Jaywing plc (AIM: JWNG), the UK agency specialising in data science, announces that its notice of Annual General Meeting ("AGM"), which is to be held is to be held at the offices of Jaywing PLC, Albert Works, 71 Sidney Street, Sheffield, S1 4RG, on Tuesday 29 September 2020 at 11.00 am, has today been posted to shareholders.
The continuing coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic has led to the imposition of significant restrictions on public gatherings which probably will not have been lifted by 29 September 2020. The Annual General Meeting venue cannot accommodate a large meeting on the date of the AGM, and the Company therefore notifies its shareholders that physical attendance in person at the AGM is not possible, in which case the meeting will take place with the minimum necessary quorum of two shareholders, which will be facilitated by the Company in line with the Government’s social distancing advice as at that time.
In light of these circumstances the Board encourages shareholders to submit proxy forms and to appoint the Chairman of the meeting as their proxy with their voting instructions.
Further, it encourages shareholders to submit any question that they would like to be answered by sending it, together with their name as shown on the Company’s register of members and the number of shares held, to the following email address: [email protected] so that it is received by no later than 11.00 a.m. on 25 September 2020. The Company will endeavour to respond to all questions either on the Company’s website or respond individually.
Further to its recent announcement, the Company has been granted a three-month extension for filing its accounts, which now must be filed and published by no later than 31 December 2020. This means the audited Annual Report and Consolidated Financial Statements for the year ended 31 March 2020 are not available at the date of this letter which is the last possible date for posting if the AGM is to be held within the period currently allowed by the Companies Act 2006 (the “Act”). It is anticipated therefore that the Annual Report will be posted at a later date and a General Meeting of the Company will be convened prior to the expiry of the extension granted.
