As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and in compliance with the UK’s mandatory measures to reduce the transmission of COVID-19 (the “Emergency Laws”) the board of directors of the Company (the “Board”) has altered the usual format of to the Meeting. The Emergency Laws prohibit individuals engaging in non-essential travel and public gatherings of more than two people, save where the gathering is essential for work purposes. Whilst the Company remains legally obliged to hold the Meeting, the Emergency Measures, if still in place at the time of the Meeting, will significantly restrict the Company’s ability to follow the Company’s usual annual general meeting format. To ensure Shareholders can comply with the Emergency Measures, if still in place, the Board recommends that Shareholders should not attend the Meeting in person. It is intended that the Meeting will be held with only the minimum number of Shareholders present as required to form a quorum under the Company’s Articles of Association and who are essential for the business of the Meeting to be conducted. These attendees will be officers or employees of the Company. The results of the votes of the proposed resolutions will be announced in the normal way as soon as practicable after the conclusion of the Meeting.
Having regard to their own safety and that of others, Shareholders are respectfully asked to comply with the Emergency Measures and not to make plans to attend the Meeting. To ensure the safety or the limited number of people whose attendance is essential, the Board will not allow other Shareholders to have physical access to the Meeting on the day.
