Arrangements for Annual General Meeting

Arrangements for Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 23rd June 2021
The Company confirms that, following the UK Government's announcement on 14 June 2021 that Step 4 of its roadmap to lifting COVID-19 restrictions in England will be delayed by four weeks, in-person attendance at the AGM convened for 11.00 a.m. on Wednesday 23 June 2021 will, unfortunately, not be possible.
Attendance at the AGM will be limited to the quorum of two shareholders present in person or by proxy required to conduct the business of the meeting.
As wider physical attendance at the AGM will not be allowed, the Company urges shareholders to vote by proxy and to appoint the chairman of the meeting as their proxy for that purpose. If a shareholder appoints someone other than the chairman of the meeting as their proxy, that proxy will not be able to attend the AGM in person or cast the shareholder's vote. All votes on the resolutions contained in the notice of AGM will be held by poll, so that all proxy votes will be counted.
The Board recognises the need to engage with shareholders and all are invited to remotely participate in the meeting which will be live streamed at https://webcasting.buchanan.uk.com/broadcast/60cb41da5b7397619f827887.
A conference call line will be provided in the AGM Statement published at 7.00 a.m. on Wednesday 23 June 2021 in order to facilitate a live Q&A session.
This line will be open at 10.50 a.m. on Wednesday 23rd June 2021. There will be a presentation and plenty of time for questions.
