General Meeting of Shareholders Goes Online

In light of the approaching deadline for public companies to hold their annual GMS, the Indonesian Financial Services Authority (Otoritas Jasa Keuangan or "OJK") issued two new regulations this week on general meeting of shareholders ("GMS") of public companies, namely OJK Regulation No. 15/POJK.04/2020 ("POJK 15") and OJK Regulation No. 16/POJK.04/2020 ("POJK 16"). POJK 15 and POJK 16 allow public companies to hold their GMS virtually ("e-GMS") through an e-GMS system provided by an e-GMS provider.

In addition, both regulations enable the granting of an electronic proxy ("e-Proxy") through the e-GMS system. While AHP has discussed the e-proxy mechanism in its previous client update, certain provisions have been adjusted in POJK 16 to facilitate the implementation of the e-GMS better.
