Posting of Annual Report and Notice of AGM


Eckoh plc (AIM: ECK), the global provider of secure payment products and customer contact solutions, announces that its Annual General Meeting ('AGM') will be held at the offices of Eckoh plc, Telford House, Corner Hall, Hemel Hempstead, Hertfordshire HP3 9HN on 16 September 2020 at 11.00 a.m.


Following changes to company law introduced under the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020 on 26 June 2020, and as a result of the UK Government 'stay alert measures' and related guidance on social distancing and public gatherings ("COVID-19 Related Measures"), the Directors have decided that the AGM will be held on a closed basis which Shareholders will not be able to attend in person. A very limited number of persons from the Company will be present to conduct the meeting such that relevant legal requirements can be met. In addition, the Company will provide a video conference call link to enable Shareholders to follow proceedings. This decision has been taken to protect the health and safety of Shareholders in light of the COVID-19 Related Measures currently in place and recognises the possibility of increased measures being introduced nearer to the date of the AGM.


As Shareholders will not be able to attend in person, they are encouraged to pay close attention to the instructions contained in this year's AGM Notice in order to ensure their proxy votes are properly counted. All valid proxy votes to be exercised by the Chairman of the meeting will also be included in any vote taken at the meeting. The results of the votes on the proposed resolutions will be announced, in the normal way, via the Regulatory News Service as soon as practicable after the conclusion of the AGM.


Whilst this year's AGM will be closed meeting, the Board would like to assure shareholders that the measures adopted this year are temporary.


Shareholders are encouraged to raise any questions on the business of the AGM in advance of the AGM with the Company Secretary at [email protected]. Questions must be received by 6.00pm on 14 September 2020. Any questions raised by Shareholders in this manner will be answered during the AGM in the usual way.


The Company has today posted its Annual Report and Accounts for the financial year ended 31 March 2020, together with the Notice of AGM, to those Shareholders who have requested hard copies. Electronic copies of both documents are available to download on the Company's website at www.eckoh.com.
