Annual General Meetings

The Annual General Meeting (AGM) is normally held in July each year at which decisions are taken on the Company’s business.

Every company is required by law to hold an Annual General Meeting (AGM) of its shareholders each year - as a shareholder you are entitled to attend, speak and vote at the AGM.

The Royal Mail AGM is normally held in July every year at which the Board presents the Company’s performance and current issues to shareholders and listens and responds to shareholders questions. It also gives shareholders the opportunity to vote on various company matters (‘resolutions’). If you hold shares in your own name on a share certificate and you cannot attend the AGM, you may appoint a proxy (or multiple proxies) to exercise all or any of your rights instead of you. If you hold shares electronically through the Royal Mail Nominee Share Service (RMNSS), you may also attend the AGM or if you cannot attend, you can complete a Form of Instruction to direct the Nominee for the RMNSS to vote on your behalf. If your shares are registered in the name of another nominee, the nominee will receive the proxy form.

The results of the poll vote on the resolutions being put to the meeting will be disclosed to the London Stock Exchange shortly after the end of the AGM and will also be available through this website.

If you attend the AGM, you can put questions to the Board of Directors during the meeting and speak informally to the Board personally before the meeting. If you cannot attend the meeting you may contact the Company throughout the year by emailing cosec@royalmail.com or by writing to: Company Secretariat, Royal Mail plc, 100 Victoria Embankment, London, EC4Y 0HQ.

The requirements under s311A of the Companies Act 2006 are satisfied by the Notice of Annual General Meeting 2018.  A link to this document can be found below.
