Important information relating to the Annual General Meeting


The Notice of Annual General Meeting ("AGM") of Dunelm Group plc (the "Company") was circulated to shareholders on 9 October 2020. In that notice we said that we were expecting the AGM to be held as a physical meeting, but that this may be subject to change.

The AGM will still take place at 11.30am on Tuesday 17 November 2020 at Dunelm's Store Support Centre, Pontylue Way, Watermead Business Park, Syston, Leicestershire, LE7 1AD, as previously notified to shareholders. However, since that date the public health guidance due to Covid-19 has changed, with the United Kingdom national and devolved governments issuing additional restrictions and advice to the public to avoid non-essential travel to and from certain areas.  As a result, the Board has decided that the AGM will now be run as a closed meeting and shareholders will NOT be permitted to attend in person.

The Company believes these measures are necessary and appropriate in light of the current pandemic, to protect the health and wellbeing of the Company's employees, shareholders and the wider communities in which we operate. Shareholders are strongly encouraged to vote by submitting a proxy in advance of the AGM. To ensure that their vote is recorded, shareholders should only appoint the Chairman of the AGM (and not any named individual) to act as their proxy. Details of how to submit a proxy are set out in the notes below.

Shareholders can submit questions in advance of the AGM addressed to the Company Secretary at The Board will endeavour to answer all questions as soon as is practicable after the AGM and post these on its website.

How to vote by proxy

The Company strongly encourages shareholders to vote at the AGM by:

i.            Appointing the Chairman of the AGM as their proxy;

ii.           Submitting a form of proxy as soon as possible and in any event by no later than 11.30 am on 13 November 2020 to ensure that their votes are counted. If a shareholder appoints a person other than the Chairman of the AGM as their proxy, that other proxy will not be able to attend the AGM; and

iii.          If they have already submitted a form of proxy which appoints any person other than the Chairman of the AGM, replace it by submitting a new form of proxy to appoint the Chairman of the AGM as their proxy.

A form of proxy may be submitted electronically or by returning the form to the Company's registrars.   Full details of how to submit proxies are set out on pages 11 and 12 of the Notice of AGM.

For shares held through CREST, proxy appointments may be submitted via the CREST proxy voting system.
