shareholders’ attention is also drawn to the guidance from authorities regarding the need for social distancing,
and therefore shareholders are encouraged to make use of proxies for purposes of voting at the annual general
To the extent that the annual general meeting will be held entirely via electronic means, shareholders will be
advised thereof by way of an announcement published on SENS during the week prior to the date of such
meeting. Shareholders are referred to the revised notice of annual general meeting and the Appendix 1 thereto
for instructions on how to participate electronically at the annual general meeting.
