Grainger plc (the "Company")
AGM - FURTHER INFORMATION
As noted in the Notice of Meeting published on 10 December 2020, regrettably in light of the continuing Covid-19 pandemic and imposition of the third national lock-down in England, attendance at the Annual General Meeting ("AGM") on Wednesday 10 February 2021 will be restricted. We will arrange for the necessary quorum to be in attendance so that the meeting is able to conduct its business. Shareholders and others will not otherwise be granted access to the AGM.
All votes at the AGM will be taken by poll and shareholders are requested to cast their votes by means of completing a form of proxy. Shareholders are strongly advised to appoint the Chair of the meeting as their proxy so that their vote is counted and details on this are included in the Notice of Meeting.
Notwithstanding the format of the AGM this year, the Board considers it important that shareholders have the opportunity to engage with the Board. As such, all shareholders are invited to send any questions that they have in connection with the matters arising at the AGM. Details of how to submit a question can be found on the Company's website at https://corporate.graingerplc.co.uk/investors/investor-downloads.
When submitting your question, please include your Investor Code which can be found on your Form of Proxy or Share Certificate.
The Board will seek to respond to questions that are received by close of business on Friday 5 February 2021 on or before Wednesday 10 February 2021. Responses to any questions received between 5-10 February 2021 (inclusive) will be published as soon as practicable following the AGM.
Questions received and the Company's responses will be published on the Company's website. The Company will also publish a short presentation in advance of the AGM on the website.
For and on behalf of Grainger plc
Group General Counsel and Company Secretary
