Mobeus Income & Growth VCT plc - Revised Annual General Meeting Arrangements
The announcement made at 1.00pm today to the London Stock Exchange provided an update to the Mobeus Income & Growth VCT plc’s (the "Company") Annual General Meeting arrangements as detailed in the Notice of the Annual General Meeting (“AGM”), published on 6 April 2020.
The Board of the Company notifies Shareholders that it has assumed the continuation of the containment and distancing measures of the UK Government’s COVID-19 Stay at Home Measures restricting public gatherings of more than two people and prohibiting non- essential travel beyond the current date of 7 May 2020. In order to comply with these measures, attendance at the Company's AGM to be held at 2.00pm on 12 May 2020 will not be permitted in person. We hope that Shareholders understand we are taking these steps for the safety of, and to protect, our Shareholders, Board and all other attendees.
It is accordingly necessary to adjust the way in which this year’s AGM is conducted and the AGM will now be held by conference call, which will enable Shareholders to raise any questions they may have following the presentation. The formal business set out in the notice of AGM will be considered at the AGM which will be preceded by a presentation from the Investment Adviser, Mobeus Equity Partners LLP, which will be accessible via a portal by using the following link: https://slideassist.webcasts.com/starthere.jsp?ei=1312990
Shareholders wishing to join the conference call are advised to register a few minutes before 2.00pm as the meeting will start promptly and should use the below dial-in details:
Telephone: 0330 336 9104
Shareholders should be aware that it will not be possible to vote on the conference call. The Board is nevertheless keen to ensure that Shareholders are able to exercise their right to vote and strongly recommends that Shareholders register their votes on all the Resolutions to be put to the AGM no later than 2.00pm on Thursday, 7 May 2020 in order to be counted, either by returning the proxy form circulated with the Annual Report or electronically by using the online portal at: www.investorcentre.co.uk/eproxy. Shareholders are also advised to appoint the chairman of the meeting as their proxy.
If Shareholders are unable to join the conference call, questions can be submitted to the Board in advance of the AGM by email to: firstname.lastname@example.org. We will consider all questions received and, if appropriate, provide a written response.
