The Company notes that the announcement released at 12.29 pm on 4 November 2020 under reference 2674E contained an error. The narrative of Resolution 1 Should state the Company's 2020 Financial Statements not 2019; and the narrative of Resolution 2 should state the Remuneration Report for Year ended 30 June 2020 not 2019. All other details in the announcement remain correct.
