In particular, it should be noted that a person cannot have voting power in the Company of more than 10%, without obtaining regulatory and ministerial approvals. The relevant Minister has the power to request information to determine whether a person has a prohibited shareholding interest. If a person fails to furnish these details within the time specified or, in the opinion of the Minister, the information is false or misleading, then the Minister can declare the voting rights of those shares suspended. Voting rights All ordinary shares issued by Tabcorp Holdings Limited carry one vote per share. Tabcorp Bonds, Subordinated Notes and Performance Rights do not carry any rights to vote at general meetings of the Company's shareholders. Failure to comply with certain provisions of the Victorian Gambling Regulation Act 2003 or Tabcorp's Constitution, including the shareholder restrictions discussed above, may result in suspension of voting rights.
