Notice of Annual General Meeting (“AGM”)
UK Oil & Gas PLC (London AIM: UKOG) is pleased to confirm that it has posted the notice of the 2020 AGM and forms of proxy to registered shareholders. The AGM will be held on 17 June 2020 at Hays House, Millmead, Guildford, Surrey GU2 4HJ, United Kingdom.
Please note that due to the current Covid-19 situation, arrangements for this year’s Annual General Meeting are different from those of previous years.
In keeping with the government’s current Covid-19 health and safety advice, the meeting will be held with a Board quorate only. Consequently, we kindly request that shareholders do not attend the meeting in person. Please do not travel to the meeting, as you will be refused entry.
To ensure that shareholders can still participate in an orderly and safe AGM during the Covid-19 pandemic, this year’s meeting will be held via an electronic platform. The platform will permit shareholders to hear the meeting’s chairman and to submit questions on the resolutions and business of the meeting. AGM specific questions can be submitted via the platform during a 48 hour period from 11:00 am 13 June 2020 and real-time during the AGM. Questions submitted via any other method than the the platform will not be answered.
Whilst this year’s AGM structure utilises certain special pandemic-related discretionary powers, it remains wholly in accordance with UKOG’s articles of association and the Companies Act. It also fully complies with the Company’s Covid-19 policy and governmental Covid-19 safety advice.
Shareholders are therefore strongly encouraged to exercise their AGM voting rights by submitting the proxy form attached with the AGM notice. The deadline for submission of proxies to the Registrar is 11:00 am 15 June 2020. You are strongly advised to appoint the chairman of the meeting as your proxy to ensure your vote is counted.
The Company will continue to monitor Government advice in relation to the Coronavirus pandemic, and in turn urges you to monitor the Company’s website for updates on changes to arrangements for the AGM which we may need to make.
The AGM Notice will be made available on the Company’s website www.ukogplc.com.
The result of the AGM will be announced shortly after its conclusion and published on the Company’s website.
