2020 Annual General Meeting
The 2020 Annual General Meeting will be held on Wednesday, 20 May 2020 at 10.00 am (British Summer Time) at the offices of the Company at 22 Chapter Street, London, SW1P 4NP.
Arrangements for the AGM in light of COVID-19
The Board is continuously monitoring the ongoing situation with regard to the COVID-19 pandemic and taking action in line with the latest Government public health instructions. Whilst the AGM is an important event for the Company, the health of our shareholders, workforce and officers is paramount. On the basis that the current compulsory social distancing measures put in place by the UK Government, which, amongst other things, prohibit public gatherings of more than two people, and non-essential travel will remain in place at the time of the AGM, shareholders will not be permitted to attend the AGM in person and should vote by way of proxy. Further details are provided in the Notice of AGM.
The Board would normally welcome the AGM as an opportunity to listen to and respond to your questions in person. Shareholders may instead submit questions to the Board prior to the AGM by emailing the Company Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org with the subject line “2020 AGM”. Subject to the volume of questions received from shareholders, all questions will be answered on the website shortly after the AGM.
As it will not be possible for shareholders to cast their vote at the AGM, we strongly encourage all shareholders to vote by proxy as soon as possible and, in any event, by no later than 10:00 am on Monday, 18 May 2020. The voting results of all resolutions put before the AGM will be announced to the market following the Meeting.
We will continue to update shareholders on arrangements for the AGM, particularly as regards any relaxation of the Government measures. Shareholders are advised to check the website for updates.
