Notice of Annual General Meeting


Following the publication on 30 June 2021 of its Annual Financial Report for the year ended 31 March 2021, the Company announces that it will hold its Annual General Meeting ("AGM") on Wednesday, 22 September 2021 at 2.00 p.m.


Despite recent announcements by the UK government and the removal of the majority of COVID-19 restrictions, the Board considers that there remains a degree of uncertainty around the relaxation of restrictions and what this means for the holding of the AGM.


While the Company understands and respects the importance of the AGM to Shareholders and the Board greatly values the opportunity to meet Shareholders in person, it remains the Board's priority to ensure the health and wellbeing of all stakeholders during these uncertain times and, given that restrictions may be tightened at relatively short notice, recognises this may prevent Shareholders from attending the AGM. Accordingly, the Board strongly encourages Shareholders not to attend the AGM in person, and strongly encourages all Shareholders to vote on the resolutions to be proposed at the AGM by proxy.  Given that the uncertainty relating to what COVID-19 restrictions may be in place at the time of the AGM, Shareholders are encouraged to appoint the Chair of the Meeting as their proxy.


Should you still wish to attend in person, we kindly ask that you register your interest in attending by emailing the Company Secretary at  Please note that the venue of the meeting may place restrictions on the number of attendees and/or prescribe other entry requirements.


The Board expects that the AGM will be functional in format, attended only by those necessary to form a quorum, which will be facilitated by the Company. However, the Board understands that beyond voting on the formal business of the meeting, the AGM also serves as a forum for Shareholders to raise questions and comments to the Board. Therefore, registered Shareholders and their corporate representatives or proxies are invited to ask any questions of the Board by submitting questions by email. We will aim to respond to all questions submitted in this way. Shareholders may submit questions by email to Please ensure that all questions are submitted no later than 10.00 a.m. on Friday, 17 September 2021.


A copy of the Notice of the AGM is available to view on the Company's website at It has also been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at Where applicable, copies of the Notice of the AGM are being posted to the Company's shareholders on Monday, 9 August 2021.
