Update on 2020 Annual General Meeting ("AGM")


On 24 March 2020, the Company posted notice of its 2020 AGM to be held at 9.00am on Wednesday 6 May 2020.

As a result of the restrictions related to COVID-19 within the United Kingdom including the prohibition of public gatherings of more than two people, we are announcing meeting format changes to the AGM.

The venue for the AGM is closed to public gatherings and shareholders should not attend the AGM in person. We will convene the AGM with the minimum quorum of two shareholders necessary to conduct the business of the meeting. The attendance of these two shareholders will be organised by Ascential and government distancing guidelines will be observed.

Shareholders are encouraged to vote on all matters of business by appointing the Chairman of the Meeting as their proxy. Shareholders can register their proxy electronically by logging on to You will need your Voting ID, Task ID and Shareholder Reference Number, which is printed on the Form of Proxy that was sent to you along with the 2020 Notice of Meeting.  Shareholders can also complete and return the Proxy Form (in accordance with the instructions set out in the Proxy Form) or via the CREST electronic proxy appointment service. Shareholders holding their shares through CREST should appoint a proxy electronically, in accordance with the instructions on page 10 of the 2020 Notice of Meeting.

Your Proxy Form (or instruction through CREST) should be returned as soon as possible and, in any event, prior to 09.00 (BST) on Monday 4 May 2020.

All valid proxy votes will be included in the poll taken at the meeting.  The results of the poll votes on the proposed resolutions will be announced, in the normal way, as soon as practicable after the conclusion of the AGM.

The Board recognises that the AGM provides an opportunity for shareholders to ask questions that they have relating to the Company. The Company will fully respond in writing to questions submitted by registered shareholders in advance of the meeting.  Registered shareholders can submit questions by email to [email protected] .
