28 September 2016
Bond International Software PLC ("Bond" or "the Company")
General Meeting adjourned to 10:00 a.m. on 5 October 2016
A general meeting was to be held at Courtlands, Parklands Avenue, Goring-By-Sea, Worthing, West Sussex BN12 4NQ at 10.00 am on 28 September 2016 (the "General Meeting") to seek approval from shareholders for the sale by Bond of its recruitment software division to funds managed by Symphony Technology Group, LLC ("STG") (the "Sale").
On 26 September 2016, Bond announced that it intended to adjourn the General Meeting to a time and date to be fixed by the Bond directors in due course. Further to the General Meeting, which was opened this morning, the Chairman of the meeting has adjourned the General Meeting to 10.00 am on 5 October 2016 (the "Adjourned General Meeting").
Bond Shareholders who have already submitted forms of proxy for the General Meeting and who do not wish to change their voting instructions will not need to take any further action as their forms of proxy will continue to be valid in respect of the Adjourned General Meeting.
Bond Shareholders who have submitted forms of proxy for the General Meeting but who wish to change their voting instructions must submit a new form of proxy.
To be valid, forms of proxy in respect of the Adjourned General Meeting should be completed, signed and returned so as to be received by Bond's registrars, Share Registrars Limited, The Courtyard, 17 West Street, Farnham, Surrey GU9 7DR as soon as possible, but in any event so as to be received not later than 10.00 a.m. on 3 October 2016. Completion and return of a form of proxy will not prevent a Bond Shareholder from attending the Adjourned General Meeting and voting in person.
To change your proxy instructions simply submit a new proxy appointment using the methods set out above. Note that the cut-off time for receipt of proxy appointments (see above) also applies in relation to amended instructions; any amended proxy appointment received after the relevant cut-off time will be disregarded.
Where you have appointed a proxy using the hard-copy proxy form and would like to change the instructions using another hard-copy proxy form, please contact Share Registrars Limited on 01252 821 390.
If you submit more than one valid proxy appointment, the appointment received last before the latest time for the receipt of proxies will take precedence.
In order to revoke a proxy instruction you will need to inform Bond using one of the following methods:
· by sending a signed hard copy notice clearly stating your intention to revoke your proxy appointment to Share Registrars Limited at The Courtyard, 17 West Street, Farnham, Surrey GU9 7DR, or
· by scan and email to [email protected]
In the case of a member which is a company, the revocation notice must be executed under its common seal or signed on its behalf by an officer of the company or an attorney for the company. Any power of attorney or any other authority under which the revocation notice is signed (or a duly certified copy of such power or authority) must be included with the revocation notice.
In either case, the revocation notice must be received by Share Registrars Limited no later than 10.00 a.m. on 3 October 2016.
If you attempt to revoke your proxy appointment but the revocation is received after the time specified then, subject to the paragraph directly below, your proxy appointment will remain valid.
Appointment of a proxy does not preclude you from attending the Adjourned General Meeting and voting in person. If you have appointed a proxy and attend the Adjourned General Meeting in person, your proxy appointment will automatically be terminated.
Bond Shareholders who hold their shares in certificated form are referred to the detailed notes contained in the notice convening the Adjourned General Meeting and the accompanying form of proxy.
