Update on arrangements for the Annual General Meeting ("AGM") in light of COVID-19

The Company notes the current guidance issued by the UK Government following the publication of the Company's Notice of AGM on 26 March 2021. The Company's AGM will still be held at Park Plaza Victoria Hotel, 239 Vauxhall Bridge Road, Pimlico, London, SW1V 1EQ at 2:00 pm on Tuesday 18 May 2021.


However, at present, uncertainty remains as to the freedom people will have to meet in groups on 18 May 2021 and the Board advises shareholders not to attend the meeting in person.  


Shareholders are encouraged to submit their votes, and appoint the Chairman as their proxy, electronically in accordance with the voting instructions set out on pages 8 and 9 of the Notice of AGM and as soon as possible. The voting instructions of UK registered shareholders must be received by the Company's registrars in the UK by 2:00 pm (UK time) on Friday 14 May 2021 and South African registered shareholders must submit their voting instructions to their Central Securities Depository Participant or broker by 3.00 pm (SAST) on Thursday 13 May 2021.

All valid proxy appointments will be included in the poll to be taken at the AGM. The results of voting will be announced to the London Stock Exchange and the Johannesburg Stock Exchange and published on the Company's website after the conclusion of the AGM.

We remain committed to engaging directly with our shareholders and offering alternative means of communication during the pandemic. Shareholders wishing to raise any questions relating to the business of the AGM may do so by submitting them to the Company Secretary ahead of the meeting at [email protected] .  We will endeavour to answer pre-submitted questions (received by Wednesday, 12 May 2021) on the shareholder information area of the Company's website as soon as possible following receipt.

As the capacity at Park Plaza due to the current restrictions is limited, shareholders wishing to attend in person are kindly requested to notify the Company's Registrar, Link Group, by post at 10th Floor, Central Square, 29 Wellington Street, Leeds LS1 4DL or by telephone on 0371 6640300 at least 48 hours in advance, so that appropriate arrangements to ensure safety of all participants can be made.  Anyone attending in person will be required to wear a facemask and use hand sanitiser before entering the meeting room. Due to the restrictions, we regret that there will not be an opportunity to meet with the Directors before or after the meeting nor will we be able to serve refreshments.  

The situation in relation to COVID-19 continues to develop. The Board encourages shareholders to monitor the Company's website and regulatory news services for any updates in relation to the AGM. The Board would like to take this opportunity to thank all shareholders for their support and understanding in these challenging circumstances.
