Publication of Circular and Notice of Extraordinary General Meeting
4 December 2020
On 17 November 2020, Integrated Diagnostics Holdings plc ("IDH" or the "Company") announced that it was contemplating a possible dual listing of its ordinary shares on the Egyptian Exchange (the "EGX"), in relation to which it was examining possible transaction structures.
Further to that announcement, the Company announces that it now intends to proceed with the proposed dual listing on the EGX and has today published a circular outlining the details of the dual listing (the "Circular"), the necessary shareholder resolutions to be considered at an Extraordinary General Meeting (the "EGM") and the Notice of EGM.
The EGM will be held on Wednesday, 23 December 2020 at 1.00 pm (GMT) / 3.00 pm local time (EET) at the Headquarters of IDH, Building B216-F7, Smart Village, Giza, Egypt.
Due to the ongoing restrictions and safety concerns as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic, the EGM will be run as a closed meeting with shareholders unable to attend the meeting in person. Shareholders are therefore strongly encouraged to submit their proxy votes online via www.signalshares.com or CREST where applicable. Votes must be received by 1.00 pm (GMT) / 3.00 pm local time (EET) on Monday, 21 December 2020. It will not be possible for shareholders to vote during the meeting.
The Board remains keen to encourage engagement with shareholders. To that end, the directors would like to invite questions from shareholders in advance of and during the EGM. Should shareholders wish to submit questions to the Board prior to the deadline for proxy voting they can do so, and these will be responded to on an individual basis. In addition, the Board will offer shareholders the opportunity to dial into the EGM, at which time they can also submit questions to the Board.
Shareholders wishing to access the dial-in facility or submit questions are asked to email email@example.com by close of business on Wednesday, 16 December 2020.
A copy of the Circular will shortly be available on the Company's website: www.idhcorp.com and for inspection at the National Storage Mechanism: https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism
