Due to the guidance issued by the UK government on 23 March 2020 restricting social gatherings in the light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic we are asking shareholders not to attend the AGM in person. Whilst it is the Company's intention to proceed with holding the 2020 AGM on Friday 24 April 2020 at 12.00 noon, the venue will now be at Rotork House, Brassmill Lane, Bath, BA1 3HZ and the Board requests that shareholders do not attend the AGM but instead appoint a proxy and provide voting instructions in advance of the AGM.

The Notice of AGM and Proxy Forms will be posted to Shareholders on 1 April 2020 and will also be available on our website from that date. Shareholders will be able to join the AGM as attendees by phone and/or web address, details of which will be contained in the Notice.
