Draft me a Company Proxy

Based on the context provided, I can outline a general proxy form that aligns with the information from the Companies Act, No. 07 of 2007. Please note that this is a general template and should be adapted to meet the specific requirements of the company and the jurisdiction in which it operates. It is also important to consult with a legal professional to ensure that the proxy form complies with all relevant laws and regulations.


[Company Name]
[Company Address]

I/We, [Shareholder’s Full Name], of [Shareholder’s Address], being a member/members of the above-named company, hereby appoint [Proxy’s Full Name], of [Proxy’s Address], or failing him/her, [Alternate Proxy’s Name], of [Alternate Proxy’s Address], as my/our proxy to attend, speak, and vote on my/our behalf at the [Annual/Special] General Meeting of the Company to be held on [Date], and at any adjournment thereof.

Shares held: [Number of Shares]

I direct my proxy to vote as follows on the resolutions to be proposed at the meeting:

  • Resolution 1: [For/Against/Abstain]
  • Resolution 2: [For/Against/Abstain]
  • [Etc.]

Signed: ________________________
Date: _________________________


  1. A proxy need not be a member of the Company.
  2. To be effective, this proxy form, together with any authority under which it is signed or a notarially certified copy of that authority, must be lodged at the Company’s registered office not less than 48 hours before the time for holding the meeting or adjourned meeting at which the person named in the form proposes to vote.

This template is based on the information provided in the context, which specifies that a shareholder may appoint a proxy to attend and vote at a company meeting, and that the proxy has the same rights as the shareholder to vote on a show of hands or on a poll and to speak at the meeting. It also takes into account the requirement that the proxy form must be received by the company no more than 48 hours before the meeting for the appointment to be effective.

Please ensure that this form is reviewed and customized as necessary to comply with the company’s articles of association and any other applicable legal requirements.
