Notice of Extraordinary General Meeting

 

An extraordinary general meeting of the Company will be held at Kings Buildings, 16 Smith Square, London SW1P 3JJ on 18 February 2021 at 10.00 am (the "EGM").

The business of the EGM will be to consider and, if thought fit, approve certain resolutions relating to the replacement of CREST with a system operated by Euroclear Bank SA/NV for the electronic settlement of trading in the Company's ordinary shares (the "Migration").

As a result of the withdrawal of the United Kingdom from the European Union, the CREST settlement system will soon no longer be able to provide settlement services to Irish incorporated listed companies.  Approval of the resolutions is therefore necessary to ensure that the Company's shares can continue to be held and settled electronically when they are traded on the London Stock Exchange and remain eligible for continued admission to trading and listing on that exchange, which is crucial to the interests of the Company and its shareholders as a whole. There is no meaningful alternative to Migration and failure to migrate would remove the Company's access to electronic trade settlement.

The circular which includes notice of the EGM (the "Circular") and a Form of Proxy is being posted to shareholders today. The Board strongly urges shareholders to review the contents of the Circular in their entirety, including the documents referred to therein, and consider the Board's recommendation to vote in favour of the Resolutions.

The Circular, the Form of Proxy and copies of the documents referred to in the Circular are available to view on the Company's website, www.aminex-plc.com and will be available for inspection as described in the Circular. However, due to Covid-19 public health guidelines, shareholders are advised to view the documents on the website.

EGM arrangements and Covid-19

The Company will follow public health guidelines in respect of social distancing, mass gatherings and other measures taken regarding Covid-19. The Company will be implementing the relevant measures advised by UK Government agencies at the EGM in relation to Covid-19. The wellbeing of our shareholders, staff and others are our priority. It is the Company's intention to hold the EGM with the minimum quorum necessary and we strongly advise our shareholders to submit their forms of proxy by post or electronically to ensure their vote counts at the EGM given that personal attendance at the EGM is not recommended under current Government guidelines. The Company reserves the right to refuse entry to the meeting where reasonably necessary to comply with the Covid-19 related public health measures and advice. We would therefore recommend that you consider appointing the chairperson of the EGM as your proxy due to the restrictions on other persons attending the EGM.

The Company will continue to closely monitor the developing situation around Covid-19, including the latest UK Government guidance, and how this may affect the arrangements for the EGM. Consequently, the EGM is subject to change, possibly at short notice. If it becomes necessary or appropriate to revise the current arrangements for the EGM, further information will be made available as quickly as possible by RNS and on our website at www.aminex-plc.com.
