                              First Sentinel plc 
                      ("First Sentinel" or the "Company") 
 
       Notice of further guidelines on the 2020 Annual General Meeting 
 
First Sentinel would like to confirm that the Company's Annual General Meeting 
("AGM"), despite the easing of lockdown measures from 4 July as announced by HM 
Government on 23 June 2020, will still take place at 72 Charlotte Street, 
London, W1T 4QQ, United Kingdom, on Tuesday, 30 June 2020, commencing at 3.00pm 
as scheduled. 
 
Due to the ongoing impact of the COVID-19 pandemic and related public health 
guidance, First Sentinel urges shareholders to submit their Forms of Proxy, to 
ensure they can vote and be represented at the AGM, without the need to attend 
in person. Given the current restrictions on attendance, shareholders are 
encouraged to appoint the chairman of the meeting as their proxy rather than a 
named person who might not be permitted to attend the meeting, given the 
continued restrictions on people from different households meeting. The formal 
instruction on how to appoint a proxy is described in Appendix 1 of this 
notice. 
 
In light of delays caused by COVID-19, Companies House and AQUIS Stock Exchange 
have granted extensions to the Company in relation to filing its accounts. 
First Sentinel will convene a further General Meeting as soon as the respective 
report and accounts for the year ended 31 December 2019 are available, which we 
expect to hold in July 2020. Accordingly, Resolution no. 1 and Resolution no. 2 
of the Notice of the AGM of the Company will not be submitted to vote by the 
shareholders.

                                  Appendix 1 
 
                    Instructions on Appointment of Proxies 
 
Members are entitled to appoint a proxy to exercise all or any of their rights 
to attend and to speak and vote on their behalf at the AGM. A shareholder may 
appoint more than one proxy in relation to the AGM provided that each proxy is 
appointed to exercise the rights attached to a different ordinary share or 
ordinary shares held by that shareholder. A proxy need not be a shareholder of 
the Company. A form of proxy which may be used to make such appointment and 
give proxy instructions accompanies this Notice (Appendix 2). 
 
The appointment of the proxy may specify the proportion or the number of votes 
that the proxy may exercise. Where the appointment does not specify the 
proportion or number of the shareholder's votes each proxy may exercise, then 
the proxy is deemed to be authorised for the whole of the shareholder's holding 
(or in the case of a shareholder with designated accounts, the whole of the 
holding in the designated account). 
 
Your proxy must vote as you instruct and must attend the Meeting for your vote 
to be counted. If a proxy is not directed how to vote on an item of business 
the proxy may vote, or abstain from voting, as they think fit. A proxy shall 
have authority to demand or join in demanding a poll at the Meeting. Should any 
resolution, other than those specified in this Notice of Meeting, be proposed 
at the Meeting, a proxy may vote on that resolution as they think fit. If a 
proxy is instructed to abstain from voting on an item of business, they are 
directed not to vote on the shareholder's behalf on the poll and the shares 
that are the subject of the proxy appointment will not be counted in 
calculating the required majority. 
 
Completed Proxy Forms should be sent to Neville Registrars Limited at Neville 
House, Steelpark Road, Halesowen, West Midlands, B62 8HD. To be effective, 
proxy forms must be received by Neville Registrars Limited, Neville House, 
Steelpark Road, Halesowen, West Midlands, B62 8HD by 3.00pm (UK time) on 28 
June 2020. Proxy forms received after this time will be invalid. 
 
The Proxy Form must be signed by the shareholder or the shareholder's attorney. 
A Proxy Form must be completed by, or on behalf of, the shareholder making the 
appointment. A corporation may execute a Proxy Form either under its common 
seal or under the hand of a duly authorised officer(s). Where the appointment 
of a proxy is signed by the appointer's attorney, a certified copy of the power 
of attorney, or the power itself, must be received by Neville Registrars 
Limited (as appropriate) by 3.00pm, 28 June 2020. 
 
If you do not have a form of proxy and believe that you should have one, or if 
you require additional forms, please contact our Registrar, Neville Registrars 
Limited, by calling the helpline on 0121 585 1131. Lines are open Monday to 
Friday, 09:00 to 17:00 (excluding UK public holidays). 
 
In the case of joint holders, where more than one of the joint holders purports 
to appoint a proxy, only the appointment submitted by the most senior holder 
will be accepted. Seniority is determined by the order in which the names of 
the joint holders appear in the Company's register of members in respect of the 
joint holding (the first named being the most senior). 
 
Shareholders who return a Proxy Form will still be able to attend the AGM and 
vote in person if they so wish. If you attend the AGM in person and vote, then 
your proxy appointment will automatically be terminated. 
 
Appointment of proxies through CREST 
 
CREST members who wish to appoint a proxy or proxies by utilising the CREST 
electronic proxy appointment service may do so for the meeting and any 
adjournment(s) of it by using the procedures described in the CREST Manual 
(available via www.euroclear.com). CREST Personal Members or other CREST 
sponsored members, and those CREST members who have appointed a voting service 
provider(s), should refer to their CREST sponsor or voting service provider(s), 
who will be able to take the appropriate action on their behalf. 
 
For a proxy appointment or instructions made using the CREST service to be 
valid, the appropriate CREST message (a CREST Proxy Instruction) must be 
properly authenticated in accordance with Euroclear UK & Ireland Limited's (EUI 
) specifications and must contain the information required for such 
instructions, as described in the CREST Manual. The message, regardless of 
whether it constitutes the appointment of a proxy or is an amendment to the 
instruction given to a previously appointed proxy, must, in order to be valid, 
be transmitted so as to be received by Neville Registrars Limited (ID: 7RA11) 
no later than 3.00pm on 28 June 2020, or, in the event of an adjournment of the 
meeting, 48 hours before the adjourned meeting. For this purpose, the time of 
receipt will be taken to be the time (as determined by the timestamp applied to 
the message by the CREST Applications Host) from which the issuer's agent is 
able to retrieve the message by enquiry to CREST in the manner prescribed by 
CREST. After this time, any change of instructions to proxies appointed through 
CREST should be communicated to the appointee through other means. 
 
CREST members and, where applicable, their CREST sponsors or voting service 
providers should note that EUI does not make available special procedures in 
CREST for any particular message. Normal system timings and limitations will 
therefore apply in relation to the input of CREST Proxy Instructions. It is the 
responsibility of the CREST member concerned to take (or, if the CREST member 
is a CREST personal member or sponsored member, or has appointed a voting 
service provider(s), to procure that his/her CREST sponsor or voting service 
provider(s) take(s)) such action as shall be necessary to ensure that a message 
is transmitted by means of the CREST system by any particular time. In this 
connection, CREST members and, where applicable, their CREST sponsors or voting 
service providers are referred, in particular, to those sections of the CREST 
Manual concerning practical limitations of the CREST system and timings. The 
Company may treat as invalid a CREST Proxy Instruction in the circumstances set 
out in regulation 35(5)(a) of the Uncertificated Securities Regulations 2001. 
 
Appointment of proxies electronically 
 
As an alternative to completing the hard copy form of proxy, you can appoint a 
proxy electronically online at www.sharegateway.co.uk  and completing the 
authentication requirements as set out on the form of proxy. For an electronic 
proxy appointment to be valid, your appointment must be received by Neville 
Registrars Limited, Neville House, Steelpark Road, Halesowen, West Midlands, 
B62 8HD by 3.00pm (UK time) on 28 June 2020.

NOTES TO THE PROXY FORM 
 
1.     Members are entitled to appoint a proxy to exercise all or any of their 
rights to attend and to speak and vote on their behalf at the AGM. 
 
2.     A shareholder may appoint more than one proxy in relation to the AGM 
provided that each proxy is appointed to exercise the rights attached to a 
different ordinary share or ordinary shares held by that shareholder. A proxy 
need not be a shareholder of the Company. 
 
3.     A form of proxy which may be used to make such appointment and give 
proxy instructions accompanies this Notice. 
 
4.     The appointment of the proxy may specify the proportion or the number of 
votes that the proxy may exercise. Where the appointment does not specify the 
proportion or number of the shareholder's votes each proxy may exercise, then 
the proxy is deemed to be authorised for the whole of the shareholder's holding 
(or in the case of a shareholder with designated accounts, the whole of the 
holding in the designated account). 
 
5.     Your proxy must vote as you instruct and must attend the Meeting for 
your vote to be counted. 
 
6.     If a proxy is not directed how to vote on an item of business the proxy 
may vote, or abstain from voting, as they think fit. A proxy shall have 
authority to demand or join in demanding a poll at the Meeting. 
 
7.     Should any resolution, other than those specified in this Notice of 
Meeting, be proposed at the Meeting, a proxy may vote on that resolution as 
they think fit. 
 
8.     If a proxy is instructed to abstain from voting on an item of business, 
they are directed not to vote on the shareholder's behalf on the poll and the 
shares that are the subject of the proxy appointment will not be counted in 
calculating the required majority. 
 
9.     Completed Proxy Forms should be sent to Neville Registrars Limited at 
Neville House, 18 Laurel Lane, Halesowen, B63 3DA. 
 
10.   To be effective, proxy forms must be received by Neville Registrars 
Limited at Neville House, 18 Laurel Lane, Halesowen, B63 3DA by 4.00pm (UK 
time) on 28 June 2019. 
 
11.   Proxy forms received after this time will be invalid. 
 
12.   The Proxy Form must be signed by the shareholder or the shareholder's 
attorney. A Proxy Form must be completed by, or on behalf of, the shareholder 
making the appointment. A corporation may execute a Proxy Form either under its 
common seal or under the hand of a duly authorised officer(s). Where the 
appointment of a proxy is signed by the appointer's attorney, a certified copy 
of the power of attorney, or the power itself, must be received by Neville 
Registrars Limited (as appropriate) by 4.00pm, 28 June 2019. 
 
13.   In the case of joint holders, where more than one of the joint holders 
purports to appoint a proxy, only the appointment submitted by the most senior 
holder will be accepted. Seniority is determined by the order in which the 
names of the joint holders appear in the Company's register of members in 
respect of the joint holding (the first named being the most senior). 
 
14.   Shareholders who return a Proxy Form will still be able to attend the AGM 
and vote in person if they so wish. If you attend the AGM in person and vote, 
then your proxy appointment will automatically be terminated.
