Hotel Chocolat, a premium British chocolatier and multi-channel retailer, will hold its Annual General Meeting ("AGM") at 10:00am today. Given the ongoing pandemic, the Board encourages all shareholders to refrain from attending the formal AGM, at which there will be no management presentation.
Instead, Angus Thirlwell (CEO) and Matt Pritchard (CFO) will give a live presentation via the Investor Meet Company ("IMC") platform at 3:00pm today (the "IMC Presentation"). Anyone who would like to attend the IMC Presentation should register via http://www.investormeetcompany.com/hotel-chocolat-group-plc/register-investor
Ahead of the Group's key trading seasons, the business remains well positioned and recent trading remains in line with management expectations. The Board will provide a further update to shareholders at its half year trading statement in January 2022.
