This was my fourth attendance at the Companies AGM. The usual disclaimers apply. I am not licensed to give financial advice and no advice is intended. All views are my own and should be treated as such. I am a shareholder of the Company. There was an RNS prior to the meeting informing that Martin Barratt NED had resigned. No trading statement was given so it is assumed current trading is in line with Market expectations. It should be noted HY ends very shortly.
The meeting started promptly at 11:00AM. A presentation was given by the BoD before the more formal Resolutions were voted on (all passed). Then followed an in-depth tour of the Business over multiple sites (6 check), which far from being ideal are at least close together in Elvington. This was conducted by Carol Fenner Sales Director and also Jon Myers Operation Director and Chris Nutall Technical Director. There were then further discussion/ Q&A over lunch. As in previous years the BoD are very welcoming with the AGM with no time frames. I was actually on site for 5 hours.
