Gresham House plc (LON:GHE), the specialist alternative asset manager, announced today the following changes to the arrangements regarding its Annual General Meeting to be held on Friday, 15 May 2020 at 1.30pm, which will cover formal resolutions only.
In accordance with the measures issued by Her Majesty’s Government restricting social gatherings because of COVID-19, the Gresham House AGM will no longer be held at the venue stated in the Notice of AGM. The AGM will now be held at Cunningham Hill Road, St. Albans, Hertfordshire, AL1 5BX as the legal requirement to hold an AGM remains in force.
As the attendance of more than two people at an AGM may not be permitted under the measures issued by HM Government, the Chairman of the AGM will exercise his statutory powers to exclude other attendees. Once two people (including the Chairman of the AGM) are present, all other persons will be excluded. The Company has made arrangements for two persons to be present at the AGM in circumstances which are permitted by HM Government’s measures. Thus, anyone else who attempts to join the AGM cannot be admitted.
Shareholders are reminded that they must not attempt to attend the AGM as it may be unlawful to do so under the current measures in place in order to safeguard their health.
All valid proxy votes submitted so far will be included in the poll to be taken at the meeting.
Gresham House recognises that the AGM is an important forum for shareholders to raise questions to the Board and therefore, following the AGM, a webinar will be held at 11am on Tuesday, 19 May 2020. This will include a short presentation from Tony Dalwood, Chief Executive Officer, Kevin Acton, Chief Financial Officer and Andrew Hampshire, Chief Operating Officer, with a Q&A session. Attendees will also have the opportunity to submit questions in advance of the session.
Questions may be submitted by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org
