Annual Report and Notice of Annual General Meeting


iomart (AIM:IOM), the cloud computing company, announces that it has posted to shareholders the Annual Report & Accounts for the year ended 31 March 2020, as well as the notice of the Annual General Meeting ("AGM").


The Company's AGM will be held at the Company's offices at Lister Pavilion, Kelvin Campus, West of Scotland Science Park, Glasgow G20 0SP on 25 August 2020 at 10:00 a.m.


As a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, we are making changes to the way in which we conduct this year's AGM. In light of the UK and Scottish Government's current guidance on public gatherings, and the new regulations set out in Schedule 14 of the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act, the Board has concluded that shareholders cannot be permitted to attend the AGM in person this year.


The AGM will be held by electronic means and will be kept as concise and efficient as possible with the minimum necessary quorum of two shareholders in order to conduct the business of the meeting. The format of the meeting will be purely functional to comply with relevant legal requirements.


Instead of attending this year's AGM, shareholders are asked to exercise their votes by submitting their proxy electronically or by post as soon as possible, and these must be received by no later than 10.00 am on Friday 21 August 2020. Shareholders who wish to appoint a proxy are recommended to appoint the chair of the meeting as their proxy. As a result of the current 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. 


The Board is also inviting shareholders who have questions to submit their questions to the Company Secretary by emailing agm2020@iomart.com in advance of the AGM and also no later than 10.00 am on Friday 21 August 2020.  Answers to these questions will be provided by the Board following the conclusion of the AGM.


A copy of the Annual Report & Accounts and notice of AGM are also available on the Company's website at https://www.iomart.com/investors/financial-reports/
