The Annual General Meeting of the Company will be held on Thursday, 4 February 2021 at 12 noon (the “AGM”, or the "Meeting"). Sage plans to hold the AGM at our Solicitors’ office at Allen & Overy LLP, One Bishops Square, Spitalfields, London E1 6AD. Details on the business and arrangements for the AGM are provided in our AGM Notice (the “Notice”) which can be found below.
Due to the ongoing Coronavirus pandemic (Covid-19) and compulsory government measures put in place by the UK Government, to safeguard the health and safety of our shareholders, colleagues and wider communities the Board has decided, in line with current legislation, that shareholders will not be permitted to attend the Annual General Meeting in person this year. Shareholders must register their vote in advance of the Meeting by appointing the Chairman of the Meeting as proxy, with voting instructions.
Shareholders’ views are important to us and we consider the AGM to be an important event in our calendar and a significant opportunity to engage with our shareholders. In view of the attendance and voting arrangements for this year’s AGM we recommend that you submit your questions about the business of the AGM in advance by emailing [email protected] no later than close of business on 19 January 2021. This will enable us to answer your questions before the deadline for proxy appointments, so that you can make a fully informed voting decision. We will aim to provide answers to all pre-submitted questions on our website by close of business on 26 January 2021. Please include your full name and Shareholder Reference Number (SRN) in your email.
As set out in our Notice, shareholders are invited to listen to the Meeting online and will also have the opportunity to submit questions on the day on any matter pertaining to the business of the AGM remotely.
Update to Annual General Meeting 2021
In light of the new national lockdown: Stay at Home restrictions imposed by the UK Government, the Board has decided that the 2021 Annual General Meeting will be held virtually with no physical presence at our Solicitors’ office. This decision, permitted by the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020, was taken to safeguard the safety of our colleagues and the wider community.
Please note this has no impact on the meeting date, time or arrangements we have made for our shareholders as set out on our Notice.
We thank you for your continued interest in Sage.
