The Annual General Meeting will be held at 11:30am (UK time) on Friday 7 May 2021 at IHG Global Headquarters, Broadwater Park, North Orbital Road, Denham, Buckinghamshire, UB9 5HR.
At present, the UK Government prohibits indoor mixing of different households (except for certain exemptions). We are therefore proposing to hold the AGM with the minimum attendance required to form a quorum. Shareholders will not be permitted to attend the AGM in person but can be represented by the Chair of the meeting acting as their proxy.
We have arranged for a live webcast facility to be put in place which will enable shareholders to join the AGM electronically. Details on how shareholders can access the webcast are included in the Notice of Meeting.
The live webcast will not include a voting facility, so shareholders are strongly encouraged to vote in advance by appointing the Chair of the meeting as their proxy and to complete, sign and return their Form of Proxy to our Registrar, Equiniti, or register their vote in advance electronically.
We recognise the importance of being able to answer shareholders’ questions. Questions can be submitted in advance or during a designated time of the meeting through the webcast platform. To enable the Board to answer as many questions as possible, shareholders are encouraged to send questions in advance by email to firstname.lastname@example.org, including their Shareholder Reference Number (shown on their Form of Proxy). We request that questions be submitted by 5pm on Tuesday 4 May 2021.
Shareholders will be notified of any changes to these arrangements by stock exchange announcement as required, and will also be included on this webpage.
