AGM Resolution 16 clarification
15 May 2020
888 Holdings Public Limited Company
('888', the 'Group')
Clarification regarding AGM Resolution 16: Amendment to Memorandum & Articles of Association of 888 Holdings plc to allow for electronic or hybrid electronic/physical General Meetings in exceptional circumstances
The Board of 888 Holdings plc notes input received from some investors regarding the amendment to the Memorandum & Articles of Association to enable the Company to convene virtual-only General Meetings as permitted by the laws of Gibraltar.
The Board wishes clearly to state that the sole reason for the proposal contained in Resolution 16 at the Group's forthcoming AGM is to enable shareholders to join meetings remotely, where there may be exceptional circumstances that would constrain or prevent physical public gatherings, such as the COVID-19 outbreak.
The Board values stakeholder engagement and wishes to clarify that it has no intention whatsoever to hold virtual-only meetings in normal (non-exceptional) circumstances. The Board believes that allowing shareholders to participate in virtual meetings in truly exceptional circumstances would be in the best interests of shareholders and enable ongoing shareholder participation where they may be restrictions on movement.
