Given the UK Government's current COVID-19 guidelines, the Board has taken the decision to hold the 2021 AGM as a closed meeting with the minimum attendance required to form a quorum (being two shareholders). No other shareholders will be permitted to physically attend the meeting. The Company requests that shareholders submit their votes by proxy either electronically or by post, in accordance with the instructions in the 2021 AGM Notice. The Company is taking these precautionary measures to safeguard its shareholders' and employees' health and make the AGM as safe and efficient as possible.

The Board greatly values the opportunity to meet its shareholders and as such we currently intend to hold a webinar immediately after the AGM at which a Group update will be provided and shareholders will be able to ask questions of the Board, both in advance and live on the day. Details of the time of the webinar and how to access it will be made available on the Group's website nearer the date of the AGM at .

The Board will keep these AGM arrangements under review and the Board will update shareholders via the Regulatory News Service ("RNS") as appropriate, with any such announcements also uploaded to the Company's website ( ) . The Company encourages shareholders to check its website regularly for the latest information on the arrangements for the AGM.
