Annual General Meeting


The Company's 2021 Annual General Meeting (the AGM) will be held at Herbert Smith Freehills LLP, Exchange House, Primrose Street, London EC2A 2EG on Tuesday 21 December 2021 at 11.00am.


As announced on 8 November 2021, the Company plans to announce its results for the year ended 3 July 2021 on 16 December 2021, with the Annual Report and Accounts expected to be published before the end of December 2021. Given the delay to the publication of the Company's Annual Report and Accounts, certain resolutions relating to the Annual Report and Accounts, the appointment and remuneration of the Company's auditors, the directors' remuneration report and the directors' remuneration policy will not form part of the business at the AGM this year. The Company intends to convene a separate shareholder meeting to take place in February 2022 where resolutions on these matters will be tabled. Further details of this meeting will be provided in due course.

This AGM is being held to cover routine business only, namely the election and re-election of directors and renewal of authorities given to (i) the directors to allot shares and disapply pre-emption rights and (ii) the Company to make political donations and incur political expenditure, make market purchases of its own shares and to call general meetings by notice of 14 clear days.

At the time of this announcement, it is possible to conduct the AGM as an in-person meeting. However, in light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and given the importance of the health and safety of all our colleagues and shareholders, we ask that shareholders consider if their attendance at the AGM is necessary. Shareholders not attending the meeting in person can appoint the Chair of the AGM to vote on their behalf in accordance with their instructions and further details on the voting methods available to shareholders are set out in the Notice of AGM. Shareholders who cannot attend in person also have the opportunity to raise questions by email to in advance of the AGM. We will endeavour to provide answers to questions received on or before Thursday 16 December 2021 and publish these answers on our website. Please note that non-shareholders (other than carers attending with shareholders) will not be permitted to attend.


It is possible that we may be required to adapt these arrangements at short notice to reflect any new COVID-19 restrictions or guidelines. Should this be the case we will notify shareholders through our website at and, where appropriate, by a regulatory announcement.
