bp p.l.c. alternative arrangements for the 2020 Annual General Meeting

Today bp p.l.c. announces that its 2020 Annual General Meeting (AGM) will now be held at 1 St. James's Square, London SW1Y 4PD at 11:00am on Wednesday, 27 May 2020.

This is a change to the venue set out in the 2020 Notice of AGM which bp published on 27 March 2020 as that venue is being used by the NHS as a field hospital in the fight against COVID-19.

Due to Government guidance on social distancing and prohibiting gatherings, and in order to protect our staff and our shareholders, bp's AGM will be a closed meeting. Shareholders should not attempt to attend the AGM in person.

The meeting will be live streamed on the internet, accessible via the company's website on bp.com. Those wishing to watch the meeting should register at bp.com/agm/webcast. Shareholders watching the AGM on bp.com will not be counted towards the quorum of the meeting and will not be able to participate in the meeting, including by voting or asking questions, on the day.

If you are a shareholder and wish to submit a question in relation to the business of the AGM, please send your question by completing the form at bp.com/agm/questions before Wednesday 27 May; in the form please include your name and how you hold your bp shares. We will attempt to answer as many of these questions as possible during the meeting and in any event will make available answers to frequently asked questions on bp.com.

We strongly encourage shareholders to vote by appointing the chairman of the meeting as their proxy as soon as possible and in any event no later than 6:00pm BST on Friday 22 May 2020 to ensure their votes are counted.
