Blue Planet Investment Trust plc - 2020 Annual General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting of the company will be held on 22nd September 2020 at 17 Grosvenor Crescent, Edinburgh, EH12 5EL at 11:00am.
IN ACCORDANCE WITH UK GOVERNMENT PUBLIC HEALTH GUIDELINES RELATING TO COVID-19, SHAREHOLDERS SHOULD NOT ATTEND THE AGM IN PERSON THIS YEAR.
As at the date of this document, the UK Government has prohibited large public gatherings, save in certain limited circumstances. In light of these measures and in order to protect the health and safety of Blue Planet Investment Trust plc’s (the “Company”) shareholders and directors, we hope that shareholders will understand that the Company’s Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) will be run as a closed meeting. Shareholders will not be able to attend in person. Instead, the Company will make arrangements to ensure that the legal requirements to hold the meeting can be satisfied through the attendance of two shareholders constituting the minimum quorum for the AGM. The format of the AGM will be purely functional and will comprise only the formal votes of the AGM resolutions. Shareholders are therefore strongly encouraged to submit a proxy vote in advance of the meeting.
Given the restrictions on attendance set out above, shareholders are strongly encouraged to appoint the Chairman as their proxy, rather than a named person who will not be permitted to attend the meeting. All resolutions will be decided by way of a poll so that the votes of shareholders who do not attend in person will be counted.
