Foremostly it will be looking for approval for the asset sale agreement executed yesterday to acquire Lumex Electrical.
Stokes will seek shareholder approval to raise up to $3.48 million through the placement of 17.4 million shares priced at 20 cents.
Finally, the company will propose to change its name to Enevis Limited, which better describes Stokes’ renewed focus on energy efficiency with vision.
“embarking on the next phase of its growth agenda”
Stokes’ executive chairman Peter Jinks said: “Stokes is excited to extend its product offerings with the addition of the Lumex suite of quality brands and we welcome the experience and expertise that Mr Erik Scholz will bring to the group.
“Stokes is embarking on the next phase of its growth agenda with a focus to leverage its combined expertise in audio visual, lighting, solutions architecture and deliver energy efficient outcomes to its customers.
“The group intends to bring new technologies to market which target this growing sector.
“We believe Lumex intellectual property, brands, technology partners and 'blue chip' customers will in turn benefit directly from complimentary products which already form part of the Stokes portfolio, and that the end result will be for Stokes to have a seamless energy efficient lighting and AV solution for the commercial, Industrial and Infrastructure markets."
