Notice of Board Change and Withdrawal of AGM Resolution

 

Vodafone Group Plc (the “Company”) announces that it has received notice from Sanjiv Ahuja, Non-Executive Director of the Company, of his resignation from the Board. Accordingly, he will not seek re-election at tomorrow’s Annual General Meeting (the “AGM”). Sanjiv has decided to step down from the Board in order to devote more time to his other business interests. He said: “It has been a pleasure to serve on the board of Vodafone. I am proud of how the company leadership through its strategy to drive shareholder value continues to support society, particularly through the Covid pandemic. I wish the company every success for the future.”

 

Vodafone Group Chairman Jean-Francois van Boxmeer said:

 

“On behalf of the Board and Executive Committee, I would like to thank Sanjiv for his valuable contribution to Vodafone over the last three years.”

 

As the Company’s AGM Notice has already been issued, the Company confirms that the resolution to reappoint Mr. Ahuja as a Non-Executive Director of the Company (Resolution 11) is now withdrawn. The withdrawal of Resolution 11 does not otherwise affect the validity of the Notice of Meeting, the proxy form or any proxy votes already submitted on other proposed resolutions. The numbering of all other proposed resolutions at the AGM will remain unchanged.

 

This announcement is made in compliance with the Company’s obligations under the Listing Rules, specifically Rule 9.6.11.
