Annual General Meeting (AGM)
We have a statutory obligation to hold the AGM, which is scheduled for 22 April 2020, within 4 months of our financial year end.
As it stands, we have several options for the meeting. One option is to hold the meeting with a minimum quorum present, or if there is no quorum the Chairman can open the meeting and adjourn it immediately, to a date to be decided in the future.
