AGM 2021

At the time of issuing the Notice of AGM, the prevailing UK Government guidance permits the holding of a physical general meeting. We are therefore proposing to hold this year’s AGM at 11.00 am on Friday 23 July 2021 at the offices of Gowling WLG (UK) LLP, 4 More London Riverside, London, SE1 2AU, and to welcome those shareholders who we are able to accommodate safely in accordance with the UK Government’s guidance.

In order to protect the health of shareholders and colleagues, please note that the following measures will be put in place this year:

  • Attendance at the AGM will be restricted to shareholders only and no guests will be permitted to attend on this occasion.

  • To enable us to comply with the prevailing UK Government guidance and social distancing measures, shareholders wishing to attend the meeting in person must notify us by no later than 11:00 am on Monday 19 July 2021 by registering via [email protected]

  • Upon arrival at the AGM venue, any shareholders wishing to attend the meeting in person will be required to confirm that they do not have any Covid-19 symptoms and are not required to self-isolate in accordance with the UK Government’s guidance.

  • Refreshments and Company products will not be available either before or after the AGM.

  • Shareholders attending the AGM will be required to follow government guidance on the wearing of face masks.

  • As always, if shareholders are unable to attend the AGM in person, they are strongly encouraged to submit their votes by proxy.

Given the continuing uncertainty around potential changes to the UK Government’s guidance, and the duration of social distancing measures and restrictions on physical gatherings, we must ensure that we are able to adapt the proposed format of, and arrangements for, our AGM efficiently in the event of any change in circumstances. We will continue to monitor the evolving impact of the Covid-19 pandemic and the UK Government’s guidance, and will notify shareholders of any such changes as soon as practicable via our website (www.premierfoods.co.uk). Shareholders should check our website to ensure they have the most up to date information available regarding the AGM. We would like to thank all shareholders in advance for their co-operation and understanding.

Under the present circumstances, shareholders are strongly encouraged to vote in advance of the AGM by submitting a form of proxy electronically or by post as soon as possible, and these must be received by no later than 11.00 am on Wednesday 21 July 2021. Shareholders who wish to appoint a proxy are encouraged to appoint the Chairman of the meeting as their proxy.
