Results of AGM

 

Booker confirms that all resolutions proposed at the Annual General Meeting held on Wednesday 7 July 2010 at 11.00 a.m. at Booker Branch St Pancras, 106 Camley Street, Elm Village, Camden, London NW1 0PF and set out in the Notice of Meeting dated 4 June 2010 were duly passed by shareholders.

 

Resolution 9 (relating to the authority of directors to allot new shares in the Company) was subject to an amendment to change the expiry date for the authority to the conclusion of the next annual general meeting of the Company or, if earlier, 29 August 2011. This was due to a typographical error contained in the notice of meeting, which stated that the authority would expire on the conclusion of the next annual general meeting of the Company or, if earlier, 29 August 2010. Approval was sought and obtained to amend resolution 9 as described above. Subsequently, approval of the amended resolution was sought and obtained.
