How do I vote?
Do you hold shares in Rangers International Football Club plc in your own name?
If you hold your shares in Rangers International Football Club plc in your own name there are three ways in which you can vote:
Vote in person at the AGM (see below);
Vote by Proxy Form (see below); or
Vote using CREST - if you are a CREST member, you may choose to use the CREST electronic proxy appointment service. Proxies submitted via CREST must be received by the Company’s agent (ID RA10) by no later than 10.30am on Tuesday 17 December 2013.
Do you hold shares in Rangers International Football Club plc by way of a nominee arrangement?
If your shares are held by a nominee (i.e. the shares are not registered in your name) you should speak to the nominee directly about how to make your vote count.
What if I plan to attend the AGM and vote in person?
If you want to vote in person at the AGM there is no need to complete the Proxy Form. Attached to the Proxy Form is an Attendance Card for use by those attending the AGM. You should sign the Attendance Card and take it with you to the meeting.
What if I want to vote by Proxy Form?
To appoint another person to vote on your behalf at the AGM you can complete and sign the Proxy Form that you received with the Notice of Annual General Meeting. You should complete the proxy form by indicating with an “X” next to each of the resolutions whether you are for it, against it or wish to withhold your vote. Remember your proxy must be in attendance at the meeting in order for your vote to count.
If you vote by Proxy Form, you should return your form to Capita Registrars, The Proxy Department, The Registry, 34 Beckenham Road, Kent BR3 4TU so that it is received by no later than 10.30am on Tuesday 17 December 2013.
How will my shares be voted if I appoint a proxy?
The person you name on your Proxy Form must vote in accordance with your instructions. If you do not give them any instructions, a proxy may vote or not vote as he or she sees fit on any business of the AGM. Please see the explanatory notes in the top left-hand corner of the Proxy Form.
Can I appoint anyone to be a proxy?
Yes. You can appoint your own choice of proxy or if you do not nominate a specific proxy the Chairman of the AGM will be appointed as your proxy by default. Your proxy does not need to be a Rangers International Football Club plc shareholder but does need to be someone in attendance at the meeting.
Can I change my mind once I have appointed a proxy?
Yes. If you change your mind, you should send a written statement to that effect to Capita Registrars, The Proxy Department, The Registry, 34 Beckenham Road, Kent BR3 4TU. The statement must arrive with Capita Registrars by 7.30am on Tuesday 17 December 2013, or you should bring it along to the AGM.
