NOTICE OF ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING 2020
Prudential plc today announces that its Notice of Meeting for the 2020 Annual General Meeting, to be held on Thursday 14 May 2020 at 11.00am, is available to view on the Group's website at www.prudentialplc.com. A copy of the Notice of Meeting and proxy card will be available for inspection at www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM in due course. Printed copies of the Notice of Meeting will today be posted to those shareholders who have requested to receive a hard copy.
At the time the Notice of Meeting went to print, the Meeting was scheduled to be held at the QEII Centre, Broad Sanctuary, Westminster, London SW1P 3EE. However, the Board notes the guidance issued by the UK Government on 23 March 2020, restricting social gatherings for a period of three weeks from that date in view of the Covid-19 pandemic, and the fact that if such guidance remains in place on the date of the Meeting, shareholders will be prohibited from attending the Meeting.
Given the UK Government's current guidance and the uncertainty around what measures will be in place at the time of the Meeting, the Board requests that shareholders do not attend but instead, encourages them to submit their proxies as early as possible to enable their vote to be counted. We are closely monitoring the evolving situation, and will confirm final arrangements in due course.
