Restatement of Barclays PLC financial statements in its 2021 Form 20-F
 
Barclays PLC ("BPLC") disclosed in its Q122 Results Announcement that it was in discussions with the US Securities and Exchange Commission (the "SEC") about whether it needed to withdraw and refile ("Restate" or "Restatement") the financial statements included in its Annual Report on Form 20-F for the financial year ended 31 December 2021 ("2021 Form 20-F") to reflect the impact of the previously announced over-issuance of structured notes and exchange traded notes by Barclays Bank PLC ("BBPLC") under its US shelf registration statement.
 
Following the conclusion of these discussions, the Board determined on 13 May 2022 that BPLC will Restate the financial statements included in the 2021 Form 20-F.
 
BPLC expects to file an amended 2021 Form 20-F by the end of May 2022 (alongside the previously announced amendment to the BBPLC 2021 Form 20-F) and, shortly thereafter, to commence the previously announced £1bn share buyback programme.
 
Investors and other users of BPLC's filings with the SEC are cautioned not to rely on the financial statements included in the 2021 Form 20-F, or KPMG LLP's audit report thereon, until the amended 2021 Form 20-F has been filed.
 
Notwithstanding the Restatement of the financial statements included in the 2021 Form 20-F, it is not intended that the financial statements in the BPLC 2021 UK Annual Report and Accounts, which were tabled at the 2022 Annual General Meeting on 4 May 2022, will be revised, and the Board does not anticipate that this will result in any change to the financial results reported in the Q122 Results Announcement published on 28 April 2022.
