Notice of AGM
The Company’s AGM has been convened for Wednesday, 11 November 2020 at 10.00 a.m. at the offices of Macfarlanes LLP, 20 Cursitor Street, London EC4A 1LT.
Given the unprecedented circumstances and the measures in place to combat the COVID-19 pandemic, the Company has regrettably concluded that it will not be possible to hold the AGM following the normal format. Whilst the Company has decided to hold the AGM as a closed meeting with the minimum quorum of shareholders present to conduct the formal business in accordance with the provisions of the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020, the Board recognises that the AGM provides an important opportunity to engage with Shareholders and that, notwithstanding the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, it is important to maintain that. Accordingly, Shareholders will be able to view the AGM live and ask questions during the meeting, once they have registered their attendance on https://webcasting.brrmedia.co.uk/broadcast/5f84258ac4d0076f2b93e2b1.
Shareholders will have a reasonable opportunity to make comments and ask questions on all the items of business set out in this Notice of AGM via this live facility during the meeting (including a reasonable opportunity to ask questions of the Company’s investment adviser). Please note that shareholders participating in the AGM via this live facility will not, as a technical matter, be formally in attendance at the meeting.
Shareholders may also submit questions in advance of the AGM by email to SUPR2020@atratocapital.com by 5.00 p.m. on 9 November 2020. Shareholders will need to include their shareholder reference number along with any questions. The Chairman of the AGM will endeavour to address the key themes raised during the meeting but please note that individual responses will not be sent to Shareholders.
Further details on how to register for the webcast are set out in the Chairman’s letter accompanying the Notice of AGM and are also are available on the Company’s website at www.supermarketincomereit.com
