The general meeting (the "General Meeting") will be held at the offices of W.H. Ireland Limited at 24 Martin Lane, London, EC4R 0DR, United Kingdom on 26 July 2021 at 11:00 a.m. (BST). The Company wishes to conduct the General Meeting in a way that limits the risk associated with the Coronavirus pandemic and complies with the law. In light of this, although shareholders (including their duly appointed proxies and/or corporate representatives) will be, subject to any changes to the rules which may arise after the publication of this Announcement, permitted to attend the General Meeting in person, shareholders will be discouraged from doing so.
The Company does not expect there to be any significant physical turnout by shareholders but it would help the Company's planning if shareholders who wished to attend physically could email firstname.lastname@example.org by no later than 11:00 a.m. (BST) on 22 July 2021 to confirm their wish to attend in order that the Company can be confident that the facilities proposed for the General Meeting will be able to accommodate attendance in accordance with appropriate COVID procedures.
The Company remains committed to encouraging shareholder engagement on the business of the General Meeting. As such, in addition to voting by proxy, Shareholders can submit questions to the Board in advance of the General Meeting by emailing such questions to email@example.com by no later than 11:00 a.m. (BST) on 22 July 2021. The Board will consider all questions received and provide a response to those that directly relate to the matters of the General Meeting.
The situation surrounding the outbreak of COVID-19 is constantly evolving. Any changes to the arrangements for the General Meeting will be communicated to shareholders before the General Meeting, including through i3's website at https://www.i3.energy/ and by announcement via a regulatory information service.
Shareholders are strongly encouraged to appoint the Chair of the General Meeting as their proxy for the General Meeting. This will ensure that shareholders' votes will be counted even if attendance at the General Meeting is restricted or they are unable to attend.
Details of how shareholders can appoint the Chair of the General Meeting as their proxy are set out within Paragraph 7 (Action to be taken) of Part II (Letter from the Chair) of the Circular.
