AGM

A forum for shareholders

The 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held at Globe House, 4 Temple Place, London WC2R 2PG on Thursday 30 April 2020 at 11.30am.

PLEASE READ CAREFULLY

Arrangements for the 2020 Annual General Meeting (‘AGM’) in light of CoVid-19.

BAT is closely monitoring the CoVid-19 situation, including UK Government measures, and will continue to do so in the lead up to the AGM.

In order to ensure the health and safety of shareholders and BAT staff, shareholders should note that the AGM will focus only on those matters required by law and regulation. Aside from the formal meeting, there will not be the usual refreshments and other opportunities to meet members of the BAT Board and management team informally.

In light of the current UK Government measures on staying at home and away from others  (social distancing) to reduce the transmission of CoVid-19, and specifically the avoidance of  gatherings and non-essential use of public transport, shareholders are advised not to attend the meeting in person this year if the measures continue to be the same or even more restrictive.

As such, the Board urges all shareholders to appoint a proxy as early as possible in order to vote on the matters being considered at the meeting.

The situation is developing rapidly and shareholders should note that further changes may need to be put in place at short notice in relation to the AGM this year.

Updates on the status of the AGM and any changes to the proceedings of the meeting will be published on www.bat.com/agm and announced to the stock market.
