The full text of the resolutions can be found in the circular to shareholders dated 24 May 2021 which can be viewed on the Company's website at: www.cityinvestmenttrust.com .

 

For the purposes of section 341 of the Companies Act 2006, the votes validly cast are expressed in the table above as a percentage of the Company's total voting rights as at the close of business on 16 June 2021 (29,768,006), being the time at which a shareholder had to be registered in the register of members in order to vote at the General Meeting.  A vote "withheld" is not a vote in law and has not been counted as a vote "for" or "against" a resolution.

 

The number of ordinary shares in issue at the date of this announcement is 445,624,868. There are no shares held in treasury. As at the date of this announcement the number of voting rights in the Company is:

 

a)  29,708,324 in respect of the ordinary shares (one vote for every 15 shares held);

b)  30,198 in respect of the First Preference Stock (one vote for every £10 of stock held); and

c)  29,484 in respect of the Preferred Ordinary Stock (one vote for every £20 of stock held).

 

Therefore, the total number of voting rights in the Company is 29,768,006.

 

A copy of the poll results will be available on the Company's website at: www.cityinvestmenttrust.com

 

A copy of the resolutions will be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism ("NSM") and will shortly be available for inspection on the NSM's website at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism.
