Real Estate Investors Plc (AIM:RLE), the UK’s only Midlands-focused Real Estate Investment Trust (REIT) with a portfolio of 1.59 million sq ft of investment property across all sectors, announces that the Company’s annual report and accounts for the year ended 31 December 2020 (“2020 Annual Report”) has been posted to shareholders with notice of the Company’s 2021 Annual General Meeting (“Notice of AGM”), which will be held at 11.00 a.m. on 28 May 2021 at 75-77 Colmore Row, Birmingham B3 2AP. The 2020 Annual Report and Notice of AGM are available on the Company’s website at www.reiplc.barques.dev.
Subject to UK Government guidelines, it is intended that the AGM will be held as an open meeting and shareholders will be able to attend in person. However, the Company is closely monitoring developments relating to COVID-19, including the related public health guidance and legislation issued by the UK Government, and will continue to do so up to the date of the AGM. The Company will notify the market if there are any changes to the AGM (including those related to holding the meeting as a closed meeting or any change in location) by 26 May 2021.
The Company would appreciate notice from any shareholder who plans to attend the meeting, however, would encourage shareholders to consider whether attendance is appropriate, and instead take advantage of the opportunity to submit questions in advance of the meeting.
Shareholders are therefore encouraged to submit a proxy vote in advance of the meeting. Details on how to submit your proxy vote by post, online or through CREST are set out in the AGM Notice. Shareholders are encouraged to appoint the chair of the meeting as their proxy.
Further details are contained within the Notice of AGM.
