Notice of AGM 2020
1 April 2020
Standard Chartered PLC
Notice of Annual General Meeting 2020
The Notice of Annual General Meeting (AGM) 2020, which was sent to shareholders of Standard Chartered PLC on 1 April 2020, has been submitted to the UK Listing Authority, and will shortly be available for inspection at the UK Listing Authority's National Storage Mechanism, which can be accessed at morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM.
A copy of the Notice of AGM 2020 is available to view at:
As announced on 31 March 2020, the directors of Standard Chartered PLC have withdrawn their recommendation to pay a final dividend for 2019 of 20 cents per ordinary share. Consequently, resolution 2 in the Notice of AGM has been withdrawn and will no longer be put to the meeting.
Annual General Meeting 2020
In light of restrictions put in place by the UK Government regarding the maximum
number of attendees at meetings, we have decided to adopt further measures, in
addition to those outlined in the Notice of AGM, to streamline our AGM. As a result of this, we delayed the dispatch of the Notice of AGM from 27 March 2020 to 1 April 2020.
The AGM will now take place at our head office, 1 Basinghall Avenue, London
EC2V 5DD, rather than at etc.venues, St.Paul's, as stated in the Notice of AGM and associated shareholder documentation. All references to etc. venues in the Notice of AGM and associated shareholder documentation should be read as references to our head office. The date and time of our AGM will remain 11:00am London time (6:00pm Hong Kong time) on Wednesday 6 May 2020.
Shareholders are asked not to attend the AGM and instead vote in advance.
Assuming government restrictions on the permitted size of gatherings remain in
place, shareholders will not be permitted entry to the AGM. All shareholders should therefore vote in advance of the meeting. We aim to host a retail shareholder call later in the year at which shareholders will be able to ask the Board questions.
We are closely monitoring the impact of the novel coronavirus (Covid-19) in the United Kingdom. If it becomes necessary or appropriate to make further changes to the arrangements for the holding of the AGM, we will ensure that shareholders are given as much notice as possible. Further information will be available at sc.com/en/investors/events-and-presentations/agm.
The 2019 Annual Report and 2019 Pillar 3 Disclosures were published on 27 February 2020 and are available to view on the Standard Chartered PLC website at sc.com/en/investors/financial-results/.
