PRIVATE COMPANY LIMITED BY SHARES

WRITTEN RESOLUTIONS

of

GILLINGHAM FOOTBALL CLUB LTD

Circulated on 9th December 2022

The Directors of Gillingham Football Club Ltd (“the Company” or “the Club”) propose that the resolutions set out below (“the Resolutions”) are passed as special resolutions:

 

SPECIAL RESOLUTIONS

  1. That the Articles of Association of the Company be altered by deleting Article 3 and replacing it with the words: “3. [Article deleted]”.
  2. That the Articles of Association of the Company be altered by deleting Article 4.1 and replacing it with the following words:

“The Directors may unconditionally exercise all the powers of the Company to allot, grant options over, offer or otherwise deal with shares in the Company to or in favour of such persons, on such terms and conditions, at a premium or at par, and at such times as the Directors think fit. Section 561 of the Companies Act 2006 shall not apply to any allotment of shares in the Company.”

 

The Directors propose that the Resolutions are passed because they may have an opportunity to secure investment into the Club for shares. The alterations to the Articles of Association made by the Resolutions will enable the Directors to take up such opportunity should such occur, and to take up any further opportunities for cash investments into the Club which may arise in the future.

 

GFC Holdings Limited, which holds 35,257,700 ordinary shares in the Company (amounting to 75.0082% of the issued ordinary shares in the Club), has confirmed to the Directors that it intends to agree to the Resolutions.
