“As the AGM season rapidly approaches, companies need to manage the risks presented by the spread of coronavirus transparently whilst ensuring shareholders continue to have the maximum opportunity to have their say.
The Guidance offers practical support for companies on holding AGMs and they should familiarise themselves with it now to manage any risks whilst meeting their reporting responsibilities.”
