In case there is no compliance with the provisions of article 28a of the codified law 2190/1920, the shareholder in question participates in the General Assembly only upon its permission. The exercise of the rights in question (participation and voting) does not require the beneficiarys shares to be tied up or the holding of another respective procedure, which restricts the possibility of sale and transfer thereof during the period that goes by between the recording date and the date of the General Assembly.

The shareholders are not provided with the ability to participate in the General Assembly and exercise their voting right by electronic means, without the shareholders natural presence in the place, where it is held, or by correspondence, neither are they provided with the ability to appoint and revoke a representative by electronic means, since the Companys Memorandum of Association does not provide such procedure.
