Indivior PLC - Important update regarding AGM

 

On 13 March 2020, the Company published the notice convening its 2020 Annual General Meeting.  Since its publication, the UK government has introduced measures to limit the impact of COVID-19, which includes social distancing measures and the prohibition of non-essential travel and public gatherings of more than two people (the 'Stay at Home measures').

 

The Board of Directors (the 'Board') of Indivior PLC have been monitoring the COVID-19 situation and have also taken account of the recent guidance issued by the Chartered Governance Institute regarding the impact of COVID-19 on AGMs. The introduction of the Stay at Home measures means that it will not be possible for shareholders to attend this year's Annual General Meeting ('AGM') in person.

 

Change of venue and arrangements

 

The AGM will no longer be held at the original venue and the meeting will now be held at the Company's registered office at 234 Bath Road, Slough, Berkshire, SL1 4EE.  The date and time of the meeting, Thursday, 7 May at 3.00pm, is unchanged.

 

As a consequence of the Stay at Home measures, the arrangements for the AGM are as follows:

 

-    attendance will be limited to essential personnel only to ensure that a quorum is present and to conduct the business of the AGM (attendance by these persons will be considered essential for work purposes);

-    other shareholders will not be able to attend the AGM in person; and

-    the format of the meeting will be restricted to the formal business of the AGM only.

 

Shareholders can submit questions to the Board in advance of the AGM by email to cosec@indivior.com.  The Board will, where appropriate, answer shareholders' questions by publishing written responses on the Company's website at www.indivior.com.

 

The Board believes these measures are necessary and appropriate in light of the COVID-19 pandemic and, in particular, to protect the health and wellbeing of our employees, shareholders and the wider communities in which we operate.

 

Reminder to vote by proxy

 

The AGM is an important event in the Company's corporate calendar and provides an opportunity for shareholders to vote on important resolutions for the conduct of the business and affairs of the Company. Accordingly, the Board strongly encourages participation of all shareholders by:

1.   Appointing the Chair of the AGM as their proxy.

2.   Submitting a form of proxy as soon as possible and in any event by no later than 3.00pm (BST) on Tuesday, 5 May 2020 to ensure that their votes are counted. If a shareholder appoints a person other than the Chair of the AGM as their proxy, that other proxy will not be able to attend the AGM.

3.   Re-submitting a new form of proxy to appoint the Chair of the AGM to replace any form already submitted which appoints a person other than the Chair of the AGM as their proxy.

A form of proxy may be submitted electronically by following the links provided at www.investorcentre.co.uk/eproxy or by returning the form to the Company's registrar, Computershare. Details of how to submit proxies are set out on page 9 of the Notice of AGM that was circulated to shareholders on 13 March 2020. Proxy instructions must be received no later than 3.00pm (BST) on Tuesday, 5 May 2020 or not less than 48 hours before the time of the holding of any adjourned AGM.  For shares held through CREST, proxy appointments may be submitted via the CREST proxy voting system.

 

The Board will continue to monitor the situation and may, if necessary, make further changes to the arrangements for the AGM.  Shareholders should therefore continue to monitor the Company's website and RNS announcements.

 

The Board would like to thank shareholders for their understanding during this challenging time.

 

Kathryn Hudson

Company Secretary
