vietnam-based public enterprises have their fiscal year end on December 31. It means the AGM must take place before April 30 of the next year. If businesses look for an extension to the deadline, they must hold AGM before June 30.
The AGM is also the time when shareholders review the company’s financial performance, lay down the road ahead and update dividend policy. Therefore, businesses find it increasingly difficult to postpone AGM this year.
In difficulty lies opportunity
Currently, a number of enterprises have moved their AGM online after years of traditional meetings because of its benefits.
“If you used to organize an AGM before, you know full well how much time this meeting consumes, and how much workload it puts on the HR department. They have to prepare Annual Report, AGM agenda, data, design, and confirm attendance, just to mention a few,” said Ms. Nong Vuong Phi – HR expert, Founder and CEO at Phi&P
