Following the UK Government's introduction of social distancing measures and guidance on non-essential travel and public gatherings, the Company will not be able to hold the AGM in the normal way and as such shareholders will not be permitted to attend the AGM in person.

As shareholders cannot attend in person, the Board encourages all shareholders to vote by submitting a proxy in advance of the AGM. To ensure that their vote counts, shareholders should only appoint the Chair of the AGM to act as their proxy. Given the current circumstances, we strongly encourage shareholders to vote online via www.signalshares.com by logging on, selecting the "Proxy Voting" link and following the instructions given. If you have not previously registered for electronic communications, you will first be asked to register as a new user, for which you will require your investor code (which can be found on your share certificate). Shareholders who hold their shares in the CREST system should lodge their votes electronically in the ordinary course.

The Company will also, before the meeting, produce a recording in which David Cicurel will answer questions submitted to the Company in writing by shareholders no later than close of business on 12 May 2020. Shareholders who wish to submit a question should email [email protected] with their name and shareholding. We cannot guarantee all questions will be able to be answered during this recording.
