Mailing of 2020 annual report and AGM notice
27 May 2021
Velocys plc (VLS.L), the sustainable fuels technology company, is pleased to announce that copies of the 2020 annual report and accounts, together with the notice of Annual General Meeting, have been sent to all registered shareholders and is available for viewing on the Company’s website, www.velocys.com.
Annual General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting will be held at 10.45 am on Wednesday 23 June 2021 at the Magdalen Centre, Robert Robinson Avenue, The Oxford Science Park, Oxford OX4 4GA.
In light of public health advice in response to the COVID-19 outbreak, including to limit travel and public gatherings, the Company strongly encourages all shareholders to submit their proxy, appointing the Chairman of the AGM as proxy. The UK Government has published its plans towards the removal, with effect from 21 June 2021, of the measures introduced and aimed at controlling the spread of COVID-19 (“COVID-19 Measures”). However, at the latest practical date prior to printing this Notice, there is no certainty that the COVID-19 Measures will no longer apply on 23 June 2021, the date of the AGM, and the AGM has therefore been arranged on the assumption that some or all of the COVID-19 Measures will continue to apply. Therefore the arrangements for the AGM are subject to change, possibly at short notice.
At the time of writing, the COVID-19 Measures are in place, and as a result, the AGM will be held as a closed meeting, and Shareholders will not be allowed to attend the AGM in person.
The situation regarding COVID-19 is constantly evolving, and the UK Government may change current restrictions or implement further measures relating to the holding of general meetings during the affected period. Any changes to the AGM (including any change to the location of the AGM) will be communicated to Shareholders before the meeting through our website at www.velocys.com and, where appropriate, by announcement made by the Company to a Regulatory Information Service.
Full information is set out in the notice of Annual General Meeting.
