PROXY STATEMENT

 

General

 

The board of directors of the Company (the “Board of Directors”) is soliciting proxies for an annual general meeting of shareholders (the “AGM”) to be held at the Conference Room, 5th Floor, Block C, Shimao, No. 92 Jianguo Road, Chaoyang District, Beijing 100020, People’s Republic of China at 10:00 a.m. (Beijing Time) on December 28, 2018.

 

Purpose of the AGM

 

The purpose of the AGM is to seek shareholders’ approval of the proposal to ratify the appointment of Deloitte Touch Tohmatsu as the Company’s independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019 (the “Proposal”).

 

Record Date

 

Our Board of Directors has fixed the close of business on November 26, 2018 (Cayman Islands Time) as the record date (the “Record Date”) for determining the shareholders entitled to receive notice of, and to attend and vote at, the AGM or any adjourned or postponed meeting thereof.

 

Accordingly, only shareholders registered in the register of members of the Company at the close of business on the Record Date are entitled to attend and vote at the AGM or at any adjournment that may take place. The register of members of the Company will not be closed. Holders of the Company’s American Depositary Shares (“ADSs”) who wish to exercise their voting rights for the underlying shares represented by their ADSs must act through Citibank, N.A., the depositary of the Company’s ADSs, and should give voting instructions to Citibank, N.A. accordingly.

 

Quorum

 

The quorum required for the AGM consists of one or more shareholders present in person or by proxy or, if a corporation or other non-natural person, by its duly authorized representative, who together hold shares which carry in aggregate not less than one-third of all votes attaching to all issued and outstanding ordinary shares of our Company that carry the right to vote at the AGM.

 

Voting Required

 

Each ordinary share of the Company in issue on the Record Date is entitled to one vote per share. The Proposal to be passed by the shareholders requires the affirmative vote of a simple majority of the votes attached to the ordinary shares of the Company cast by those shareholders entitled to vote who are present in person or by proxy or, if a corporation or other non-natural person, by its duly authorized representative, at the AGM.

 


 

The voting results will be announced at the AGM and published in the Company’s report on Form 6-K to be furnished to the SEC after the AGM.

 

Solicitation

 

The costs of soliciting proxies will be borne by the Company. Proxies may be solicited by certain of the Company’s directors, officers and regular employees, without additional compensation, in person or by telephone or electronic mail. Copies of solicitation materials will be furnished to banks, brokerage houses, fiduciaries and custodians holding in their names the ordinary shares or ADSs beneficially owned by others to forward to those beneficial owners.

 

Voting by Holders of Ordinary Shares

 

When proxies are properly dated, executed, and returned by holders of ordinary shares, the ordinary shares they represent will be voted at the AGM in accordance with the instructions of the relevant shareholders. If no specific instructions are given by such holders, or in the case of broker’s non-votes, the ordinary shares will be voted at the discretion of the holder of such proxies.

 

Abstentions by holders of ordinary shares are included in the determination of the number of ordinary shares present for the purpose of quorum but are not counted as votes for or against a proposal. Any representative of a corporate shareholder attending the AGM would need to produce a letter/board resolutions showing the authorization to represent such shareholder to the Company.

 

Any proxy given pursuant to this solicitation may be revoked by the person giving it at any time before its use by delivering a written notice of revocation or a duly executed proxy bearing a later date, or by attending the AGM and voting in person. A written notice of revocation or a duly executed proxy bearing a later date must be delivered to the attention of the Company no later than 48 hours prior to the AGM.

 

Voting by Holders of ADSs

 

We have requested Citibank, N.A., as depositary of the ADSs, to deliver to all owners of ADSs the ADS voting instruction cards. Upon timely receiving a duly completed ADS voting instruction card from an owner of the ADSs, Citibank, N.A. will endeavor, in so far as practicable, to vote or cause to be voted the amount of ordinary shares represented by such ADSs in accordance with the instructions set forth in the ADS voting instruction card.

 

If Citibank, N.A. does not receive the voting instructions from an owner of ADSs on or before the date set forth in the ADS voting instruction card, such owner of ADSs, under the terms of the deposit agreement, dated as of November 2, 2017, by and among the Company, Citibank, N.A. and all holders and beneficial owners from time to time of the ADSs issued thereunder, will be deemed to have instructed Citibank, N.A. to give a discretionary proxy to a person designated by the Company to vote the amount of ordinary shares represented by such ADSs unless the Company informs Citibank, N.A. that it does not wish such proxy to be given, that substantial opposition exists to the matters to be voted on at the AGM or that such matters would have a material adverse impact on the holders of the ordinary shares.

 


 

PROPOSAL — RATIFICATION OF APPOINTMENT OF INDEPENDENT AUDITOR

 

Our audit committee of the Board of Directors (the “Audit Committee”) and our Board of Directors have resolved, that Deloitte Touch Tohmatsu (“Deloitte”) be appointed as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019.

 

We are asking our shareholders to ratify the appointment of Deloitte as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019. If such appointment is not ratified, the Audit Committee will consider whether it is appropriate to select another registered public accounting firm. Even if the appointment is ratified, the Audit Committee in its discretion may select a different registered public accounting firm at any time if it determines that such a change would be in the best interests of the Company and our shareholders.

 

The ratification of the appointment of Deloitte as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019 requires the affirmative vote of a simple majority of the votes attached to the ordinary shares cast by those shareholders entitled to vote who are present in person or by proxy at the AGM.

 

The Board of Directors recommends a vote FOR ratification of the appointment of Deloitte as our independent registered public accounting firm for the fiscal year ending March 31, 2019.

 

Annual Report

 

The Company will provide a hard copy of its annual report on Form 20-F for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2018, free of charge, to its shareholders upon request. Requests should be directed to the Company’s IR Department via email at ir@hexindai.com.
