General Meetings

The company holds an Annual General Meeting (‘AGM’) of its shareholders each year. Extraordinary General Meetings (‘EGM’) are held as and when required.

Registered shareholders are normally entitled to attend, ask questions and vote on various company matters at the General Meetings. If the registered shareholder cannot attend, they may appoint a proxy to exercise all or any of their rights on their behalf. Due to the social distancing measures required in response to the COVID-19 outbreak the Company has decided that the 2020 AGM will be a closed meeting with the minimum quorum necessary to conduct the business of the meeting. No other shareholders will be permitted to attend the meeting in person.  Accordingly, shareholders of the Company will be restricted from attending the AGM in person or by attorney or by corporate representative and anyone seeking to attend the meeting in person will be refused entry.

Instead of attending the AGM, shareholders are urged to exercise their votes by submitting their proxy as explained in the Notice of AGM.

Voting

To be effective, a proxy form must be deposited with Share Registrars Limited, The Courtyard, 17 West Street, Farnham, Surrey GU9 7DR (or scanned and sent via email to voting@shareregistrars.uk.com) not less than 48 hours before the time fixed for the meeting. For the 2020 AGM shareholders are encouraged to appoint the chairman of the AGM as their proxy rather than a named person who will not be permitted to attend the physical meeting.

Details of the voting results will be published on this website.

Date and Location

The next Annual General Meeting will be held on Friday 30 October 2020.
