Relevant shareholders[2] of Kitchen Culture Holdings Ltd. today announced that they wish to reiterate and clarify to all shareholders of the Company on the following:

1. EGM to proceed on 1 November 2022, 9am as planned;
2. Relevant Shareholders had on 14 October 2022, at about 5pm, informed Kitchen Culture of the requisition of EGM;
3. Notice of EGM on a major local English newspaper was published on the 16 October 2022 edition of the Sunday Times.
4. To date (as at 24 October 2022, 6pm), Kitchen Culture has failed to announce the Notice of EGM, requisitioned by shareholders under Section 177 of the Company Act 1967, which is a clear breach of Catalist Rule 704 of the SGX Listing Manual;
5. Relevant shareholders do not need to send the Notice of EGM and Proxy Form to all Kitchen Culture’s shareholders by post, due to current exemptions[3] related to COVID-19. This exemption was also applied in the previous Annual General Meeting of the Company held in March 2022.

The Relevant shareholders said, “We encourage all shareholders of Kitchen Culture to vote at the EGM, either in person on 1 November 2022 (9am), or by proxy by 30 October 2022 (9am). Your votes matter and will determine the composition of the leadership and strategic direction of the company going forward.”

The new Board of Directors if elected, is committed to ensure the completion of the Special Audit to clear Kitchen Culture’s outstanding issues and to comply with the Notice of Compliance, paving the way for the resumption of trading in Kitchen Culture shares, which has been suspended since 12 July 2021.
