Our 2023 Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held at the offices of Slaughter and May, One Bunhill Row, London EC1Y 8YY at 10.30am on Thursday 29 June 2023.
Notice of the AGM can be found at the bottom of this webpage and contains the proposed resolutions on which you are invited to vote.
Voting at the AGM
Only holders of Ordinary shares or their proxies or duly authorised representatives may vote at the AGM. All of your votes are important to us and, once again this year, you will be asked to vote on each of the resolutions on a poll, as permitted by the Articles of Association.
If you are unable to attend the AGM, you can still be represented at the meeting by appointing a proxy to act on your behalf and by giving instructions on how you wish to vote. Whether or not you propose to attend the AGM, we would encourage you to vote on the proposed resolutions by appointing a proxy to ensure that your vote is counted if you are unable, for any reason, to attend on the day. Appointing a proxy will not prevent you from attending the meeting and voting in person if you so choose.
The Board recognises the importance of the AGM to shareholders and is keen to ensure you are able to exercise your rights to engage and participate in the meeting. Shareholders or their appointed proxies who attend the AGM will be able to ask questions on the business of the meeting. All shareholders (irrespective of whether or not they propose to attend) are also invited to ask questions on the business of the AGM in advance of the meeting. You can ask your questions in advance by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org, or by writing to the Company Secretary at our registered office address. The Company Secretary will respond to those questions and publish answers on the Company’s website. To ensure the answers are published before the proxy appointment deadline, questions must be received before 5.00pm UK time on Monday 19 June 2023.
Your Directors consider that the proposed resolutions as set out in the Notice and to be put to the meeting will promote the success of the Company and are in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders as a whole, and accordingly, unanimously recommend that you vote in favour of them as they intend to do so in respect of their own beneficial shareholdings (other than in respect of resolutions in which they hold an interest).
