2020 AGM format in light of Coronavirus (COVID-19)
The Board recognises the importance of the AGM to the Company's shareholders and would normally welcome the occasion as an opportunity to meet with shareholders, present on the Group’s strategy and performance, and listen and respond to questions, in person.
However, in light of the evolving COVID-19 outbreak, it was necessary to make some important changes to the way in which we held and conducted this year's meeting.
In light of the measures taken by the Government to reduce the public health risks the Board considered that it was in the Company's best interests to proceed with this year's AGM, but that the meeting would be purely functional in format, focusing on the formal business only. The Board proposed that a limited number of Company representatives will attend the AGM in person to ensure that a valid meeting is held. In doing so, they observed all relevant social distancing guidelines.
To ensure the safety of all our stakeholders, shareholders were not permitted to attend the AGM in person. We regret that this was a necessary step but the health and wellbeing of the Company’s shareholders, as well as its employees and customers, is of paramount importance.
