Annual General Meeting – 13 May 2021

With the likely outlook for the coming weeks based on the Government’s Covid-19 roadmap, we intend to hold the Annual General Meeting (‘AGM’) on Thursday 13 May 2021 at 9.30am as a closed meeting and on this basis, unfortunately shareholders and others will not be able to attend in person. We will arrange for the necessary quorum to be in attendance so that the meeting is able to conduct its business.

Shareholders are strongly advised to appoint the Chair of the meeting as their proxy so that their vote is counted at the AGM. To appoint a proxy for the AGM, please fill in the Form of Proxy and return it to our registrars. Alternatively, you can register your proxy vote electronically by logging on to or, if you are a member of CREST, via Computershare Investor Services PLC (ID 3RA50). The registrars must receive your proxy appointment by 9.30 a.m. on Tuesday 11 May 2021. 

We have published the presentation of our 2020 results below. This gives shareholders the opportunity to hear directly from our Chief Executive, Richard Smith and our Chief Financial Officer, Joe Lister as well as hearing the answers to various questions raised during this presentation.
