C. Procedure for voting by proxy
Each shareholder participates in the General Meeting and vote either in person or by proxy. A proxy acting as a delegate for more than one shareholders may vote in a different manner for each shareholder. Legal entities may participate in the General Meeting by appointing one to three natural persons as their proxies.
A shareholder may appoint a proxy for a single General Meeting or for any General Meeting that may occur within a specified period of time. The proxy votes according to the shareholder’s instructions, if any, and is obligated to maintain a record of voting instructions for at least one (1) year as from the submission of the minutes of the General Meeting to the relevant competent authority, or as from the resolution’s recording in the Register of Sociétés Anonymes, should the resolution is subject to publication. Failure of the proxy to comply with the instructions he has received, does not affect the status of the General Meeting’s resolutions, even if the delegate’s vote was instrumental in their adoption.
A shareholder’s proxy is obligated to inform the Company, prior to the beginning of the session of the General Meeting, of any specific event, which may be useful to shareholders to evaluate the risk of the proxy serving interests other than the shareholder's interests. Conflict of interest may result when the proxy: a) is shareholder exercising control over the Company or is another legal person or entity controlled by such shareholder, or b) is a member of the Board of Directors or of the Company's management or of a shareholder exercising control over the Company or other legal person or entity controlled by the shareholder who exercises control on the Company, or c) is employee or chartered auditor of the Company or shareholder
exercising control on the Company or other legal person or entity controlled by a shareholder, who exercises control on the Company, or d) is spouse or first degree relative to one of the natural persons mentioned above under cases a' to c'.
The appointment and the revocation of a shareholder’s proxy is made in writing and is notified to the Company in the same manner, at least three (3) days prior to the date of session of the Ordinary General Meeting.
Each shareholder may appoint up to three (3) proxies. However, if a shareholder holds Company shares appearing in more than one securities’ accounts, this restriction does not prevent the shareholder from appointing separate proxies for shares appearing in each securities’ account as regards the Ordinary General Meeting.
The Company makes available on its website (www.intralot.com) the form to be used for appointing a proxy. The shareholder should submit this form completed and signed, to the Shareholder Services Department of the Company, at the address: 64, Kifisias Ave. and 3, Premetis St., at Maroussi, Attica or fax it to: +30 2106106800, at least three (3) days prior to the date of the Ordinary General Meeting. The beneficiary is kindly requested to confirm that the proxy’s appointment form is successfully dispatched and received by the Company and, for this purpose, to contact the company at the telephone nr: +30 2106156000 (Shareholder Services Department).
The Company's Articles of Association does not foresee the possibility of participation of the shareholders in the General Meeting by electronic means, without the physical presence of shareholders at its premise or the distance participation of shareholders in the voting process either by electronic means or via post, and may not appoint or recall a proxy by electronic means, as no relevant Ministerial Resolutions determining the minimum technical specifications for safeguarding the id of the shareholder and the safety of the electronic or other connection, have been issued.
