All resolutions at the AGM will be decided on a poll (which will incorporate proxy votes received prior to the meetings). Shareholders are therefore encouraged to submit their proxy votes as soon as possible but in any event no later than the deadlines specified in the Notice of AGM.
Proxy voting can be completed in advance of the AGM by availing of one of the following options, depending on the manner in which you hold your shares:
For further instructions on proxy voting, please consult the Form of Proxy and the Notice of the Annual General Meeting.
The appointment of a proxy may be made in the manner set out in the Notice of AGM. Given the Restrictions, shareholders should appoint the Chairman of the meeting as their proxy rather than another person who will not be permitted to attend the meeting in person.
Prior to the AGM, shareholders may submit questions by email to the Secretary at firstname.lastname@example.org AS SOON AS POSSIBLE but in any event no later than 6.00 p.m. on 29 September 2021.
