Annual General Meeting

2020 AGM Arrangements

The Board continues to closely monitor the evolving situation with COVID-19 (Coronavirus) with respect to our forthcoming AGM to be held on 12 June 2020. In order to ensure the health and safety of shareholders and Bakkavor staff, shareholders should note that this year’s AGM will focus only on those matters required by law and regulation.

At the time of writing, in light of the current UK Government measures on staying at home and away from others (social distancing) to reduce the transmission of COVID-19, and specifically the avoidance of gatherings and non-essential use of public transport, shareholders are urged not to attend the meeting in person this year if the measures continue to be the same or even more restrictive. The Chair of the Meeting may also need to take such action considered appropriate to ensure the safety of people attending the Meeting with the likelihood that the AGM will be held as a closed meeting. Pending further developments and guidance, the Board therefore:

  • Strongly recommends that you fill in the proxy form sent to you with the Notice and return it in accordance with the instructions printed on the form. It must be received by the Company’s Registrar, Equiniti Limited of Aspect House, Spencer Road, Lancing, West Sussex, BN99 6DA as soon as possible but, in any event, no later than 10.00am on Wednesday 10 June 2020. Shareholders are reminded of their right, and are being encouraged, to appoint the Chair of the Meeting as their proxy to attend the Meeting and vote on their behalf.
  • Encourages you to submit any question that you would like answered at your Meeting by sending it, together with your name as it appears on the Company’s register of members to the following email address: Company.Secretariat@bakkavor.com so as to be received no later than 10.00am on Wednesday 10 June 2020. We will publish these questions and answers on our website after the Meeting.

Updates on the status of the AGM and any changes to the proceedings of the Meeting will be announced to the market via a regulatory information service and published on Bakkavor.com and it is recommended that you check for updates regularly.

An interim payment of 2 pence per share was paid in September 2019.
