Results of Annual General Meeting ("AGM")

 

Results of the AGM

 

The AGM of Gulf Marine Services PLC was held on Wednesday, 30 June 2021. In the context of the continued restrictions on public gatherings as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, it was therefore not possible for the AGM to be held in the same format as in previous years, as a result of which shareholders were strongly encouraged to submit a form of proxy in advance of this meeting rather than seeking to vote in person.

 

Accordingly, all the resolutions were put to shareholders on a poll. The results of the poll are shown in the table below and will shortly be available on the Company's website,   www.gmsplc.com.
