Result of AGM
Idox plc (AIM: IDOX), a leading supplier of software and services to the public and private sectors, announces that at its Annual General Meeting (“AGM“) held earlier today, all resolutions were duly passed.
The Company also advises that a change to the wording of resolutions 8 and 10 (the “Resolutions“) was put to the AGM. Due to a typographical error, the Resolutions made reference to the annual general meeting of the Company to be held in 2016, whereas this should have stated 2017. No objections were received to the amended wording, and as such, the Resolutions were passed. The amended wording is set out in full at the end of this announcement.
