Capital Reduction - Result of General Meeting
RA International Group PLC (AIM: RAI), a specialist provider of complex and integrated remote site services to organisations globally, announced on 2 November 2023 that a shareholder circular ("Circular") containing a notice of general meeting (the "General Meeting") and Form of Proxy were posted to shareholders. The Circular set out the details of a proposal to reduce the Company's capital by the cancellation of the Company's share premium account in order to create distributable reserves (the "Capital Reduction").
The Capital Reduction was conditional, inter alia, upon the Company obtaining approval by shareholders at a General Meeting, and confirmation by the Court. The Company is pleased to announce that at its General Meeting held earlier, the Capital Reduction resolution put to Shareholders was duly passed.
The resolution was proposed as a special resolution. The proxy votes cast in respect of the resolution were as follows:
Total Votes Cast
1. To approve the Capital Reduction
A vote "Withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the percentage of shares voted "For" or "Against" any resolution.
The Company will now apply to the Court for confirmation of the Capital Reduction. The Capital Reduction will only become effective if the Court confirms that it is satisfied that the interests of any creditors (including contingent creditors) of the Company, whose debts remain outstanding on the date of the Court Order are registered and protected. This may require the Company to give undertakings to the Court to protect creditors.
