Shareholder Meetings

Date this page was last updated: 19 March 2020


We find ourselves in unprecedented times this year, with the UK, and indeed the world, in the grip of a pandemic, meaning many shareholders are likely to be advised against attending the annual general meeting (AGM) in person by the Government. The Board is closely monitoring the developing COVID-19 situation and we want to assure you that the wellbeing of the Company’s shareholders, customers and employees remains of paramount importance.

As stated in the notice of annual general meeting (notice of AGM), the AGM is scheduled to take place at the Edinburgh International Conference Centre, The Exchange, Edinburgh, EH3 8EE on Thursday 21 May 2020 at 11.00am (the ‘AGM’). While it is a legal requirement for us to hold the AGM in order to pass essential shareholder resolutions, circumstances may require the normal proceedings to be shortened or amended and, for public health reasons, we will not plan to offer refreshments this year after the meeting.

For shareholders who are not able to attend, we will seek to provide alternative arrangements for them to be involved. We will communicate with shareholders before the meeting through this page.

UPDATES AND USEFUL INFORMATION

Has the date, time or venue for the AGM changed?

There are no changes to report as at the date shown above; the AGM is scheduled to take place as set out above and in the notice of AGM.

What will cause the AGM arrangements to change?

As at the date shown above, the Government has announced that they are advising individuals not to undertake any non-essential travel and to avoid large gatherings in venues such as restaurants, clubs and theatres. They are also withdrawing emergency service support for large gatherings. While it is not clear how long these measures will be in place, it seems likely that they will affect attendance at the AGM. We would encourage you to refer to the Governments’ official websites, www.gov.uk/guidance/coronavirus-covid-19-information-for-the-public and www.gov.scot/coronavirus-covid-19/ for the latest guidance.

For shareholders who are not able to attend, we will seek to provide alternative arrangements for them to be involved.
