Notice of AGM
Posting of Report and Accounts
Judges Scientific, a group focused on acquiring and developing companies in the scientific instrument sector, announces that it has posted the copies of the Group's Annual Report and Accounts and Notice of Annual General Meeting. The Company's Annual General Meeting ("AGM") will be held at St John's Wood, London on Wednesday 26 May 2021 at 12.00 noon.
Given the Government's current restrictions on public gatherings in place at the date of this announcement it will not be possible for shareholders to attend the AGM in person.
As shareholders cannot attend in person, the Board encourages all shareholders to vote by submitting a proxy in advance of the AGM. To ensure that their vote counts, shareholders should only appoint the Chair of the AGM to act as their proxy. Given the current circumstances, we strongly encourage shareholders to vote online via www.signalshares.com by logging on, selecting the "Proxy Voting" link and following the instructions given. If you have not previously registered for electronic communications, you will first be asked to register as a new user, for which you will require your investor code (which can be found on your share certificate). Shareholders who hold their shares in the CREST system should lodge their votes electronically in the ordinary course.
The Company will also, before the meeting, produce a recording in which David Cicurel, Judges' CEO, will answer questions submitted to the Company in writing by shareholders no later than close of business on 18 May 2021. Shareholders who wish to submit a question should email firstname.lastname@example.org with their name and shareholding. We cannot guarantee all questions will be able to be answered during this recording.
The recording will subsequently be uploaded onto the Company's website www.judges.uk.com on 20 May 2021, ahead of the voting deadline of 24 May 2021.
