Johnson Service Grp.

Update in relation to the AGM

RNS Number : 9752I
Johnson Service Group PLC
07 April 2020


7 April 2020


Johnson Service Group PLC (the 'Company')


Update in relation to the Company's Annual General Meeting ('AGM') on 5 May 2020


In view of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the uncertainty around the timeframe for relaxing the UK Government's current compulsory measures (the 'Stay at Home Measures') prohibiting, among other things, public gatherings of more than two people, the Board intends that the following arrangements will apply to the AGM.


The chairman of the meeting intends,   in accordance with the Company's Articles of Association, to adjourn the AGM to 13:00 hours on the same day, 5 May 2020, such adjourned meeting to take place at a new location being the offices of Johnson Service Group PLC, Abbots Park, Monks Way, Preston Brook, Cheshire, WA7 3GH.


At the AGM, as previously notified on 20 March 2020, Resolution 3 of the Notice of AGM relating to dividend payments, will be withdrawn.


All other details relating to the AGM remain unchanged from those in the Notice of AGM.


We will also reduce the length of the meeting by limiting it to the formal business required; there will be no corporate presentation, Q&A or refreshments. Please note that there will be only limited Company representation at the meeting and professional advisors have been asked not to attend.  Accordingly, and whilst in normal circumstances the Board values very highly the opportunity to meet shareholders in person at its AGM, in view of the Stay at Home Measures the Board asks shareholders not to attend the AGM in person this year and, instead, to exercise their right to submit proxy votes.  Anyone (other than the two shareholders who will form the quorum) seeking to attend the meeting in person will be refused entry.  If you wish to exercise your vote at the AGM, and you have not already done so, please return your proxy form as soon as possible.


The Company is taking these precautionary measures to safeguard its shareholders' and employees' health, to comply with current Government guidelines to minimise the unnecessary movement of people and to make the AGM as safe and efficient as possible.


The Board hopes that all shareholders will exercise their vote on the matters of business and submit a proxy vote as early as possible.  Full details of how to complete the proxy form and return it are contained in the Notice of AGM and the latest time for proxies to be lodged is 11:00 on 3 May 2020.
