Notice of Annual General Meeting


The Company announces that its 2020 Annual General Meeting will be held at 11.00 a.m. on Tuesday, 21 July 2020 at AVEVA Group plc, 30 Cannon Street, London, EC4M 6AH. In light of the COVID-19 pandemic, many shareholders may be advised against or be prohibited from attending the Annual General Meeting in person due to governmental guidance and rules.  As of this date, the current position is that the Government has restricted indoor public gatherings of two people or more who do not live together, unless reasonably necessary for work purposes and personal distancing guidelines remain in place. If the measures do not change before the date of the Annual General Meeting the Company may have to restrict shareholder entry or attendance at the Annual General Meeting, with the exception of the minimum director shareholders/proxy holders needed to form a quorate meeting. Please refer to the Government's official website at for the latest guidance.


Whilst it is a legal requirement for the Company to hold the Annual General Meeting in order to pass essential shareholder resolutions, circumstances may require the normal proceedings to be shortened or amended. For shareholders who are not able or permitted to attend the Company will seek to provide alternative arrangements for them. Where appropriate, we will communicate with shareholders before the Annual General Meeting and provide further updates on the Company's website at, if necessary. Please ensure that you regularly check this page for updates. If you are unable to attend the Annual General Meeting, or would prefer not to, you can still ask questions or raise matters of concern for you as a shareholder, by emailing with the subject line "AGM 2020" so that it is received no later than 11.00 a.m. on 13 July 2020.  Where appropriate, the Company will provide answers to questions on its website at on 16 July 2020.


As the present situation remains uncertain in response to COVID-19, the Company strongly encourages you to exercise your right to vote and submit your proxy as early as possible. Given the potential restrictions on attendance, shareholders are strongly encouraged to appoint the chair of the Annual General Meeting as their proxy rather than a named individual, who may not be able to attend the Annual General Meeting for the reasons outlined above. For more information on appointing a proxy, please refer to the proxy form. Proxy appointments must be received by Link Asset Services, no later than 11.00 a.m. on 17 July 2020.
