2021 AGM COVID-19 Update
Lookers plc ("Lookers" or the "Group"), one of the leading UK motor retail and aftersales service groups, today provides an update in relation to its Annual General Meeting to be held on 30 June 2021 ("AGM").
Response to COVID-19
We were looking forward to welcoming shareholders in person to our AGM, particularly given the constraints we faced in 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic. At the time of the Notice of AGM, the UK Government guidelines suggested that it would have been possible to hold the AGM as an open meeting, with shareholders present in person, and we had planned for this accordingly.
However, Lookers notes the recent government announcement in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic given on 14 June 2021 and in order to comply with this latest announcement it is with regret that we will be amending the format of the AGM such that shareholders will not be permitted to attend the AGM in person.
Attendance at the meeting will be limited to those Lookers representatives that can safely attend for the purposes of forming a valid quorum, while observing social distancing and other COVID-19 restrictions. It is intended that the AGM will now take place at 10.00 a.m. at the registered office, Lookers House, 3 Etchells Road, West Timperley, WA14 5XS.
We strongly recommend that shareholders refrain from attending the AGM in person, as they will be refused entry.
