Every company is required by law to hold an Annual General Meeting (‘AGM’) of its shareholders each year. As a shareholder you are entitled to attend, speak and vote at the AGM. If you cannot attend you may appoint a proxy (or multiple proxies) to exercise all or any of your rights instead of you.
The Marks & Spencer AGM is held in July every year at which the Board presents the Company’s performance and strategy to shareholders and listens and responds to your questions. It also gives you the opportunity to vote on various company matters, either by attending the meeting and voting in person or by appointing a proxy to exercise all or any of your rights.
If you attend the AGM, you can put questions to the Board of Directors during the meeting and speak informally to the directors and senior management personally before the meeting. If you cannot attend the meeting, we would still like to understand the themes and issues of concern to you, as shareholders. You may contact the Company throughout the year by emailing email@example.com or by writing to:
