2020 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING UPDATE
Intertek Group plc ("Intertek" or the "Company") today provides an update on its forthcoming Annual General Meeting ("AGM") in light of the Covid-19 virus and UK Government advice.
Annual General Meeting Update - Change of Venue and Proxy Forms
Intertek is closely monitoring the Covid-19 situation and will continue to do so in the lead up to the AGM.
Change of venue
The Board has been advised that, in response to the concerns arising from Covid-19 and the UK Government's measures aimed at managing the pandemic, the venue intended for the AGM will no longer be available.
The Company's AGM will still proceed at 9.00 a.m. on Thursday 21 May 2020 and the Board has taken the decision to move the location of the AGM from the Marlborough Theatre, No.11 Cavendish Square, London, W1G 0AN, to the Company's offices at 33 Cavendish Square, London W1G 0PS.
The health of our shareholders, employees and stakeholders is of paramount importance and accordingly, the Board has taken into consideration the compulsory 'Stay at Home' measures that have been published by the Government www.gov.uk/government/publications/full-guidance-on-staying-at-home-and-away-from-others. These measures provide that public gatherings of more than two people are currently not permitted. As a result, shareholders are asked not to attend the AGM in person this year.
Shareholders are therefore requested to appoint the Chairman as their proxy (either electronically or by post) as early as possible, if they have not already done so. Further information on how shareholders can submit their proxies can be found in the Notice of 2020 Annual General Meeting (the "Notice") and is available on our website. Please note the deadline for submitting proxies is 9.00 am on Tuesday 19 May 2020. Shareholders are able to submit any questions on the formal business of the AGM to email@example.com. The Board recommends voting in favour of all the resolutions contained in the Notice of AGM as, in the Board's opinion, they are in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders as a whole.
The Covid-19 situation continues to develop and shareholders should note that further changes may need to be put in place at short notice in relation to the AGM this year. Updates on the status of the AGM and any changes to the proceedings of the meeting will be published on the Company's website (www.intertek.com) and announced to the stock market.
