Incanthera plc (AQSE: INC), the specialist oncology company focused on innovative technologies in oncology and dermatology, announces an update to the current Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) arrangements, as announced on 19 May 2021.
Incanthera's AGM is currently due to be held at the offices of Gateley Plc, Ship Canal House, 98 King Street, Manchester, M2 4WU at 11:00 a.m. on Wednesday, 23 June 2021.
Announcements made by the Government this week, have identified Greater Manchester as an area of concern relating to increasing cases of the COVID-19 Delta variant, and as such travel in or out of the identified area is discouraged.
Accordingly, the meeting location to host the minimum attendance necessary to form a quorum (which will be facilitated by the Company) has been moved from the Greater Manchester area to the Marriott Hotel, Breadsall Priory, Derby.
The Meeting will focus on the formal business of the meeting only.
Legislation and government guidance in the United Kingdom continues to place restrictions on public gatherings and we have previously advised that Shareholders are not encouraged to attend the meeting in person. Given the recent new advice on rising cases, and unnecessary travel, the health and safety of our Shareholders remains a priority. Accordingly, we regretfully advise that although we have moved the location of the AGM, we are still advising shareholders not to attend the meeting in person.
All other details as advised in the Notice of AGM, posted to Shareholders on 19 May, remain as follows:
In order to ensure that shareholders are able to follow the proceedings of the AGM, the Company will provide access online through the Investor Meet Company platform. However, shareholders will not be able to vote online during the Meeting and are therefore urged to submit their votes via proxy, if they have not already done so, as early as possible, electronically or by post.
These documents are also available, in electronic form, for download on the Company's website: www.incanthera.com
Shareholders are also invited to submit written questions for the Board to consider. Questions can be pre submitted in advance of the AGM via the Investor Meet Company Platform up to 9.00 a.m. on 22 June 2021, being the day before the AGM, or via the Investor Meet Platform at any time during the AGM itself.
The Board will respond to key questions during the meeting and will provide such answers on its website thereafter.
Shareholders who wish to attend the AGM online should register for the event in advance via the following link:
The Board would like to take this opportunity to thank Shareholders for their understanding and support of the necessary precautions taken during this time.
