Shareholders Entitled to Notice of and to Vote at the Annual General Meeting
The Board has fixed the close of business on August 22, 2018 as the date for determining those holders of ordinary shares (collectively, the Shareholders) who will be entitled to notice of and to vote at the Annual General Meeting. Copies of the Notice of Annual General Meeting, this Proxy Statement, the accompanying Form of Proxy appointing a proxy or proxies, and the notice of availability of the Companys annual report on Form 20-F for the financial year ended March 31, 2018 (the Annual Report) were first mailed to Shareholders on or about August 22, 2018. Shareholders are advised to read this Proxy Statement carefully prior to returning their Form of Proxy.
A Shareholder is a person whose name appears on our Register of Members as a holder of our ordinary shares.
At the close of business on June 30, 2018 there were 50,923,080 ordinary shares issued and outstanding (excluding 4,400,000 treasury shares).
No business may be transacted at any general meeting unless a quorum of Shareholders entitled to vote at the meeting is present. Pursuant to the Articles of Association of the Company, the quorum for the holding of general meetings is not less than two Shareholders present in person or by proxy holding ordinary shares conferring not less than one-third of the total voting rights. If a quorum is not present, the Annual General Meeting will be adjourned to 11:00 a.m. (Jersey time) on October 4, 2018 at 22 Grenville Street, St Helier, Jersey JE4 8PX, Channel Islands.
To be valid, the instrument appointing a proxy or proxies, and any power of attorney or other authority (e.g. board minutes) under which it is signed (or a notarially certified copy of any such power or authority), must be deposited at our registered office at 22 Grenville Street, St Helier, Jersey JE4 8PX, Channel Islands (Attn: Mourant Governance Services (Jersey) Limited) not less than 48 hours before the time appointed for the holding of the Annual General Meeting or any adjournment thereof or for the taking of a poll at which the proxy proposes to vote. A proxy need not be a Shareholder. Shareholders may appoint any member of the Board or any other person as their proxy. The appointment of a proxy will not prevent a Shareholder from subsequently attending and voting at the meeting in person.
