As you will be aware, for the last two years, in order to adhere to Government guidelines, we were unable to hold a physical meeting. This year, we are pleased to advise that we do intend to hold a physical meeting, but would encourage shareholders, in the event of any change to Government guidelines or a change of venue, to continue to check for updates from the Company on its website abrdnsmallercompaniesincome.co.uk or via Company announcements to the London Stock Exchange.
As in previous physical meetings, shareholders will have the opportunity to hear an update from the Manager and to ask questions of the Manager and the Board and we very much look forward to seeing you. I would encourage shareholders (whether or not they intend to attend the AGM in person) to lodge their proxy votes in advance of the meeting. Shareholders are also encouraged to send any questions in advance, by email, to email@example.com.
