We note the current issues surrounding Covid-19 (coronavirus) and the public health guidance at the time of writing. This includes the stringent requirements requiring UK nationals to stay at home except in certain circumstances (which do not include attending an AGM), the social distancing and shielding guidance for those over the age of 70 or with underlying medical conditions, and the ban on all non-essential travel. The health and safety of our shareholders and colleagues is always our utmost priority. Please note that as a result of this guidance the AGM will be convened with the minimum necessary quorum of three shareholders.  Other shareholders will not be able to attend the AGM in person and those that attend the venue will be refused entry on the grounds of safety. The board recognises that the AGM is an important event for all shareholders and is keen to ensure that shareholders are able to exercise their right to vote notwithstanding the restrictions on attendance in person. Therefore, we strongly encourage you to consider ensuring your vote is counted by voting electronically or by submission of a proxy form in accordance with the instructions set out below.  Although this outcome is undesirable, the directors of the company believe that, in the current circumstances, there is no alternative to ensure the health, safety and security of attendees and to allow the business of the AGM to be transacted.

We will continue to monitor the situation and the latest available public health guidance and will provide updates in relation to our AGM on our website as and when necessary.

Should you wish to raise any questions ahead of the AGM please do so via email to the

company secretary at agm@highcroftplc.com.

The Board would like to take this opportunity to thank all shareholders for their support and understanding in these unprecedented circumstances.  The results of voting will be announced to the London Stock Exchange and on our website as soon as practicable after completion of the AGM.
