AGMs and impact of Covid-19: new guidance

New guidance will help listed UK companies plan for how to validly hold their annual general meeting, and other types of general meeting, whilst Covid-19 restrictions on gatherings, travel and premises are in force.

Linklaters have prepared this guidance, along with other City law firms and The Chartered Governance Institute. We were also assisted and supported by a number of interested organisations, including the Financial Reporting Council and the Investment Association.

In addition, the Department for Business, Energy and Industrial Strategy has reviewed the guidance note.
