Annual Report & Accounts

Next 15 announces that it has today posted its annual report and accounts for the year ended 31 January 2021, together with the notice of annual general meeting (‘AGM’) to its shareholders.

Copies of the annual report and accounts and the notice of AGM are now also available to download from the Company's website, www.next15.com.

Annual General Meeting

It is our current intention to hold the AGM at our offices located at 75 Bermondsey Street, London SE1 3XF, on 24 June 2021 at 3.00 p.m. However, it is possible that the restrictions imposed as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic may still be in place at that time, and therefore the arrangements for the AGM may be subject to change, possibly at short notice.

If the measures that the UK government has put in place as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic remain in place at the time of the AGM, for the safety of our shareholders, our employees, our advisers and the general public, attendance at the AGM in person will not be possible and shareholders or their appointed proxies (other than the Chair of the AGM) will not be permitted entry to the AGM. In such circumstances, the Company will put in place arrangements such that the legal requirements to hold the meeting can be satisfied and the meeting will proceed with only such attendees, employees and AGM support staff as are strictly required and will include only the formal business set out in the notice of AGM.

At the time of writing, these measures are in place and shareholders should not attend the AGM in person; however, we will notify you ahead of the AGM if we consider that you will be able to attend in person.

If the measures imposed by the UK government are lifted to the extent that you are able to attend the AGM, we anticipate that the usual format of our AGM will nevertheless be condensed. In order to allow us to conduct the AGM efficiently so that we do not unnecessarily risk the health of any attendees, our employees and AGM support staff, the AGM will focus solely on the formal business set out in the notice of AGM, and unfortunately that means we will not hold our CEO presentation, nor will we provide food or refreshments.

The Board values the opportunity to meet shareholders and respond to any questions you may have. In common with many companies our size, the Company does not have power under its Articles of Association to hold ‘hybrid’ or virtual general meetings, and consequently a resolution is proposed to amend the Articles of Association to, among other things, accommodate hybrid and, in exceptional circumstances, virtual meetings going forward.

As we did last year, we will continue to engage with shareholders safely following the AGM in the event that you are unable to attend, including through an online interactive webcast. Details of this and any changes to the AGM will be made available via our website at www.next15.com/investors/annual-general-meeting.

In light of the above, we strongly encourage you to vote on all resolutions by completing an online proxy appointment form in advance of the meeting, appointing the Chair of the meeting as your proxy, whether or not you are ultimately able to attend in person. Details of how to do this are set out below. Please note that if you appoint a person other than the Chair of the meeting as your proxy, in the event that the measures put in place by the UK government remain in place, your proxy will not be able to attend the AGM and your votes will not be counted.
