Shareholders are recommended to submit their proxy appointment and/or voting instructions electronically, rather than by post. Votes that are cast electronically will be automatically counted.
To appoint a proxy and to register any voting preference online, go to www.sharevote.co.uk and enter the Voting ID, Task ID and Shareholder Reference Number provided on the proxy form; or if the shareholder already has a portfolio registered with the Company's registrar, Equiniti, go to www.shareview.co.uk using their usual user ID and password, and clicking on the link to vote, and following the website instructions.
The voting results from the AGM will be announced through a Regulatory Information Service and made available on the Company's website at www.woodplc.com/investors/annual-general-meeting as soon as practicable following the AGM.
In order to comply with UK and Scottish Government guidance and restrictions aimed at controlling the spread of Covid-19 and to protect the health and safety of our employees and shareholders, the Company will arrange to hold the AGM with the minimum attendance required, the quorum being achieved through the attendance of employee shareholders. No other person, including shareholders, will be permitted to attend the AGM and any person seeking to attend the meeting will be refused entry.
If circumstances change before the AGM is held, it may become possible to permit shareholders to attend in person, subject to safety constraints and UK and Scottish Government guidelines. If that is the case, we will review the position and notify shareholders as early as possible before the date of the meeting. Any updates to the position will be announced via a Regulatory Information Service and also be included on our website at www.woodplc.com/investors/annual-general-meeting.
