Annual General Meeting
The 2023 AGM will be held at Storey Club, 100 Liverpool Street, London, EC2M 2AT on 25 May 2023 at 2.00 p.m.
After the disruption to our normal meeting format over the last three years, the Company is pleased to invite shareholders to attend the Company’s 2023 AGM in person.
For reasons of cost and logistics we are not offering the option of virtual participation in this year’s AGM, but the Board recognises that some shareholders may still have reservations about attending the meeting in person. We also recognise that the AGM is an important event for shareholders in the corporate calendar, and we are committed to ensuring that shareholders can exercise their right to vote and ask questions in connection with this meeting. Accordingly, for those shareholders that do not wish to attend, or those that wish to attend and are unable to do so, questions in connection with the business of the AGM can be submitted on reasonable notice in advance of the meeting by email to email@example.com. In so far as relevant to the business of the meeting questions will be responded to by email and taken into account as appropriate at the meeting itself.
Shareholders wishing to vote on any of the matters of business at the AGM are encouraged to submit their votes as soon as possible, and in any event no later than the relevant deadline, 2.00 p.m. on 23 May 2023, through the proxy and electronic voting facilities. Voting at the AGM will be carried out by way of a poll so that the votes cast in advance by all shareholders appointing the Chair of the Meeting as their proxy can be taken into account. As is usual, the results of the AGM will be announced as soon as practical after it has taken place.
