Posting of Annual Report and Notice of AGM

01 September 2020

OTAQ, the marine technology products and solutions group for the global aquaculture and offshore oil and gas industries, announces that it has today posted to shareholders the Annual Report for the year ended 31 March 2020 and notice of the  Annual General Meeting ('AGM').  The AGM will be held as a closed meeting on 25 September 2020 at 11:00.

The Board has decided to make some changes to the format of the AGM this year, as a result of the public safety measures introduced in response to the Coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Due to the restrictions imposed by the Government on public gatherings, it will not be possible for shareholders to attend the AGM in person. We are disappointed that these measures have to be adopted and appreciate our shareholders' understanding during these extraordinary circumstances.

The meeting will take place with the presence of a minimum quorum arranged by the Company and will be facilitated in line with the Government's strict social distancing advice. At the AGM, only formal business of the meeting, as set out in the Notice covering the customary AGM resolutions, will be carried out.

The 2020 Annual Report and Notice of AGM will be posted to the Company's website at
