The Company announces that the Annual Report 2020 and AGM circular have today been posted or otherwise made available to shareholders.
Copies of the above documents have been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism.
Printed copies of the Annual Report 2020 and AGM documents are available on request from the Company Secretary at Persimmon Plc, Persimmon House, Fulford, York, YO19 4FE and are also available to view on our Company website at www.persimmonhomes.com/corporate/investors.
Annual General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting will be held at 12 noon on Wednesday 28 April 2021 at Persimmon House, Fulford, York, YO19 4FE. In view of the continuing Covid-19 restrictions we are not expecting to be able to allow shareholders to attend the Annual General Meeting in person again this year. However, the Annual General Meeting will be able to be viewed by shareholders via a webcast. We currently expect that the Annual General Meeting will be held with only the minimum number of shareholders present as is required to form a quorum under the Company's articles of association, each of whom is expected to be a Director of Persimmon.
In order to provide shareholders with an opportunity to present questions to the Board and to hear their answers before casting their votes, we have arranged a separate interactive Virtual Shareholder Engagement Event in which shareholders are invited to participate remotely. The arrangements for the Virtual Shareholder Engagement Event are explained below.
Given the constantly evolving nature of the situation, pending further developments and guidance, your Board will continue to closely monitor the situation in the lead up to the Annual General Meeting and will make any further updates on the Company's website. Please ensure you regularly check for any updates concerning the Annual General Meeting on the Company's website. https://www.persimmonhomes.com/corporate/investors/shareholder-information/meeting-information.
Shareholders are encouraged to vote in advance of the Annual General Meeting by completing a Form of Proxy and appointing the Chairman of the meeting as your proxy. This will ensure that if, due to Covid-19 restrictions, shareholders or their proxies cannot attend the meeting, your votes will be cast at the meeting by the Chairman. Proxy votes must be received by no later than 12 noon on 26 April 2021.
Virtual Shareholder Engagement Event
The Virtual Shareholder Engagement Event will be held at 9.00 am on 23 April 2021. The Virtual Shareholder Engagement Event is designed to enable shareholders to participate and interact with the Board remotely and where they wish to do so, to ask live questions before casting their proxy votes for the Annual General Meeting. To make the Virtual Shareholder Engagement Event as useful as possible, it would be helpful if shareholders would submit any questions that they would like to put to the Directors in advance, before 12 noon on 22 April 2021.
Further details about both the Annual General Meeting and the Virtual Shareholder Engagement Event can be located in the Notice of Annual General Meeting at www.persimmonhomes.com/corporate/investors.
