ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING

Important update in relation to the Edinburgh Worldwide Investment Trust plc's Annual General Meeting

Further to the Company's publication of its Annual Report and Financial Statements, and the Notice of Annual General Meeting therein, the Board has been considering the arrangements for the upcoming Annual General Meeting of the Company (the 'AGM'). As a consequence of the ongoing concerns regarding the spread of Covid-19 and potential for ongoing restrictions on travel and public gatherings, the Board, taking into account the health, wellbeing and safety of shareholders, as well as the venue security requirements, has resolved that, in accordance with the Articles of Association (the 'Articles'), the Company's AGM will continue to be held at 12 noon on 2 February 2022, but this will be without access for shareholders. It should be noted that, in the light of these current circumstances, it is not anticipated that the Directors or representatives of Baillie Gifford (the 'Managers') will be present in person either, other than persons capable of forming the minimum quorum under the Company's Articles. The sole business of this meeting will be to propose the resolutions set out in the Notice of Annual General Meeting which can be found on pages 68 and 69 of the Annual Report and Financial Statements for the year ended 31 October 2021.

As shareholders are unable to attend the AGM in person, in accordance with the Articles, and as noted in the Notice of Annual General Meeting, the Board encourages all shareholders, if they have not already done so, to submit proxy voting forms as soon as possible and, in any event, by no later than 12 noon on 31 January 2022, or in the case of holders of shares through the abrdn Investment Trusts Share Plan, Individual Savings Account or Investment Plan for Children to submit forms of direction, by no later than 12 noon on 26 January 2022.

If you hold your shares through a platform, fund supermarket or similar provider, please contact your provider as soon as possible to register your voting instruction so that there is sufficient lead time for your provider to process your vote before the formal deadline noted above.

The Board continues to welcome questions from shareholders. Please submit these to the Board by email to the following address trustenquiries@bailliegifford.com , or call 0800 917 2112.

A short presentation from the portfolio managers will be made available on the Company's website ( www.edinburghworldwide.co.uk ) , on or about the date of the AGM, and where the results of the AGM business will also be posted following the conclusion of the meeting.
