Young & Co.’s Brewery, P.L.C. (“Young’s” or the “Company”)
Young’s announces that its AGM, scheduled for 11.30am on Tuesday, 20 July 2021, will now be held as a combined physical and electronic meeting rather than just a physical meeting. The Company’s board of directors (the “Board”) was looking forward to welcoming A shareholders in person to the AGM. At the time of publication of the Notice of AGM it was hoped that Step 4 of the Government’s roadmap out of lockdown would have taken place on or around 21 June, such that all legal limits on social contact would have been removed for the AGM.
Given that Step 4 has been delayed and is now expected to take place no earlier than 19 July, being the day before the AGM, there is the potential for restrictions to remain in place at the date of the AGM. On this basis and to provide certainty, the Board has now decided that it is no longer practical to hold the AGM as a physical meeting and will instead hold a combined physical and electronic meeting.
Shareholders and other attendees will not be permitted to attend the physical meeting (which will now take place at the Company’s registered office: Riverside House, 26 Osiers Road, Wandsworth, London SW18 1NH), save for such nominated persons as are required in order to establish a quorum or to otherwise conduct the business of the meeting, while observing social distancing and other COVID-19 restrictions.
A shareholders will instead be able to attend, speak and vote at the meeting remotely through an electronic platform. Those holding only non-voting shares will not be able to attend, speak or vote at the physical or electronic meeting.
All shareholders are being written to this week to explain these new arrangements.
