Annual General Meeting 2018

 

Results of the Annual General Meeting held on 17 May 2018

 

Highcroft announces that at its Annual General Meeting, which was held at 12.00 today, all the proposed resolutions were duly approved by the shareholders by way of a poll.   Resolutions 1 to 9 were proposed as ordinary resolutions and resolution 10 was proposed as a special resolution.  The voting results are set out below and are also available on the Company's website at www.highcroftplc.com. 

 

Under the Financial Conduct Authority's Listing Rules, because the Kingerlee Concert Party is classed as a "controlling shareholder" (defined as a person who exercises or controls, on  their own or together with any other person with whom they are acting in concert, 30% or more of the voting rights in the Company) a resolution for the election and re-election of independent directors must be approved by an ordinary resolution of, the shareholders and separately approved by, those shareholders who are not controlling shareholders (the "Independent Shareholders").

 

Accordingly the results below show the voting by all shareholders and, separately, on resolutions 4 and 8 only, the voting by the Independent Shareholders (which excludes the voting interest of the Kingerlee Concert Party, as controlling shareholder, holding 2,164,466 ordinary shares which represents 41.9% of the issued ordinary share capital of the Company).
