Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2020
Due to the Covid-19 pandemic, shareholders were sadly not able to attend the 2020 AGM in person. They were invited to submit questions regarding the resolutions and vote via proxy in advance of the AGM. Answers to questions were published online to help inform shareholders’ proxy voting decisions.
The AGM itself was held in our Bristol offices with two shareholders, the Chair of the Board and Managing Director, in attendance in order that the meeting was quorate. Shareholders were invited to view the event live via a webinar and ask questions after the official proceedings. 69 shareholders participated in the AGM live webinar and eight have viewed it subsequently online.
All resolutions were passed, the lowest with 96.65% in favour. Two special resolutions were passed to update our Articles of Association. Firstly, to permit virtual attendance at General Meetings in the future, allowing shareholders to join in person or online and play an active role in the event. Secondly, to allow us to apply to become a certified B-Corps organisation. We are now in the process of applying to be certified.

Share price and dividends
The latest dividend, based on the performance of Thrive Renewables during the 2019 financial year and approved at the last AGM, was 7 pence per share. The current Directors' Valuation is £2.23 per share but you don't need to wait for a new share issue to make a further investment. Shares can be bought (or listed for sale) at any time via our Matched Bargain Service which is run by an independent stockbroker. Learn more about buying and selling shares in Thrive Renewables. As with all investments, your capital is at risk.
How your shares are making a difference
You can use our online impact calculator on the homepage to show the direct impact of your own investment.
