Special Business of the Meeting

Change of Company Name

On 28 June 2019, AIM Group assigned the “AIM” and “Australian Institute of Management” trademarks to the Australian Institute of Management Education & Training Limited, in keeping with AIM Group’s strategy to rebrand the membership organisation as the Institute of Managers and Leaders.

In order to further strengthen the Institute of Managers and Leaders branding and recognition and to prevent confusion, the Board proposes that the AIM Group change its company name so as to accord with the branding of the Institute of Managers and Leaders by removing any reference to “AIM” or “Australian Institute of Managers” in AIM Group’s company name.

AIM Group successfully introduced the “IML” / “Institute of Managers and Leaders” branding in Australia and New Zealand approximately 2 ½ years ago and the Institute is now widely recognised under the new branding.

Special resolution

To consider and, if in favour, to pass the following as a special resolution:

In accordance with section 157(1) of the Corporations Act 2001 (Cth), the Company changed its name to “Institute of Managers and Leaders Limited” and that the relevant documents, including, but, not limited to, a Form 205 Notification of Resolution, be prepared for execution by the Company Secretary of the Company and be lodged with the Australian Securities and Investments Commission to record the change of name.
