Results of Annual General Meeting
At the Company's Annual General Meeting held at 4pm on Tuesday 30 June, shareholders passed Ordinary resolutions 1 - 5 and 7.
The Board notes that that Ordinary resolution 6 did not pass. This resolution sought shareholder approval to renew the Company's authority to continue its referral arrangements, even if they constituted political donation or political expenditure, up to an aggregate limit of £40,000. This resolution was proposed as a precautionary measure, in case any of the Company's normal operating activities were caught by the broad definition of political expenditure contained in the Companies Act 2006. The Company and its subsidiaries made no political donations and incurred no political expenditure following the conclusion of the 2019 Annual General Meeting to date.
The Board notes that special resolutions 8, 9, 10 and 11 also did not pass. Resolutions 9 and 11 were relatively standard authorities that UK listed companies take at annual general meetings, relating to the allotment of 5% of shares for cash on a non-pre-emptive basis and purchase of own shares. Resolution 10 was included to potentially avoid further costs which would be borne by the Company in convening a general meeting of shareholders should the necessity for a non pre-emptive issue of new Ordinary Shares in excess of the authorities granted by Resolutions 8 and 9 arise between the date of the AGM and 30 September 2020. The board is disappointed not to receive this limited additional flexibility of the special resolutions to pursue opportunities in the interests of the Company and its shareholders.
The results of the AGM will be published on the Company's website as soon as practicable following the meeting.
