As time at the meeting will be short, we are sending this information to you now so that you have time to consider the topics that will be raised at the AGM. Please note that the Annual Report contains important information relating to recent instances of offers of “voluntary” severance and the use of “protected conversations”. If this is something that has affected you or any of your colleagues please let us know. If you have any questions ahead of the meeting, please contact the branch office on email@example.com.
YOU WILL BE ASKED TO VOTE ON A NUMBER OF ISSUES SO IT IS IMPORTANT THAT YOU COME TO THE AGM IN ORDER TO MAKE YOUR VOICE AND VOTE COUNT. WE REGRET THAT WE CANNOT ACCEPT PROXY VOTES.
