Our 2021 Annual General Meeting will be held at, and broadcast live from, Waterside House on Tuesday 6 July 2021 at 11am. Following the unprecedented success of the 2020 AGM, we will once again be holding a fully digital enabled meeting, meaning shareholders are advised not to travel to the venue on the day.
All the key information you need has been summarised by our General Counsel & Company Secretary in our 2021 AGM Video Guide.

Archie Norman, Chairman
Digital meetings are more democratic, accessible, and efficacious and align with our accelerated transformation as a digital business.”
Kamal Ahmed, Shareholder advocate
Good businesses know that their shareholders matter - I’ll be your voice in the room and make sure you receive comprehensive answers to your questions.”
Shareholders can vote on the resolutions and ask questions in advance of the meeting by accessing the Lumi AGM website https://web.lumiagm.com or via Shareview.
