In light of current UK Government lockdown restrictions, it is currently envisaged that the AGM will be run as a closed meeting with the minimum number of shareholders present to ensure that the meeting is quorate. Shareholders are requested not to attend the Company’s office for the meeting in person but instead encouraged to attend the meeting via an online webinar. Shareholders who wish to attend the meeting in this way should register with the Company at email@example.com to be sent relevant access details. The online webinar will not include facility for attendees to vote live and, accordingly, all shareholders are encouraged to vote by proxy and appoint the Chairman of the meeting as their proxy for this purpose (rather than their own choice of person).
Shareholders will not receive a form of proxy for the AGM in the post. Instead, they may submit proxy votes electronically using the Share Portal Service at www.signalshares.com, as set out in the notes to the notice of the AGM. Alternatively, a hard copy proxy form may be requested directly from the Company’s registrars, Link Asset Services, 34 Beckenham Road, Kent, BR3 4TU (telephone number: 0371 664 0300).
