The GVC board of directors announces that it is convening an Extraordinary General Meeting (“EGM”) at which shareholders will be asked to approve a new remuneration policy, the GVC Annual and Deferred Bonus Plan and the GVC 2017 Long Term Incentive Plan (together the “New Plans”). These resolutions are being proposed following a consultation with the Company’s largest shareholders on the Company’s future remuneration and incentive arrangements. It is proposed that the New Plans succeed the current incentive arrangements for the executive directors.
A circular will be dispatched today to shareholders giving notice of the EGM and setting out the new remuneration policy and summarising the New Plans. The EGM will be held at 9.30 a.m. (CET) on Thursday 14 December 2017 at the Sunborn Hotel, 35 Ocean Village, Gibraltar. The circular is available on the Company’s website, www.gvc-plc.com.
