Due to the UK government restrictions on public gatherings to contain the COVID-19 pandemic, and mindful of ongoing public health concerns and our responsibility to ensure the safety of our shareholders and staff, we are asking our shareholders not to attend the annual general meeting in person this year.
Shareholders can instead follow the annual general meeting online via a live webcast. We are also offering a facility for shareholders to raise questions relating to the business of the meeting in advance. Further details of both the webcast and the Q&A facility can be found below.
To ensure your vote counts, we are asking all shareholders to submit their proxy form in advance, appointing the Chairman of the meeting as their proxy or representative rather than a named person.
Update published on 7 July 2021
Despite the government’s recent announcement about its intended relaxations, De La Rue is continuing to take a precautionary approach to protect the safety of its staff and visitors to its premises.
While we are asking shareholders not to attend the AGM for the reasons given and encouraging them instead to follow the meeting online via the live webcast, should any shareholder (or their proxy) intend to be present, they are kindly asked to notify us of this by no later than 5:30 pm on Wednesday 28 July 2021 by e-mailing firstname.lastname@example.org
Any shareholders and proxies attending the venue in person will be asked to provide:
- proof of identity; and
- one of the following:
- an NHS Covid Pass using the NHS app on their mobile phone; or
- written evidence of having had two vaccinations against COVID-19, the second of which must have been received at least two weeks before the date of the AGM; or
- written evidence of a negative LFT or PCR test taken within 48 hours of the AGM.
We are taking these steps solely to protect the safety of our shareholders and staff. For that reason, we will refuse admittance to anyone who is unable to meet the criteria given above.

How to join the live webcast
This year’s Annual General Meeting is on Thursday 29 July 2021 and will commence at 10:30 am UK time.
Shareholders who want to follow the AGM via the live webcast will need a computer, tablet or mobile phone with an internet connection and web browser software installed. We expect our webcast to be compatible with all of the web browsers in common use.
We encourage shareholders to log into the webcast at least 10 minutes before the scheduled start time of 10:30am.
To join the webcast, please log into the meeting at https://brrmedia.news/DLAR_AGM2021. You will be prompted to enter your surname and your Shareholder Reference Number, sometimes referred to as the SRN – this can be found on the Form of Proxy sent to you or on your De La Rue plc share certificate(s). Without these pieces of information, we will be unable to verify that you are a shareholder and you will not be permitted to join the webcast.
If you have any difficulties accessing the webcast, please contact BRR Media on 020 3435 7010.
How to ask a question
Given that the circumstances mean that this will not be a typical shareholders’ meeting, we are offering a facility through our website for questions relating to the business of the meeting to be lodged in advance.
We intend, where we can, to respond privately to each questioner shortly after they lodge their question(s). Where relevant, the questions received (but not the name of the questioner) and answers given will be added to a rolling Q&A document available through the link below.
