Holding your shares through a stockbroker/lawyer/other intermediary
If you hold your Bowleven shares through an intermediary, you cannot vote in person or by proxy. To cast your vote, you must therefore instruct your intermediary to do so on your behalf by contacting them as soon as possible.
Please note that your intermediary is likely to have an earlier deadline for voting than 10th March 2017.
