Do You Know Who Is Nominated By Adelaide Brighton For The Election Of New Director?

Adelaide Brighton accepts the nomination of Rhonda Barro made by its major shareholder Barro Properties Pty Ltd to join the ABC’s Board. The election for new Director to the Board is scheduled to be held at the Adelaide’s Annual General Meeting due on 10 May 2019.

Ms. Rhonda Barro is an Executive Director at the Barro Group, a fully integrated manufacturer and supplier of premixed concrete, quarry products and a range of associated products. The Barro Properties and its associates hold majority stakes in Adelaide Brighton Limited (ASX: ABC) that accounts to the relevant interest of 43% of the Adelaide’s issued capital.

Two of the existing Adelaide’s Directors are nominees of Barro Properties. Moreover, the company informed that two of the current independent non-executive Directors are required to retire and, if willing, seek re-election at the AGM, in accordance with its constitution. But if the new Director is appointed and the independent Directors standing for election are not re-elected, the Board will no longer consist of a majority of independent Directors.

But as per regulatory requirements, Adelaide is required to maintain the majority number of independent Directors on the Board. For this purpose, the company is reportedly in talks with Barro Properties in order to discuss Board composition and any appropriate governance protocols in the lead up to the AGM.
