Croda International PLC

24 March 2020

This is a notice of amendment (the Amendment Notice) to the notice of the meeting of Croda International Plc (the Company) dated 16 March 2020 in respect of the Company's Annual General Meeting (AGM) on 23 April 2020 (the Notice of Meeting).

In view of the COVID-19 pandemic and the policies introduced at the planned venue for the AGM as well as the UK Government's requirement to restrict travel and avoid large gatherings, the Board has decided that it is no longer practical or desirable to hold the AGM at the venue previously notified in the Notice of Meeting.

The AGM will proceed on the notified time and date of 23 April 2020 at 12 noon, but the venue will be moved to Cowick Hall, Snaith, Goole, East Yorkshire, DN14 9AA.

All other details relating to the AGM remain unchanged to those in the Notice of Meeting, including the declaration of the final dividend. The meeting will end immediately following the business of the AGM and there will be no corporate presentation, Q&A or refreshments. Please note that professional advisors have been asked not to attend. The Company is taking these precautionary measures to safeguard its shareholders' and employees' health, to comply with Government guidelines to minimise the unnecessary movement of people and to make the AGM as safe and efficient as possible. This Amendment Notice is supplemental to and shall be deemed to form part of the Notice of Meeting. In all other respects (other than venue) the Notice of Meeting continues to apply.

Although shareholders can still attend the AGM, the Board strongly encourages them not to travel to the meeting. This is in order to protect their own health and safety and the health and safety of others.

The Board hopes that all shareholders exercise their vote on the matters of business and submit a proxy as early as possible. You can submit your proxy vote electronically by accessing the shareholder portal at www.signalshares.com. A hard copy proxy form is available upon request from Link Asset Services at enquiries@linkgroup.co.uk. Proxy forms should be completed and returned to Link Asset Services, The Registry, 34 Beckenham road, Beckenham, Kent, BR3 4TU. Full details of how to complete the proxy form and return it are contained in the Notice of Meeting and the latest time for proxies to be lodged is 12 noon on Tuesday 21 April 2020.

We strongly recommend voting electronically at www.signalshares.com as your vote will automatically be counted. Given the currently escalating situation sending a hard copy proxy is no guarantee of having your vote counted.

As the current situation continues to be dynamic, the Company will continue to update shareholders with regard to the AGM via the Regulatory New Service and the website. Any investor enquiries or questions relating to the AGM can be emailed to agm@croda.com.
