NOTES TO THE NOTICE OF THE SEVENTY-FOURTH ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING OF THE COMPANY (THE "MEETING")

APPOINTMENT OF PROXIES

  1. Only those members registered in the register of members of the Company as at close of business on 13th December 2018 or, in the event that the Meeting is adjourned, in the register of members 48 hours before the time of any adjourned meeting shall be entitled to attend or vote at the Meeting in respect of the number of shares registered in their name at that time. Changes to entries in the register of members after close of business on 13th December 2018 or, in the event that the Meeting is adjourned, after 48 hours before the time of any adjourned meeting, shall be disregarded in determining the rights of any person to attend or vote at the Meeting.
     
  2. A member is entitled to appoint one or more persons as proxies to exercise all or any of their rights to attend, speak and vote at the Meeting. A proxy need not be a member of the Company. A member may appoint more than one proxy in relation to the Meeting provided that each proxy is appointed to exercise the rights attached to a different share or shares held by them. To appoint more than one proxy, you will need to complete a separate proxy form in relation to each appointment. Additional proxy forms may be obtained by photocopying the proxy form. Please state clearly on each proxy form the number of shares in relation to which the proxy is appointed. A failure to specify the number of shares each proxy appointment relates to or specifying a number in excess of those held by the member may result in the proxy appointment being invalid. You can only appoint a proxy using the procedures set out in these notes and the notes to the proxy form.
     
  3. The appointment of a proxy will not preclude a member from attending and voting in person at the Meeting if he or she so wishes. If you have appointed a proxy and attend the Meeting in person, your proxy will automatically be terminated.
     
  4. A form of proxy is enclosed. To be valid, it must be completed, signed and sent to the offices of the Company's registrars, Link Asset Services at PXS, 34 Beckenham Road, Beckenham, Kent, BR3 4TU, so as to arrive no later than 10.00 a.m. on 13th December 2018 (or, in the event that the Meeting is adjourned, no later than 48 hours before the time of any adjourned meeting).
     
  5. Shareholders are requested to note that they may not use any electronic addresses in this notice of Meeting or in any related documents to submit a proxy appointment.
     
  6. Any corporation which is a member can appoint one or more corporate representatives who may exercise on its behalf all of its powers as a member provided that they do not do so in relation to the same shares.
     
  7. 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).

    CHANGING PROXY INSTRUCTIONS

  8. To change your proxy instructions, simply submit a new proxy appointment using the methods set out above. Note that the cut-off time for receipt of proxy appointments (see above) also apply in relation to amended instructions; any amended proxy appointment received after the relevant cut-off time will be disregarded.

    Where you have appointed a proxy using the hard copy proxy form and would like to change the instructions using another hard-copy proxy form, please contact Esplanade Secretarial Services Limited (Company Secretary), Sheffield United Limited, Bramall Lane, Sheffield S2 4SU.

    If you submit more than one valid proxy appointment, the appointment received last before the latest time for the receipt of proxies will take precedence.

    TERMINATION OF PROXY APPOINTMENTS

  9. In order to revoke a proxy instruction, you will need to inform the Company by sending a signed hard-copy notice clearly stating your intention to revoke your proxy appointment to Link Asset Services at PXS, 34 Beckenham Road, Beckenham, Kent, BR3 4TU. In the case of a member that is a company, the revocation notice must be executed under its common seal or signed on its behalf by an officer of the company or an attorney for the company. Any power of attorney or any other authority under which the revocation notice is signed (or a duly certified copy of such power or authority) must be included with the revocation notice.

    The revocation notice must be received by Link Asset Services no later than 10.00 a.m. on 13th December 2018.
