Publication of Notice of 2021 Annual General Meeting


AGM Notice


A copy of the notice of the annual general meeting of the Company (the "2021 AGM Notice"), to be held on Thursday, 6 May 2021 at 2.00 p.m. at White & Case LLP, 5 Old Broad Street, London, EC2N 1DW (the "Annual General Meeting"), has been published today on the Company's website at


Our preference had been to welcome shareholders in person to our Annual General Meeting this year, particularly given the constraints we faced in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, in light of the ongoing pandemic and the current timetable for relaxing the restrictions imposed by the UK Government, regretfully it is still not possible for us to hold our Annual General Meeting in the normal way.

To comply with the current UK Government pandemic guidelines, shareholders and proxies (other than those attending to form the quorum which will be facilitated by the Company and such other persons as the Chair may decide) will not be permitted to attend the meeting in person. However, shareholder engagement is very important to us and we encourage you to follow the proceedings of the meeting virtually by joining the audio webcast of the meeting. Further details of the meeting and how shareholders can engage with the business of the meeting is included in the 2021 AGM Notice.

Given the constantly evolving nature of the situation, if the guidelines should change materially before the date of the meeting, we may adapt our proposed arrangements, working in accordance with the latest legislation and guidance issued by the UK Government and mindful of public health concerns. If the Board considers that arrangements regarding attendance at the Annual General Meeting can change, we will notify any changes as early as possible before the date of the meeting. Shareholders should continue to monitor the Company's website at and regulatory news services for any updates to the meeting arrangements.
