Lumi claims the event, accessible to shareholders across the world, was the first digital AGM in the UK by a listed company. 

Using Lumi’s AGM Mobile platform from a smartphone, tablet or PC browser, Jimmy Choo shareholders could access presentation slides, ask questions and vote on resolutions, despite not being in the room. 

Peter Harf, chairman of Jimmy Choo, said: "We are very pleased with the outcome of this process, which achieved its aim of broadening shareholder access to our AGM in the most convenient way possible."

Specialist outsourcer Equiniti introduced the platform to Jimmy Choo. 

Richard Taylor, CEO of Lumi Technologies, predicts use of electronic AGMs will increase. "Many listed companies find it is no longer feasible to expect their shareholders and institutional investors to travel across the globe to attend an AGM," he said.
