Notice of AGM and Director Resignation


Berkeley Energia Limited ("Berkeley" or the "Company") advises that attached to this announcement is the 2020 Notice of Annual General Meeting ("AGM") which is to be held at held at the Conference Room, 28 The Esplanade, Perth, Western Australia on Wednesday, 25 November 2020 at 12pm (AWST).


A usual item of business at the AGM is the re-election of Directors in accordance with clause 6.3 of the Company's Constitution. In relation to this, Mr Nigel Jones has advised the Company that he will not be standing for re-election as a Director due to corporate governance requirements at Rio Tinto, where he currently holds the position of Managing Director of the Simandou iron ore project, which do not allow Mr Jones to sit on other publicly listed boards. Mr Jones will resign as a Director of the Company following the completion of the AGM.


The Board would like to take this opportunity to thank Mr Jones for his significant contribution to the Company and wish him well with his future business endeavours. 


Notice of AGM and Proxy Form


The Notice of AGM, explanatory memorandum and proxy form is being made available to shareholders electronically which can be viewed and downloaded online from the Company's website at www.berkeleyenergia.com/investor-relations/company-reports/.


The Company will not be sending shareholders a hard copy of the Notice of AGM by post ahead of the AGM. This approach is consistent with the relief provided by the Australian Treasurer in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.


The Board is closely monitoring the rapidly changing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. The health of the Company's Shareholders, employees and other stakeholders is of paramount importance.


While the Board would like to host all Shareholders in person, in order to minimise the risk to Shareholders and to the Company and its ongoing operations, the Company suggests that Shareholders do not attend the AGM in person.


Accordingly, the Directors strongly encourage all Shareholders to lodge Proxy Forms prior to the AGM. The Company advises that a poll will be conducted for each of the Resolutions.


The Board will continue to monitor Australian Government restrictions on public gatherings. If it becomes necessary or appropriate to make alternative arrangements to those set out in the Notice of AGM, the Company will notify Shareholders accordingly via the Company's website at www.berkeleyenergia.com and the ASX announcements platform.
