The Board of Directors of Impact Healthcare REIT plc (ticker: IHR), the real estate investment trust which gives investors exposure to a diversified portfolio of UK healthcare real estate assets, in particular care homes, is pleased to announce that the 2020 Notice of Annual General Meeting is now available to view on the Company’s website at https://www.impactreit.uk/investors/reporting-centre/.
The Company’s Annual General Meeting will be held at 9.00 a.m. on Thursday, 18 June 2020 at the offices of the Investment Manager at 4th Floor, Heddon House, 149/151 Regent Street, London, W1B 4JD.
The formal Notice of the Annual General Meeting will be posted to those shareholders who have requested that the Company should continue with postal correspondence and in accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.1 copies of the documents have been submitted to the UK Listing Authority and will shortly be available for inspection from the National Storage Mechanism at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism.
As you may know, we are required by law to hold an AGM within six months of our financial year end. Given the unprecedented circumstances, the Board will be moving forward with the AGM but has decided to put in place contingency arrangements that mean the AGM will not follow its usual format. Only the statutory, formal business (consisting of voting on the resolutions proposed in the Notice of AGM) to meet the minimum legal requirements will be conducted and the AGM.
Although this is a very unusual approach, the Board considers that given the social distancing measures currently in force and in light of the latest published government guidance, proceeding with a “technical” AGM is in the best interests not only of the Company, but also of each of its individual shareholders.
If circumstances change and if social distancing measures are further relaxed before the AGM, the Company will consider these changes and if it is appropriate notify shareholders of any changes to the proposed format for the AGM as soon as possible via RIS and its website (https://www.impactreit.uk).
Full details of the measures implemented by the Company to allow for the orderly conduct of the AGM can be found in the Notice of AGM.
