2020 annual report and notice of agm

 

 

In accordance with the Financial Conduct Authority's ("FCA") Listing Rule 9.6.1, today Centamin has submitted the 2021 Notice of Annual General Meeting ("the Notice") and the 2020 Annual Report and Accounts ("2020 Annual Report") for the twelve months ended 31 December 2020 to the National Storage Mechanism.

Both documents will shortly be available for inspection at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism and the Company's website www.centamin.com.

Mailing of the Notice, proxy forms for the 2021 Annual General Meeting ("AGM") and related ancillary documentation to shareholders will commence shortly.

2021 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

The AGM is to be held on 11 May 2021 at the Company's registered office, 2 Mulcaster Street, St Helier, Jersey, JE2 3NJ at 11:00 am (BST). The business to be considered by shareholders at the AGM is set out in the Notice, which includes explanatory notes on each of the resolutions.

Our preference would have been to welcome shareholders in person to our 2021 AGM, particularly given the constraints we faced in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. However, at the date of the Notice, the UK and Jersey Government regulations remain in place restricting indoor public gatherings. We will therefore be holding the AGM at the Company's registered office with the minimum attendance required to form a quorum (facilitated by the Company). Unless the regulations and measures in force at the date of this Notice have changed or expired by the date of the AGM, shareholders will not be permitted to attend the AGM in person but can be represented by the chair of the Meeting acting as their proxy. Any updates to the position and information will be found on the Company's website and via a regulatory news announcement.

Shareholders will be able to complete and submit their votes online or if they prefer, they can complete and return the Proxy Form to the registrar in advance of the 2021 AGM. Given the current restrictions around both travel and indoor gatherings, we are currently planning on the basis that shareholders will not be permitted to attend the Meeting in person.  We therefore recommend that all shareholders complete and submit their votes online or complete and return the Proxy Form to our Registrars as soon as possible, and no later than 11.00am (BST) on 7 May 2021, appointing the chair of the Meeting as their proxy. This will ensure that shareholder votes will be counted even if, as seems likely, attendance at the AGM is restricted or a shareholder is unable to attend in person.

All resolutions for consideration at the AGM will be voted on a poll, rather than a show of hands and all valid proxy votes cast will count towards the poll votes.
