Annual Report and Accounts 2020 and Notice of 2021 Annual General Meeting

Following the announcement on 10 March 2021 of its preliminary results for the year ended 31 December 2020, Foxtons Group plc (the "Company") announces that it has published its Annual Report and Accounts 2020.

Annual General Meeting Arrangements

The Company's Annual General Meeting (the "AGM" or the "Meeting") will be held on Thursday, 22 April 2021 at 10.00am. 

 

Our preference had been to welcome shareholders in person to the Meeting, particularly given the constraints we faced in 2020 due to the Covid-19 pandemic. At present, however, public health guidance and legislation issued by the UK Government in relation to the pandemic mean that there are continuing restrictions on public gatherings and travel. In light of these measures, together with the uncertainty as to any additional and/or alternative measures that may be put in place by the UK Government, and in order to protect the health and safety of the Company's shareholders, employees and Directors, we are planning to hold our AGM as a closed meeting. This means that shareholders and other attendees will not currently be permitted to attend the AGM in person, save for such persons nominated by the Chairman of the Meeting in order to establish a quorum. The Company will continue to monitor public health guidance and legislation issued by the UK Government in relation to the Covid-19 pandemic. However, given the constantly evolving nature of the situation, should it become possible to revise the current arrangement for the AGM, any such changes will be notified to shareholders through our website (www.foxtonsgroup.co.uk) and, where appropriate, by announcement made by the Company to a Regulatory Information Service.

 

Instead of attending this year's AGM, shareholders are asked to exercise their votes by submitting their proxy electronically and these must be received by no later than 10.00 a.m. on Tuesday, 20 April 2021. Shareholders who wish to appoint a proxy are recommended to appoint the Chairman of the Meeting as their proxy. As a result of the current UK Government restrictions, if a shareholder appoints someone else as their proxy, that proxy will not be able to attend the Meeting in order to cast the shareholder's vote.

 

To ensure that shareholders still have an opportunity to engage with the Board, shareholders are also invited to submit questions in advance of the Meeting via email at investor@foxtonsgroup.co.uk by no later than 10.00 am on 13 April 2021. We will endeavour to answer questions received in advance, and ahead of the proxy voting deadline, and responses to questions will, where appropriate, be posted on our website.

Copies of the Annual Report and Accounts 2020 and the Notice of the 2021 AGM are available to view on the Company's website at www.foxtonsgroup.co.uk.  They will also shortly be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and be available for inspection at https://www.fca.org.uk/markets/primary-markets/regulatory-disclosures/national-storage-mechanism.

Copies of those documents are being posted or made available to the Company's shareholders today.
