Update on Arrangements for 2020 AGM

Barclays is today updating shareholders on the arrangements for its 2020 AGM, which will be held at 1 Churchill Place, London E14 5HP at 11:00 am on 7 May 2020.

As we announced in our Notice of Meeting, in light of the coronavirus (COVID-19) situation, and in accordance with the UK Government's current guidance on social distancing and prohibition on non-essential travel and public gatherings, shareholders will unfortunately be unable to attend our AGM this year. We have strongly encouraged shareholders to submit questions to the Board in advance of the AGM and to vote by appointing the chairman of the meeting as their proxy. We are pleased with the level of engagement this has elicited and responses to the most frequently asked questions across key themes received as at 30 April 2020 have been posted on our website at home.barclays/agm. In addition, all shareholder questions are being answered individually.

Shareholders are reminded that the deadline for receipt of electronic proxy appointments and signed proxy forms is 11:00 am on Tuesday 5 May 2020. Further details on how to submit questions and how to vote are set out in our Notice of Meeting, available at home.barclays/agm.

The AGM will be convened at our registered office with the minimum required quorum present, including the Chairman and a limited number of directors and employees, in order to conduct the business of the meeting. Pre-recorded presentations by the Group Chairman and the Group Chief Executive will be available from 9:00am on the day of the AGM at home.barclays/agm. The usual format of the AGM will be condensed and will include only the formal business of the meeting. Equiniti will act as scrutineers and the results of the poll votes on the proposed resolutions will be announced, in the usual way, as soon as practicable after the conclusion of the AGM. Given the meeting format changes, and the need to keep the presence of Barclays employees and third-party contractors to a minimum, no audio webcast will be provided this year.

We very much regret that shareholders will not be able to attend the AGM and are grateful to shareholders for their understanding in these challenging times. We will continue to engage extensively with our shareholders in the coming months, including in advance of our progress update on our climate change strategy and targets which we plan to provide later this year.
