Annual General Meeting

Arrangements for the 2022 AGM

At the time of publication of this Notice, the UK Government’s COVID-19 restrictions do not prohibit a physical AGM taking place in England and so we are pleased to confirm that shareholders are able to attend the Meeting in-person should they wish to do so. Alternatively, shareholders are able to view the proceedings via a live webcast. Please note that the live webcast is a view-only service and does not allow shareholders to participate in the AGM electronically. Shareholders can submit questions related to the business of the AGM, in advance in writing or by email. Further details of how to join the webcast and submit questions in advance of the Meeting are set out below. The health and safety of our shareholders, directors and colleagues remain a priority and we will continue to monitor the situation should the UK Government’s COVID-19 guidance change. Given the constantly evolving nature of the situation, we will notify shareholders of any changes to the arrangements for the 2022 AGM as early as is possible before the date of the Meeting. Such updates will be included on our website at www.bakkavor.com and announced via a Regulatory News Service.

If you wish, you may register the appointment of a proxy for the AGM electronically, by visiting the Company’s Registrar’s website www.sharevote.co.uk, you will require the Voting ID, Task ID and Shareholder Reference Number shown on the Form of Proxy.

Dividends

The Group Board paid an interim dividend of 2.64 pence per Ordinary share on 15 October 2021 to shareholders registered on the record date at 17 September 2021 and will propose a final dividend of 3.96 pence per Ordinary share at the Company’s AGM on 25 May 2022. This will result in a total dividend for the financial year 2021 of 6.60 pence per Ordinary share.

Going forward, the Group Board expects to maintain a progressive dividend policy over the medium term and the interim dividend to comprise approximately 40% of the total annual dividend.

The Company may revise its dividend policy from time to time.
