Further to the circular dated 23 April 2020 (the “Circular”), the purpose of this notice is to inform you of proposed changes to the structure of the extraordinary general meeting (“EGM”) of the Company to be held on 18 May 2020 in light of ongoing Covid-19 restrictions.

We consider the health of Shareholders, attendees at the EGM and the staff of the Company’s service providers a top priority.

Due to the restrictions on gatherings and travel, save for very limited purposes, under the regulations and guidance issued by the Government of Ireland relating to Covid-19, the EGM will proceed under constrained circumstances.

It is not currently possible to convene a physical EGM due to Covid-19 related issued. As such, if you wish to listen to the EGM proceedings, you can do so by availing of the telephone facility and dialling-in to the following number at the time of the meeting:

Dial-in Code 639675#
Dial-in Number +353 1 489 7260 (Dublin)
+44 20 3773 4270 (London)
+1 917 300 2584 (New York)
+81 3 4520 9225 (Tokyo)


You will still need to submit your proxy form by the relevant deadline before the EGM, as it will not be possible to vote using the telephone facility.

The convening of the EGM telephonically does not affect any proxies which have been received to the date of this notice nor any proxies received before the proxy deadline, being 48 hours before the scheduled time for the meeting.

Should you have any questions relating to these matters, you should either contact us at the above address or alternatively you should contact your investment consultant, tax adviser and/or legal adviser as appropriate.
