For immediate release
J D Wetherspoon plc (the "Company")
Notice of Annual General Meeting
The Annual General Meeting ("AGM") of J D Wetherspoon plc will take place at Noon on Thursday 17 December 2020 at Wetherspoon House, Reeds Crescent, Watford, WD24 4QL.
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and the current legislation and guidance issued by the UK Government, the AGM will run as a closed meeting and shareholders will not be permitted to attend in person. This change is a matter of regret for the Board, who have valued the interaction with shareholders at all the AGMs since the Company listed on the London Stock Exchange.
However, shareholders are invited to submit in advance any questions on either (i) the formal business of the meeting or (ii) matters they would have asked at the Company's usual post-meeting Q&A. Details of how to submit questions are included in the Notice of AGM.
Shareholders are strongly advised to vote in advance.
A copy of the Notice of AGM has been submitted to the Financial Conduct Authority's Electronic Submission Service and may shortly be viewed on the National Storage Mechanism at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism and is available to view on the Company's website at https://www.jdwetherspoon.com/investors-home/general-meetings.
The Company's Annual Report for the financial year ending 26 July 2020 is also available to view on the Company's website at https://www.jdwetherspoon.com/investors-home/reports-results-presentations . Please note that the directors' remuneration policy on pages 79 to 83 of the Annual Report contains some alterations from the version of the Annual Report released on the Company's website on 16th October 2020. The board of the Company considers that these changes are minor.
