Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting for 2021 (the ‘AGM’) of Smith & Nephew plc (the ‘Company’) is to be held on Wednesday, 14 April 2021.

In light of the COVID-19 pandemic and the social distancing restrictions and measures in place, aimed at reducing the transmission of the virus, we will be conducting our 2021 AGM as a hybrid meeting, enabling shareholders to attend and participate by electronic means. The physical location of the AGM is to be at Smith+Nephew’s Expert Connect Centre, Building 5, Croxley Park, Hatters Lane, Watford, WD18 8YE. The physical meeting will merely ensure the minimum necessary quorum, with the majority of our Directors attending electronically rather than in person. Shareholders will be able to participate (voting and raising questions) electronically, in accordance with the UK Corporate Governance Code 2018 (the ‘Code’) and the Annual General Meeting Guidance published by the Financial Reporting Council (‘FRC’) in October 2020. 

Registered shareholders have been sent either a Notice of Annual General Meeting or notification of availability of the Notice of Annual General Meeting, which contains further information on how to join the meeting electronically.
