Important information in relation to COVID-19 (Coronavirus)
The Company plans to conduct its EGM in accordance with the Irish Government’s COVID-19 related public health measures and public health advice. Shareholders should expect the EGM to take place under constrained circumstances.
The EGM is being held to consider a number of resolutions to be proposed in connection with the migration of securities settlement in the securities of Irish registered companies listed on Euronext Dublin and/or the London Stock Exchange (such as the Company) from the current settlement system, CREST, to the replacement system, Euroclear Bank. This migration is required as a result of Brexit.
In accordance with applicable regulations and public health guidelines in force in Ireland in connection with COVID-19, we encourage shareholders not to attend the EGM in person. Instead, we urge all shareholders, on this occasion to vote by proxy. The EGM will be as brief as possible, observing physical distancing measures; the venue will be vacated promptly after the EGM and refreshments will not be provided. Regretfully, the Board will not be available to meet with shareholders and answer questions before or after the AGM. The Company will ensure that all legal requirements of the meeting, in accordance with its Articles of Association and the Migration of Participating Securities Act 2019, are satisfied with the minimum necessary quorum of three shareholders (which will be facilitated by the Company) and physical distancing measures in place. The Company advises that shareholders who are experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms or anyone who has been in contact with any person experiencing any COVID-19 symptoms should not attend the AGM in person. The Company may put in place additional procedures or limitations on meeting attendees, including limiting seating, requiring protective masks and other reasonable or required measures in order to enter the building. No toilets will be available. The Company reserves the right to refuse entry to the meeting where reasonably necessary to comply with COVID-19 related public health measures and advice.
We will continue to closely monitor the developing situation around COVID-19, including the latest Government guidance, and how this may affect the arrangements for the AGM. Consequently, the AGM is subject to change, possibly at short notice. If it becomes necessary or appropriate to revise the current arrangements for the AGM, further information will be made available as quickly as possible by RNS and on our website at: https://www.candcgroupplc.com/EGM2021
