Non-WVR shareholders must be entitled to cast at least 10% of the votes that are eligible to be cast on resolutions at the listed issuer's general meetings.

Note 1: Compliance with this rule means, for example, that an issuer cannot list with a WVR structure that attaches 100% of the right to vote at general meetings to the beneficiaries of weighted voting rights.
Note 2: A beneficiary of weighted voting rights must not take any action that would result in a non-compliance with this rule.
