As many of you will know, Clear Books became a plc last year and invited customers to purchase shares in the company, raising over £800,000. As a result, last week Clear Books held its first ever AGM, inviting all shareholders to come along to the Novotel hotel in Hammersmith.

The meeting was a great success, and gave shareholders present the opportunity to vote on shareholder resolutions and hear about company updates and plans for the next year. Founder Tim Fouracre was joined by fellow directors Paul Maunders, Lizzie Fouracre and Brendan McLoughlin, each of whom were unanimously voted to continue with their roles by the shareholders present.

After all the formalities had been dealt with, the panel opened up for a Q&A, offering the shareholders a chance to voice any queries they had about the company and its plans for the future. Once the meeting had come to an end, an open bar provided a great chance for shareholders and Clear Books staff to mingle and chat over some drinks and food.

We’d like to thank all shareholders who came, and look forward to seeing you again soon!
