Intention to Adjourn Requisitioned General Meeting


Further to the announcement on 9 May 2017, Hornby today announces that it intends, subject to shareholder approval, to indefinitely adjourn the general meeting requisitioned on 7 April 2017 (the "RGM") by ROY Nominees Limited and HSBC Global Custody Nominee (UK) Limited (Account 883031), together representing the beneficial owners of c.20 per cent. of the paid-up capital of the Company carrying voting rights at general meetings of the Company (the "Requisitionists"). The Requisitionists have confirmed in writing that they support such an adjournment of the RGM.


Given the proposed adjournment, the RGM will open and proceed to seek shareholder approval to be indefinitely adjourned without proceeding to any of the formal business of the RGM.  The RGM is scheduled to take place on 16 May 2017 at 11.00 a.m. at the offices of the Company's solicitors, Berwin Leighton Paisner LLP at Adelaide House, London Bridge, London EC4R 9HA.    


We refer shareholders to note 3 of the form of proxy issued in connection with the RGM.  In the event that a shareholder appoints a proxy (which may include the chairman of the RGM), then subject to any specific voting directions communicated to such proxy, it will exercise his/her discretion as to how to vote, or whether to abstain from voting on a particular resolution that is put to the RGM, to adjourn the RGM and on any other business that may properly come before the RGM.  This will apply in the case of the proposed resolution to secure shareholder approval to adjourn the RGM indefinitely.


In order to facilitate the proposed adjournment, shareholders should therefore still complete the form of proxy and return it, in accordance with the instructions printed thereon, as soon as possible, but in any event so as to be received by post or, during normal business hours only, by hand, by the Registrars, Capita Asset Services, at PXS 1, 34 Beckenham Road, Beckenham, Kent BR3 4TU, by no later than 11.00 a.m. on 12 May 2017.
