WPP Annual General Meeting 2021
WPP’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held at 12 noon on Wednesday, 9 June 2021 at Sea Containers House, 18 Upper Ground, London SE1 9GL.
The Notice of Annual General Meeting 2021 (2021 AGM Notice) gives details on the resolutions to be put to the AGM, together with explanatory notes.
The Company has been closely monitoring public health guidance and legislation issued by the UK Government relating to the COVID-19 pandemic. We have prepared for this AGM based on the anticipated status of the UK Government’s roadmap out of lockdown at the date of the meeting, at which time some restrictions are likely to remain in place in relation to public gatherings.
We appreciate the AGM is an important event in the calendar for our shareholders and to ensure engagement in these circumstances, it is our intention to live stream the meeting using Intrado’s online meeting platform. This will allow shareholders to watch the presentations and ask questions during the meeting, as they would if they were attending in person. Therefore, while we expect attendance in person to be possible, we strongly encourage and request that shareholders follow the business of the AGM using Intrado’s online meeting platform.

The AGM will be broadcast live and all shareholders are invited to join electronically. The Intrado AGM website can be accessed at: https://edge.media-server.com/mmc/p/7pcx6ftb
