Right to attend the Annual General Meeting through a proxy

Shareholders may attend the Company’s Annual General Meeting and exercise their voting rights personally or through a proxy. Persons acting on behalf of legal persons should present valid excerpts from relevant registers specifying persons authorised to represent the legal persons.

A proxy may exercise all the shareholder's rights at the Annual General Meeting, unless the power of proxy states otherwise. A proxy may grant further powers of proxy if permitted to do so under their power of proxy. A proxy may represent multiple shareholders and vote the shares of each shareholder differently. A shareholder whose shares are registered in more than one securities account may appoint a separate proxy to exercise the rights attached to the shares registered in each account. A shareholder whose shares are registered in an omnibus account may appoint separate proxies to exercise the rights attached to the shares registered in that account.

A power of proxy to attend the Annual General Meeting of Grupa Azoty S.A. and exercise voting rights must be in written or electronic form. As of the date of this notice, a form of electronic power of proxy is made available by the Company for downloading from https://tarnow.grupaazoty.com/.

Along with a notification of granting a power of proxy in electronic form, the shareholder must send in scanned copies of the granted power of proxy, ID cards, passports or other documents enabling identification of the shareholder as the principal and of the appointed proxy. Where the power of proxy is granted by a legal person or an organisation referred to in Art. 331 of the Civil Code, a scanned copy of the principal’s entry in the relevant register must also be submitted. Where the proxy is a legal person or an organisation referred to in Art. 331 of the Civil Code, a scanned copy of the proxy’s entry in the relevant register must also be submitted. Any documents submitted via electronic means and originally prepared in a foreign language should be accompanied by a certified translation into Polish. All the above documents should be sent to: ##lpact.ipgcdl#at#vgjeppodin.rdb##. Together with a notification of granting a power of proxy, the shareholder sends in an email address through which the Company will be able to communicate with the shareholder and the proxy. The Company may take appropriate steps aimed at identifying the shareholder and the proxy. The identification procedure may involve contacting the shareholder and the proxy via a return electronic message or a return call to confirm that the power of proxy has actually been granted. A power of proxy in electronic form does not need to be signed with a qualified electronic signature.

The procedure for identification of the principal applies accordingly to a notification of revoking a power of proxy. Proxy appointment or revocation notifications which are not compliant with the requirements set out above have no legal effect with respect to the Company.

It is the shareholder who decides on the way of granting a power of proxy and the Company is not liable for any errors in filled-in forms or actions by the holders of powers of proxy. Sending in the above documents in electronic form does not release the proxy from the obligation to produce his/her identification documents when the attendance list of persons authorised to participate in the Annual General Meeting of the Company is being prepared.

Right to participate in the Extraordinary General Meeting through a proxy
Shareholders may participate in the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company and exercise their voting rights personally or through a proxy.

A proxy may exercise all the rights of a shareholder at the Extraordinary General Meeting unless the power of proxy states otherwise. A proxy may grant further powers of proxy if permitted to do so under their power of proxy. A proxy may represent multiple shareholders and vote the shares of each shareholder differently. A shareholder whose shares are registered in more than one securities account may appoint a separate proxy to exercise the rights attached to the shares registered in each account. A shareholder whose shares are registered in an omnibus account may appoint separate proxies to exercise the rights attached to the shares registered in that account.

As of the date of this notice, a form of electronic power of proxy is made available by the Company for downloading from www.grupaazoty.com.

The procedure for identification of the principal applies accordingly to a notification of revoking a power of proxy. Proxy appointment or revocation notifications which are not compliant with the requirements set out above have no legal effect with respect to the Company.

It is the shareholder who decides on the way of granting a power of proxy and the Company is not liable for any errors in filled-in forms or actions by the holders of powers of proxy. Sending in the above documents in electronic form does not release the proxy from the obligation to produce his/her identification documents when the attendance list of persons authorised to participate in the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company is being prepared.

Right to participate in the Extraordinary General Meeting through a proxy

Shareholders may participate in the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company and exercise their voting rights personally or through a proxy.

A proxy may exercise all the rights of a shareholder at the Extraordinary General Meeting unless the power of proxy states otherwise. A proxy may grant further powers of proxy if permitted to do so under their power of proxy. A proxy may represent multiple shareholders and vote the shares of each shareholder differently. A shareholder whose shares are registered in more than one securities account may appoint a separate proxy to exercise the rights attached to the shares registered in each account. A shareholder whose shares are registered in an omnibus account may appoint separate proxies to exercise the rights attached to the shares registered in that account.

A power of proxy to participate in the Extraordinary General Meeting of Grupa Azoty S.A. and exercise voting rights must be in written or electronic form. As of the date of this notice, the Company makes a form of electronic power of proxy available for downloading from www.grupaazoty.com.

Right to participate in the General Meeting through a proxy

Shareholders may participate in the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company and exercise their voting rights personally or through a proxy. Persons acting on behalf of legal persons should present valid excerpts from relevant registers specifying persons authorised to represent the legal persons.

A proxy may exercise all the shareholder’s rights at the Extraordinary General Meeting, unless the power of proxy states otherwise. A proxy may grant further powers of proxy if permitted to do so under their power of proxy. A proxy may represent multiple shareholders and vote the shares of each shareholder differently. A shareholder whose shares are registered in more than one securities account may appoint a separate proxy to exercise the rights attached to the shares registered in each account. A shareholder whose shares are registered in an omnibus account may appoint separate proxies to exercise the rights attached to the shares registered in that account.

A power of proxy to participate in the Extraordinary General Meeting of Grupa Azoty S.A. and exercise voting rights must be in written or electronic form. As of the date of this notice, the Company makes a form of electronic power of proxy available for downloading from www.grupaazoty.com. The grant of a power of proxy in electronic form must be notified to the Company using electronic means of communication. Along with the notification of granting a power of proxy in electronic form, the shareholder must send in scanned copies of the granted power of proxy, ID cards, passports or other documents enabling identification of the shareholder as the principal and of the appointed proxy. Where the power of proxy is granted by a legal person or an organisation referred to in Art. 33 1 of the Civil Code, a scanned copy of the principal’s entry in the relevant register must also be submitted.

The identification procedure may involve contacting the shareholder and the proxy via a return electronic message or a return call to confirm that the power of proxy has actually been granted. A power of proxy in electronic form does not require a secure electronic signature verifiable by means of a valid qualified certificate.

The procedure for identification of the principal applies accordingly to a notification of revoking a power of proxy. Proxy appointment or revocation notifications which are not compliant with the requirements set out above have no legal effect with respect to the Company. It is the shareholder who decides on the way of granting a power of proxy and the Company is not liable for any errors in filled-in forms or actions by the holders of powers of proxy. Sending in the above documents in electronic form does not release the proxy from the obligation to produce his/her identification documents when the attendance list of persons authorised to participate in the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company is being prepared.

Right to participate in the General Meeting through a proxy

Shareholders may participate in the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company and exercise their voting rights personally or through a proxy. Persons acting on behalf of legal persons should present valid excerpts from relevant registers specifying persons authorised to represent the legal persons.
A proxy may exercise all the shareholder’s rights at the Extraordinary General Meeting, unless the power of proxy states otherwise. A proxy may grant further powers of proxy if permitted to do so under their power of proxy. A proxy may represent multiple shareholders and vote the shares of each shareholder differently. A shareholder whose shares are registered in more than one securities account may appoint a separate proxy to exercise the rights attached to the shares registered in each account. A shareholder whose shares are registered in an omnibus account may appoint separate proxies to exercise the rights attached to the shares registered in that account.
A power of proxy to participate in the Extraordinary General Meeting of Grupa Azoty S.A. and exercise voting rights must be in written or electronic form. As of the date of this notice, the Company makes a form of electronic power of proxy available for downloading from www.grupaazoty.com. The grant of a power of proxy in electronic form must be notified to the Company using electronic means of communication. Along with the notification of granting a power of proxy in electronic form, the shareholder must send in scanned copies of the granted power of proxy, ID cards, passports or other documents enabling identification of the shareholder as the principal and of the appointed proxy. Where the power of proxy is granted by a legal person or an organisation referred to in Art. 33[1] of the Civil Code, a scanned copy of the principal’s entry in the relevant register must also be submitted. Where the proxy is a legal person or an organisation referred to in Art. 33[1] of the Civil Code, a scanned copy of the proxy’s entry in the relevant register must also be submitted. Any documents submitted via electronic means and originally prepared in a foreign language should be accompanied by a certified translation into Polish. All the above documents should be sent in to: ##lpact.ipgcdl#at#vgjeppodin.rdb##. Together with a notification of granting a power of proxy, the shareholder sends in an email address through which the Company will be able to communicate with the shareholder and the proxy. The Company may take appropriate steps aimed at identifying the shareholder and the proxy. The identification procedure may involve contacting the shareholder and the proxy via a return electronic message or a return call to confirm that the power of proxy has actually been granted. A power of proxy in electronic form does not require a secure electronic signature verifiable by means of a valid qualified certificate.
The procedure for identification of the principal applies accordingly to a notification of revoking a power of proxy. Proxy appointment or revocation notifications which are not compliant with the requirements set out above have no legal effect with respect to the Company.
It is the shareholder who decides on the way of granting a power of proxy and the Company is not liable for any errors in filled-in forms or actions by the holders of powers of proxy. Sending in the above documents in electronic form does not release the proxy from the obligation to produce his/her identification documents when the attendance list of persons authorised to participate in the Extraordinary General Meeting of the Company is being prepared.

A shareholder or shareholders representing at least one-twentieth of the Company’s share capital may request that certain matters be placed on the agenda of the Extraordinary General Meeting.

Any documents submitted via electronic means and originally prepared in a foreign language should be accompanied by their certified translations into Polish. All the above documents should be sent in to: ##lpact.ipgcdl#at#vgjeppodin.rdb##. Together with a notification of granting a power of proxy, the shareholder sends in an email address through which the Company will be able to communicate with the shareholder and the proxy. The Company may take appropriate steps aimed at identifying the shareholder and the proxy. The identification procedure may involve contacting the shareholder and the proxy via a return electronic message or a return call to confirm that the power of proxy has actually been granted. A power of proxy in electronic form does not require a secure electronic signature verifiable by means of a valid qualified certificate.

The procedure for identification of the principal applies accordingly to a notification of revoking of powers of proxy. Proxy appointment or revocation notifications which are not compliant with the requirements set out above have no legal effect with respect to the Company.

It is the shareholder who decides on the way of granting the power of proxy and the Company is not liable for errors in filled-in forms or actions of holders of powers of proxy. Sending the above documents in electronic form does not release the proxy from the obligation to produce his/her identification documents when the attendance list of persons authorised to participate in the Annual General Meeting of the Company is being prepared.
