The Annual General Meeting of EVRAZ plc will be held at 2 Portman Street, London W1H 6DU on Tuesday 16 June 2020 at 11.00 a.m. (London time).
In light of the ongoing COVID-19 situation and the UK Government’s Stay at Home Measures on social distancing and restrictions on non-essential travel and public gatherings (which prohibit public gatherings of more than two people), it will not be possible for Shareholders to attend the AGM in person, and Shareholders will not be permitted entry, unless both the COVID-19 situation and the UK Government measures have changed by the date of the AGM. EVRAZ regrets the need to impose this restriction on attendance as it regards the AGM as an important date in the Company’s corporate calendar and an important opportunity to engage with Shareholders, but the well-being of Shareholders and employees is vitally important to the Company.
Ensuring that Shareholders are able to vote and to raise questions on the business of the AGM remains a key priority. The Board strongly recommends that Shareholders vote on all resolutions by submitting a proxy appointment to appoint the Chair of the AGM as their proxy. If a Shareholder appoints a person other than the Chair of the AGM as their proxy, that other proxy will not be able to attend the AGM nor vote.
Any questions on the business of the AGM should be submitted in advance of the AGM to IR@EVRAZ.COM by no later than 11:00am on Friday 12 June 2020.
