Communications with shareholders

Through regular meetings and presentations between the executive Directors, analysts and institutional shareholders, including those following the announcements of the Company’s annual and interim results, the Company seeks to build on a mutual understanding of objectives with its shareholders.

The non-executive Directors are available to meet institutional shareholders should there be unresolved matters shareholders wish to bring to their attention. The views of key analysts and shareholders are generally reported to the Board directly by individual Directors or via the Company’s brokers. This helps to ensure that all members of the Board develop an understanding of the views and any concerns of shareholders.

The Board welcomes the attendance of shareholders at the Annual General Meeting, the notice for which can be found here. The Annual General Meeting provides all shareholders with the opportunity to attend and vote on the matters put to shareholders, either in person or by proxy. The results of the voting on each of the resolutions proposed will be announced shortly after the Annual General Meeting has concluded.
