2021 Annual General Meeting Arrangements
Further to the Company’s announcement on 4 May 2021, in light of Government and public health guidance regarding the COVID-19 pandemic and to comply with social distancing guidelines, the Board has decided that the 2021 Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) will be held as a closed meeting and we regret that shareholders will now not be able to attend.
The Company’s AGM will be held on Friday 28 May 2021 at 75-77 Colmore Row, Birmingham B3 2AP at 11.00a.m. The 2020 Annual Report and Notice of AGM containing full details are available on the Company’s website at www.reiplc.barques.dev/investors/reports/.
Given the current restrictions on attendance, shareholders are encouraged to appoint the chair of the meeting as their proxy rather than a named person who will not be permitted to attend the meeting. Details on how to submit your proxy vote by post, online or through CREST are set out in the Notice of AGM which may be found within the ‘Shareholder Circulars’ section of the following page: www.reiplc.barques.dev/investors/reports/.
Despite restrictions on attendance, we encourage shareholder participation at the AGM and therefore suggest that shareholders take advantage of the opportunity to submit questions in advance of the meeting. Any shareholder wishing to submit a question to the Board in advance may do so via email by 9.30a.m. on Wednesday 26 May 2021 using the details contained within the Notice of AGM.
The Company will ensure that all legal requirements of the AGM, in accordance with its Articles of Association, are satisfied through the attendance in person of the minimum number of two shareholders, with social distancing measures in place. The format of the AGM will be purely functional and the Company’s advisors will not be present. The results of the AGM will be announced following conclusion of the meeting.
