Extraordinary General Meeting results


The Board of MedicX Fund Limited (LSE: MXF), is pleased to announce that at the Extraordinary General Meeting of its Shareholders held at 4.30 p.m. today, the special resolution proposing that the Company becomes resident in the United Kingdom for tax purposes and enters the UK REIT regime, was duly passed.  The details of the resolution were as follows: 


It was resolved that the Proposals (as defined in the Company's circular to shareholders dated 18 August 2017) be approved and that with effect from 00.01a.m. on 29 September 2017, the new articles of incorporation of the Company produced to the meeting containing amendments required for the purposes of the Company's entry into the UK REIT regime be adopted.

In Favour - 178,223,806 (99.92%)

Against - 138,078 (0.08%)

Withheld - Nil


David Staples, Chairman of MedicX Fund, commented:


"We are delighted that the Fund's shareholders have strongly supported the Company's proposal to convert to a UK REIT. Entry into the UK REIT regime will benefit our shareholders by exempting future profits from the Company's Qualifying Property Rental Business from UK corporation tax. REIT status is the next step in the Company's growth journey which will also potentially widen the appeal to new investors."




·      The votes "in favour" of the resolution are calculated as the aggregate of proxy instructions voting "in favour" of the resolution and the votes at the Chairman's discretion.

·      A vote "withheld" is not a vote in law and is not calculated in the proportion of the votes "in favour" or "against" the resolution.

·      The total number of voting rights as at the proxy deadline was 428,530,249.
