Notice of Annual General Meeting
Notice is hereby given that an Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) of Victoria Oil & Gas Plc will be held on Monday 29 June 2020, at 11.00 am. at the offices of Kerman & Co LLP, 200 Strand, London, WC2R 1DJ.
A detailed explanation of the resolutions to be proposed at the AGM are set out in the Notice of the Meeting (pdf below).
Attendance Restrictions and Voting at the AGM
The Board has had to make some changes to the format of the AGM this year due to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and the restrictions imposed by the Government on public gatherings. It will not be possible therefore for Shareholders to attend the AGM in person. We are disappointed that these measures have to be adopted and appreciate our Shareholders’ understanding during these extraordinary circumstances.
The AGM will take place with presence of a minimum quorum arranged by the Company and will be facilitated in line with the Government’s strict social distancing advice. At the AGM, only formal business of the meeting as set out in the Notice covering the customary AGM resolutions will be carried out, except for the resolution to receive the Annual Report and Accounts for the year ended 31 December 2019 (‘2019 Annual Accounts’), which will be put to shareholders in due course at a separate General Meeting of the Company (“General Meeting”). Further details regarding the publication of the 2019 Annual Accounts and the General Meeting will be announced in due course.
The Board encourages Shareholders to vote electronically and to appoint the Chair of the meeting as their proxy with their voting instructions. All valid proxy votes, whether submitted electronically or in hard copy form, will be included in the poll to be taken at the meeting. There will be no presentation on business operations or a Q&A session at the AGM.
We acknowledge that in usual circumstances the AGM provides a valued opportunity to communicate with our Shareholders. The Board intends to arrange alternative means of maintaining Shareholder engagement at the General Meeting where the 2019 Annual Accounts are received by the Shareholders.
