Convocation of Extraordinary General Meeting of Shareholders
On November 18, 2022, the Board of Directors of DoubleDown Interactive Co., Ltd. (the Company) resolved to convene an extraordinary general meeting of shareholders (the EGM). The details of the EGM are as follows:
Date and time: December 28, 2022, 11:00 a.m. (Korea Standard Time) / December 27, 2022, 9:00 p.m. (Eastern Time, USA)
Who can attend: Holders of the Companys common shares as of December 5, 2022 (the Record Date). Holders of American Depositary Share (the ADSs), each representing 0.05 of a common share of the Company, as of the Record Date (ADS Holders) may not attend in person or vote at the EGM. Instead, ADS Holders will need to instruct Citibank, N.A., the depositary of the ADSs (the Depositary), as to how to vote the common shares represented by the ADSs. ADS Holders who wish to attend or vote directly at the EGM must cancel their respective ADSs in exchange for the common shares of the Company, which cancellation and exchange must be completed prior to the Record Date, and therefore, such ADS Holders will need to deliver their ADSs to the Depositary for cancellation with sufficient time prior to the Record Date to allow for the subsequent exchange of their ADSs for the underlying common shares before the Record Date.
Venue: Meeting room, 13th floor, 152 Teheran-Ro, Gangnam-gu, Seoul
Methods of attending: ADS Holders should send the Depositary their voting instructions using the ADS voting card as separately instructed. The Depositary expects to mail voting instructions to ADS Holders on or about December 13, 2022.
Proposal to be presented and considered at the EGM:
Proposal No. 1: Transfer of retained earnings from capital surplus
Agenda details: Approval of a reduction of the Companys capital reserve in the amount of KRW330 billion pursuant to Article 461-2 of the Korean Commercial Code.
