2021 AGM Update Statement
At the Company's Annual General Meeting ("AGM") held on 29 April 2021, Resolution 6 (authority to allot shares) was passed with the necessary majority. However, 30.17% of votes received were against. This resolution is considered routine practice for UK listed companies and is within the Investment Association's Share Capital Management Guidelines. The Board is aware, however, that certain overseas institutional investors have a policy of not supporting this authority for Directors to issue shares. Since the AGM, the Company has further engaged with shareholders on this resolution and still considers the flexibility afforded by this authority to be in the best interests of the Company and shareholders.
The Company will continue to engage with shareholders and will provide a final update in the 2021 Annual Report.
