Posting of documents to shareholders and notice of Annual General Meeting
Science Group plc (AIM: SAG) announces that it has today posted to shareholders its Annual Report and Financial Statements for the year ended 31 December 2019, together with the Notice of Annual General Meeting (“AGM”). Both documents are available on the Company’s website at www.sciencegroup.com.
As previously announced, the AGM is to be held at 9.00 a.m. on 16 June 2020 at the Company’s London office. The Company notes that the Annual Report, which was approved by the Board prior to the postponement of the AGM, refers to the original AGM date of 19 May 2020.
In the current exceptional circumstances, the AGM will only address formal matters, have only sufficient attendees to be quorate and will not provide any opportunity for questions. In accordance with UK Government guidelines on gatherings, the Board requests that shareholders do not attend and that all shareholders appoint the Chairman of the meeting as their proxy.
David Courtley was re-appointed to the Board at the 2019 AGM for a tenth year to provide continuity and stability to the Board. Mr Courtley will be retiring from the Board with effect from 31 May 2020. Mr Courtley joined the Board as a Non-Executive Director in April 2010 and the Board would like to thank him for his significant contribution over the past ten years.
The Board is pleased to announce that it is intended to appoint Mr Peter Bertram to the Board of Science Group plc as a Non-Executive Director after the AGM this year. A further announcement will be made at the time.
Mr Bertram is currently Chairman of Manolete Partners plc. He has previously held a variety of Non-Executive board positions including Alphameric plc, Anite plc, Microgen plc, Phoenix IT group plc and Psion plc, and was CEO of Azlan Group plc. Mr Bertram is a Chartered Accountant and has a degree in Accounting from the University of Kent.
