Anglo Asian Mining plc (“Anglo Asian” or the “Company”), the AIM listed gold, copper and silver producer focused in Azerbaijan, is pleased to announce that its Annual Report and Accounts (‘Annual Report’) for the year ended 31 December 2021 has been posted today to shareholders along with the notice of Annual General Meeting (“AGM”) and form of proxy.
The Company’s AGM will be held at 11:00am on 23 June 2022 at 33 St. James’s Square, London SW1Y 4JS. Due to the recent lifting of COVID-19 pandemic restrictions in the United Kingdom, the AGM will be held as an “Open” meeting and all shareholders are warmly welcome to attend. Although the Company does not anticipate there being any changes to the UK Government’s COVID-19 guidelines (“Government Guidance”), the Company will continue to monitor the situation and, depending on the outcome, may decide that it would not be possible for shareholders to attend the AGM in person. We therefore advise shareholders to check the Company’s website www.angloasianmining.com in advance of the AGM in case there are changes to the AGM meeting arrangements in order to comply with Government Guidance.
CREST members who wish to appoint a proxy or proxies by utilising the CREST electronic proxy appointment service may do so for the meeting and any adjournment(s) thereof by utilising the procedures described in the CREST Manual. CREST personal members or other CREST sponsored members, and those CREST members who have appointed a voting service provider(s), should refer to their CREST sponsor or voting service provider(s), who will be able to take the appropriate action on their behalf.
In order for a proxy appointment made by means of CREST to be valid, the appropriate CREST message (“a CREST Proxy Instruction”) must be properly authenticated in accordance with Euroclear UK & Ireland Limited’s (“EUI”) specifications and must contain the information required for such instructions, as described in the CREST Manual. The message must be transmitted so as to be received by the issuer’s agent (“RA10”) by 11.00am on 21 June 2022 or if the meeting is adjourned, at least 48 hours before the start of the adjourned meeting. For this purpose, the time of receipt will be taken to be the time (as determined by the timestamp applied to the message by the CREST Applications Host) from which the issuer’s agent is able to retrieve the message by enquiry to CREST in the manner prescribed by CREST.
The Annual Report, notice of AGM and form of proxy are now available for download on the Company’s website at www.angloasianmining.com.
