BT's 2021 Annual General Meeting & Notice of meeting

BT announces that its 2021 Annual General Meeting (AGM) will be held at 10:30am on Thursday 15 July 2021 at Old Billingsgate, 1 Old Billingsgate Walk, London EC3R 6DX and electronically. The Notice of meeting 2021 has been published today and is available to view on BT's website at bt.com/agm

A copy of the Notice of meeting 2021 and the proxy form for the AGM have been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism

Attending the AGM

Given the ongoing Covid-19 pandemic and the broader public health considerations, and the UK Government's announcement on 14 June 2021 that it does not intend to further relax restrictions on public gatherings until 19 July 2021, shareholders are strongly encouraged to attend the AGM electronically. Details of how to attend electronically are set out in the Notice of meeting 2021.

Should shareholders still wish to attend the AGM in person, they will be able to do so provided this is possible under the prevailing UK Government restrictions at the time of the meeting. Shareholders are asked to register their intention to attend as soon as possible at bt.com/agm , when appointing a proxy and submitting any voting instructions at www.sharevote.co.uk , or by ticking the box on their proxy card when returning it. BT will ask shareholders to comply with the health and safety measures it puts in place at the venue given the pandemic.

BT is continuing to monitor the impact of Covid-19, including the latest UK Government guidance and legislation, and how this may affect the arrangements for the AGM. If circumstances change that require BT to adapt the proposed arrangements for the AGM as set out in the Notice of meeting 2021, it will advise of this via its

website at bt.com/agm   and, where appropriate, by a stock exchange announcement. 

Voting

BT encourages all shareholders to vote in advance by appointing a proxy by 10:30am on Tuesday 13 July 2021. Shareholders who wish to appoint a proxy are strongly recommended to appoint the Chair of the AGM as their proxy.

Questions

BT recognises the importance of shareholders being able to ask questions. Shareholders can submit questions relating to the business of the AGM in advance by 10:30am on Tuesday 13 July 2021 by completing the form available on BT's website at bt.com/agm or on the day of the AGM as set out in the Notice of meeting 2021.
