The Open Orphan 2020 Annual Report, and the Notice of AGM, which includes details of voting by proxy, have been posted to shareholders who have not consented to receive electronic communications.
The AGM is scheduled to be held at 12 noon BST on 21 July 2021 at the offices of Arden Partners plc, 125 Old Broad St, London EC2N 1AR, and will consider the resolutions set out in the Notice of AGM.
In light of the UK Government’s response to the ongoing COVID-19 outbreak, the Company and the Executive Chairman have determined that the Resolutions to be proposed at the AGM shall be voted on through a poll rather than on a show of hands; and, accordingly, shareholders are strongly encouraged to either submit their Form of Proxy or use the CREST Proxy Voting Service, rather than attend the meeting in person.
