AGM Information

AGM 2020

The 2020 AGM will be held at 11:00am on Wednesday 12 August 2020.

IMPORTANT INFORMATION

As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are making changes to the way in which we conduct this year’s Annual General Meeting. Premier Foods understands and respects the importance of the Annual General Meeting to shareholders and the Board greatly values the opportunity to meet shareholders in person. However, the health and safety of our shareholders, employees and the broader community is of paramount importance. 

In light of the UK Government’s current guidance on public gatherings, and the new regulations set out in Schedule 14 of the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act, the Board has concluded that shareholders cannot be permitted to attend the AGM in person this year.

The AGM will be held by electronic means and will be kept as concise and efficient as possible with the minimum necessary quorum of two shareholders in order to conduct the business of the meeting. The format of the meeting will be purely functional to comply with relevant legal requirements. 

Instead of attending this year’s AGM, shareholders are asked to exercise their votes by submitting their proxy electronically or by post as soon as possible, and these must be received by no later than 11.00 am on Monday 10 August 2020. Shareholders who wish to appoint a proxy are recommended to appoint the chair of the meeting as their proxy. As a result of the current Government restrictions, if a shareholder appoints someone else as their proxy, that proxy will not be able to attend the meeting in order to cast the shareholder’s vote.

Your votes do matter. Proxy instructions (which include the ability to lodge proxies electronically) are set out below. Shareholders are also invited to submit questions in advance of the meeting via email at [email protected]  by no later than 11.00 am on Monday 10 August 2020. We will endeavour to answer questions received in advance, by publishing responses on thematic topics on our website either prior to, or shortly after, the Annual General Meeting.

We will continue to monitor the evolving impact of the pandemic and, if it becomes appropriate or necessary to make changes to the proposed format of the 2020 AGM, we will inform shareholders as soon as we can. 
We would like to thank all shareholders for their co-operation and understanding.

A form of proxy is enclosed for your use in connection with this general meeting (the “Meeting”). You are asked to vote at the Meeting.

THE ENCLOSED CIRCULAR IS MADE AVAILABLE TO YOU FOR INFORMATION PURPOSES ONLY IN CONNECTION WITH THE RESOLUTIONS PROPOSED AT THE GENERAL MEETING AND DOES NOT CONSTITUTE AN OFFER OF SECURITIES FOR SALE OR A SOLICITATION OF AN OFFER TO PURCHASE ANY SECURITIES IN THE UNITED STATES (AS DEFINED IN THE U.S. SECURITIES ACT OF 1933, AS AMENDED), OR IN ANY OTHER JURISDICTION IN WHICH SUCH OFFER OR SOLICITATION IS NOT AUTHORIZED OR TO ANY PERSON TO WHOM IT IS UNLAWFUL TO MAKE SUCH OFFER OR SOLICITATION.

The securities in relation to the Rights Issue have been not and will not be registered under the US Securities Act. A prospectus has been prepared in connection with the Rights Issue (the “Prospectus”).

Instead, the underwriters to the Rights Issue will endeavour to sell the subscription rights of shareholders in the United States and other excluded territories in the market, nil-paid, by 11 April 2014, in each case for the benefit of such persons if a premium over the expenses of sale can be obtained, and the net proceeds of that sale (after deduction for expenses) will be distributed pro rata to the persons entitled thereto in accordance with the provisions of the Prospectus.
