Virtual AGMs held exclusively online without a corresponding physical meeting. In some cases, companies hold a ‘Hybrid AGM’, where they meet physically but also project the AGM online as a Virtual AGM.
Both types of meeting are becoming increasingly popular, as technology enables companies to replicate the format of the AGM online, to reach a greater number of shareholders.
Companies must check to see that their Articles of Association permit them to hold a Virtual AGM. Owing to the Coronavirus pandemic governments are moving to change the rules for AGMs to make them applicable to all companies.
We anticipate that the concept of virtual AGMs being universally permitted, without the need to change company’s Articles of Association, may well be approved in the next few weeks. This is subject to the government either passing necessary legislation or issuing an edict that the legislation to permit this is not required.
There are no technical limits to restrict the number of shareholders able to attend a Virtual AGM.
