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.

Where possible, we would encourage you to submit your vote electronically, however, if you do require a copy of the proxy form this can be downloaded here.

Once printed, please complete your proxy form in the usual way in accordance with the instructions on the proxy form, however, please ensure you also add your full name, post code and shareholder reference number if known. Once completed and signed, please scan or take a picture of your proxy form and e-mail this to

To be valid, your proxy instruction must be received by Equiniti by no later than 12noon on 22 April 2020.

Please remember that if you are the beneficial owner of shares who has been nominated by a registered holder to enjoy information rights, in order to vote you must contact the registered holder of the shares i.e. the nominee or custodian who looks after your shares on your behalf.
