A copy of the notice of the annual general meeting of the Company (the “2021 AGM Notice”) to be held at the offices of the Company’s Solicitors, Druces LLP, Salisbury House, London Wall, London EC2M 5PS at 11 a.m. on 24 June 2021 (the “AGM”), has been published today on the Company’s website at www.kavangoresources.com .
The health and safety of the Company’s shareholders, customers and staff are of paramount importance. Although our preference had been to welcome shareholders to our AGM, due to the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the UK Government’s current restrictions as at the date of the 2021 AGM Notice on public gatherings, the format of the AGM will be the same as last year to protect the health and safety of our shareholders, directors and people. To comply with these requirements, and with current best practice regarding the holding of company meetings, shareholders will not be permitted to attend this year’s AGM. Attendance will be limited to essential Company personnel only, ensuring that social distance requirements are met while ensuring also that a quorum is present so that the business of the meeting can be conducted. All other shareholders will be excluded from the AGM on the grounds of public safety. Shareholders should monitor the Company’s website and regulatory announcements for any updates regarding the AGM and are encouraged to ensure that their votes on the resolutions to be proposed at the meeting are counted. Details of how to do so are set out in the 2021 AGM Notice.
At the meeting, the Board of Directors are delighted to be proposing the appointment of Hillary Nyakunengwa Gumbo as a non-executive Director. Hillary, who was one of the founders of Kavango Minerals (Pty) Limited, the Company’s operating subsidiary in Botswana, has been an important member of the Company’s executive team for some years, and the Directors feel that the Board would be strengthened by his appointment as an additional director.
In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.1 of the UK Financial Conduct Authority (“FCA”), a copy of the 2021 AGM Notice and a form of proxy for the AGM will be submitted to the FCA via the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available to the public for inspection at:
