Notice of AGM and Annual Report
Futura Medical plc (AIM: FUM) (“Futura” or the “Company”), a pharmaceutical company developing a portfolio of innovative products based on its proprietary, transdermal DermaSys® drug delivery technology and currently focused on sexual health and pain, announces its Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) will be held at 10am on Wednesday, 24 June 2020, at the Company’s Head Office, Surrey Technology Centre, 40 Occam Road, Guildford, GU2 7YG. The Company also publishes its Annual Report for the year ended 31 December 2019.
The Board has been closely monitoring the evolving Coronavirus (COVID-19) situation and recognises that UK Government guidance continues to require social distancing and prohibition of mass gatherings.
Only the minimum number of directors who are shareholders will attend in person to ensure a quorum is present. Accordingly, so as to ensure their vote is counted at the AGM, all shareholders are asked to submit a Form of Proxy, instructing the Chairman of the Meeting on how they wish to vote on the proposed resolutions.
The Board recognises the ongoing importance of communication with shareholders at this time. The Company will be providing a video conference call link to enable shareholders to follow proceedings of the meeting and potentially ask questions about the resolutions. Any shareholders who wish to follow the meeting by video conference should contact the Company Secretary prior to the day of the meeting at [email protected] in order to request video conference dial-in details and to provide the requisite identification documents.
Reminder to vote by proxy
We urge all shareholders to register their vote in advance. You will not receive a hard copy form of proxy for the 2020 AGM in the post. Instead, you will be able to vote electronically using the link www.signalshares.com by logging into your Signal Shares account, or register if you have not previously done so. To register you will need your Investor Code, this is detailed on your share certificate or available from our Registrar, Link Asset Services. You may request a hard copy form of proxy directly from the registrars, Link Asset Services, on Tel: 0371 664 0391. Proxy votes must be received no later than 10:00 am on Monday, 22nd June 2020.
The Board will continue to monitor the situation and may, if necessary, need to make further changes to the arrangements for the AGM, including how it is conducted. Shareholders should therefore continue to monitor the Company’s website and announcements.
The Board would like to thank shareholders for their understanding and support during these exceptional circumstances and wish them well during these challenging times.
