This announcement provides an update to the Company's Annual
General Meeting ('AGM') arrangements, as detailed in the Notice of
AGM published on 7 May 2021 (a copy of which can be obtained on the
Company's website at
Since the publication of the Notice, and from the 17(th) May,
the UK Government has permitted gatherings organised on businesses
premises, subject to complying with on-going COVID-secure
requirements, including social distancing. As a consequence, it is
legally permissible for shareholders to attend the AGM in person,
and the Company's AGM will no longer be held on a closed basis.
The safety and security of our shareholders, directors,
colleagues and guests is of paramount importance. COVID-19
restrictions remain in place and the Government has urged people to
maintain social distancing and reduce time spent in crowded areas.
The Company believes a cautious approach to situations,
particularly indoor events, that appear to carry a higher COVID-19
transmission risk is deemed appropriate.
Therefore, shareholders and corporate representatives are
strongly encouraged not to attend the AGM in person, and to
continue to vote by proxy or to participate in the business of the
AGM electronically through the online meeting platform, as
