Annual General Meeting (AGM)
As announced to the market on 24 March 2020, the Board has taken the decision to change the venue and time of the 2020 AGM. As such, the Company’s eighty-fifth Annual General Meeting is to be held at Gate House, Turnpike Road, High Wycombe, Buckinghamshire, HP12 3NR on Thursday 23rd April at 9:00am.
The Board considers the well-being of our shareholders, employees and customers as a top priority and we recommend that shareholders adhere to current Government instruction to stay at home. To enable shareholders to listen to the proceedings of the meeting from their homes we will be sending out a communication to all shareholders providing dial-in details. There will be an opportunity for shareholders to ask the Board of Directors questions on the formal business of the meeting via the telephone dial-in facilities.
The Company will ensure that the meeting adheres to the Government’s advice around social distancing and enhanced hygiene measures will be in place. To further support these efforts there will be only limited Company representation at the meeting. We will also reduce the length of the meeting by limiting it to the formal business required. There will be no corporate presentation or refreshments available.
Shareholders are encouraged to submit their proxies as early as possible, even if they intend to attend the meeting in person. Further information on how shareholders can submit their proxies can be found in the Notice of Annual General Meeting. Please note that, due to the earlier time of the AGM, proxies must be received by 9:00am on 21 April 2020.
Shareholders with a small number of shares may find that the value of these shares is uneconomical for them to sell. If this is the case, you may want to consider donating them to charity through ShareGift, a registered charity administered by the Orr Mackintosh Foundation. The donated shares will be sold and the proceeds distributed to various recognised charities.
Further information is available at www.sharegift.org or by calling 020 7337 0501.
It has been brought to our attention that Taylor Wimpey shareholders are again being targeted by ‘specialist brokers’ using the offer of unrealistic prices for Taylor Wimpey shares to attract interest and high pressure sales techniques offering opportunities which often turn out to be worthless or high risk investments.
This practice is commonly known as a ‘boiler room scam’ and may be in the form of a telephone call or in writing. Please visit our boiler room scams page for guidance on what to do if you have received an unsolicited call and advice on how to avoid them in the future.
