Newport RFC Shareholder General Meeting Announced

By Newport RFC | 01/05/2017

The notice has been accompanied by the general release of a comprehensive circular explaining the proposal, and a ‘Question and Answer’ sheet that provides detailed information regarding the central issues. Tony Brown, the principal benefactor, has also written an open letter to shareholders advocating the deal. The documents are available on the websites of both Newport RFC and the Dragons and are able to be downloaded. Shareholders can also receive hard copies upon request. 

In addition, and as indicated at a previous meeting with Newport supporters, a further ‘interim’ open meeting has been arranged ahead of the General Meeting so that more discussion can take place following the release of the documents. This has been arranged for Monday 24th April at 7pm in the Business Suite at Rodney Parade.

Stuart Davies, Group Chief Executive commented,

“Following the WRU announcement, we wished to engage as quickly as possible with key stakeholders for initial discussions. Within a week, we had met with both sets of supporters’ groups and sponsors, with the assurance that much more information was to follow. In turn, the documents being prepared have been further informed by the discussions at those meetings.

“They are considered documents designed to deal openly and unambiguously with all the main considerations and implications. I hope that they will assist everyone with their understanding of our position and the proposal, as well as ensuring that shareholders are able to make an informed decision in respect of the proposal.”
