The Rank Group Plc

Publication of Circular and Notice of General Meeting

 

Further to today's announcement of the successful non-pre-emptive Fundraise ("Results Announcement"), The Rank Group Plc ("Rank" or the "Company") announces that a general meeting of the Company ("General Meeting") will be held at 11.30 a.m. on 23 November 2020 at the Company's registered office at TOR, Saint-Cloud Way, Maidenhead, SL6 8BN, United Kingdom. 

Pursuant to the Fundraise, 77,746,020 new Ordinary Shares (representing approximately 19.9% of the Company's existing Ordinary Shares) have been allotted at the Placing Price conditional on Shareholder approval. The participation by Hong Leong, a substantial shareholder pursuant to the Listing Rules, in the Fundraise constitutes a related party transaction and is therefore also subject to Shareholder approval.

An explanatory circular (the "Circular"), along with an accompanying form of proxy to vote at the General Meeting, will be posted to shareholders today.

The Circular and the Notice of General Meeting have been submitted to the Financial Conduct Authority's National Storage Mechanism (the "NSM") and will be available for inspection on the NSM's website at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism

The Circular and the Notice of General Meeting will also be available to view on the Company's website at https://www.rank.com/

Please note that as a result of the constantly evolving COVID-19 situation and Her Majesty's Government's restrictions and guidance on, amongst other things, public gatherings and social distancing, the General Meeting will be held as a closed meeting and neither Shareholders nor their representatives will be able to attend in person. Given the restriction on attendance, Shareholders should utilise electronic voting or submit a proxy vote in advance of the General Meeting. Shareholders who wish to appoint a proxy, in the current circumstances, should appoint the Chair of the meeting as their proxy rather than a named person who will NOT be permitted to attend.

Shareholders must submit their votes by proxy no later than 11.30 a.m. on 21 November 2020.

Capitalised terms not otherwise defined in this announcement shall have the meaning given to them in the Circular or the Results Announcement.
