Impact of COVID-19 for the AGM


The COVID-19 pandemic will affect the format of the Company's AGM this year and our priority is to ensure the health and wellbeing of all stakeholders. We recognise the current UK Government guidance designed to mitigate the spread of COVID-19, specifically relating to the avoidance of public gatherings and travel restrictions (the "COVID-19 Measures"). We intend to hold the AGM in full compliance with the COVID-19 Measures and as there are currently still restrictive measures with regards to social distancing in place, shareholders will not be permitted to attend the AGM in person this year. In the event that the COVID-19 Measures are relaxed to permit such gatherings at the time of the AGM, the Company will make an announcement to this effect by RNS. The AGM will be functional in format and attended only by those necessary to form the quorum, which will be facilitated by the Company.
