Registered office: St James Park, Stadium Way, Exeter, Devon, EX4 6PX
In accordance with Article 3.3 of the Articles of Association of the Company (“Articles”) (subject to the Articles being adopted at a general meeting of the Company to be held on Thursday 29th October 2020 at 4pm at the registered office of the Company) the Company hereby gives notice that it intends to reduce and cancel by way of capital reduction by solvency statement pursuant to section 641(1)(a) Companies Act 2006 the shares of certain shareholders of the Company who fall within the provisions of Article 3.3 (“Untraceable Shareholders”).
The Untraceable Shareholders comprise those members from whom the Company has not had contact (from the member or their successor) for a period of at least 24 months prior to the date of publication of this advertisement after having written to them at their last known address and/or those members whose shares are identified in the Company’s register of members but the register does not identify the member’s name or address in whole or in part meaning that the Company has been unable to contact any person who may have title to or be the holder of the shares in question during the period of 24 months prior to the date of publication of this advertisement, and whom the Company believes cannot (or their successors in title cannot) be traced without expenditures disproportionate to the nominal value of the member’s shareholding in the Company.
In the event that the Company has not received any communication from Untraceable Shareholders within 14 days of the date of this advertisement and identified any Untraceable Shareholders pursuant to the Articles (in which case the shares of such shareholder shall not be reduced and cancelled, but the remainder are unaffected), the Company will reduce its share capital from £39,683 (divided into 6,876 preference shares of £1 each and 32,807 ordinary shares of £1 each) to £36,706 (divided into 5,860 preference shares of £1 each and 30,846 ordinary shares of £1 each) by cancelling 1,016 fully paid preference shares of £1 each and 1,961 fully paid ordinary shares of £1 each registered in the names of the Untraceable Shareholders (and their shares being “Cancelled Shares”) and a sum representing the nominal value of the Cancelled Shares be credited to a reserve in the accounts of the Company in accordance with the Articles, and shall not be paid to the Untraceable Shareholders. The share capital reduction is subject to the passing of a special resolution at a general meeting of the Company to be held on Thursday 29th October 2020 at 4pm at the registered office of the Company and subject to adjustment to reflect the shares of Untraceable Shareholders who are satisfactorily identified prior to the general meeting (if any).
Any Untraceable Shareholder or successor in title wishing to object to the share capital reduction should notify the Company prior to 5.00pm on Friday 23 October 2020 and produce satisfactory evidence of ownership of shares.
A list of the Untraceable Shareholders, the Company’s Articles and the notice of general meeting including the proposed shareholder resolution to approve the reduction of share capital by solvency statement are available for inspection at the Company’s registered office between 9am and 5pm, Monday to Friday, up to and including the date of the general meeting on Thursday 29th October 2020 at 4pm (by prior appointment with the Company Secretary Nicky Perryman at Nicky.email@example.com in order to comply with Coronavirus procedures).
