VNI is a widely held company. A list of top shareholders is published on the VNI AIM Rule 26 page. However, most shares are held via either Clearstream/Banking or Citivic Nominees (Euroclear). The end holders of these shares are often unknown.
The Company has informed shareholders that under the terms of the Articles of Association, shareholders in the Company are obliged to comply (where necessary) with the notification and disclosure requirements set out in Chapter 5 of the Disclosure and Transparency Rules Sourcebook of the FSA Handbook, as if the Company were a UK domestic company. If it comes to the attention of the Directors that a member has not within the requisite period disclosed their holding in the Company, the Company may, at the discretion of the Directors, notify the member that their shares in relation to the holding shall not be entitled to a vote, either in person or in proxy, at any general meeting of the Company.
VCIM therefore asks all shareholders to contact us and inform us of your investment in VNI. Furthermore, all shareholders of more than 3% are required to report their shareholdings to the Company for announcement on the LSE Regulatory New Service. These shareholders are also required to notify the Company on any change in shareholding of plus or minus 1% of the total shares of the Company.
