Bonso Electronics announces annual shareholder meeting and Internet availability of proxy materials

BVI-registered Bonso Electronics International Inc. has announced in the end of October that the Annual General Meeting of Shareholders for the fiscal year ended March 31, 2007, will be held on November 29, 2007. The record date for shareholders entitled to vote at the Annual General Meeting will be October 19, 2007.

BVI company will be following an approach similar to the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission’s new rules, for making proxy materials available over the Internet. Bonso Electronics believes that this approach will allow it to reduce the number of printed copies of its proxy materials this year, by more than 90%, and at the same time lower the cost and reduce the environmental impact of producing and delivering these materials.

Anthony So, chairman of Bonso Electronics International, Inc., has said: “The Internet presents the fairest and most direct mechanism for the dissemination of all information — investor information is no different… Providing our proxy materials over the Internet, with printed materials on request only, increases the transparency of our business, reduces what we introduce into the waste stream, and simultaneously pares down the needless expense of paper filings. Everyone wins.”

Under this approach, Bonso Electronics will deliver a “Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials”, instead of delivering a printed set of proxy materials to each shareholder. The BVI company will also provide Internet access to the proxy materials for stockholders, and provide a printed set of proxy materials by mail to any stockholder who requests them.

The annual report of Bonso has been already filed, and may be viewed on Bonso’s website. Shareholders may obtain free copies of company’s proxy materials by following the instructions provided in the “Notice of Internet Availability of Proxy Materials”.
