Attendance of Guaranty Trust Bank Plc 2020 Annual General Meeting by ProxyAttendance of Guaranty Trust Bank Plc 2020 Annual General Meeting by Proxy

Lagos, Nigeria: March 24, 2020

Dear Shareholders,

Kindly be informed that Guaranty Trust Bank plc had published the Notice of its 30th Annual General Meeting (AGM) which is scheduled to hold on March 30, 2020.

Following the publication of the said Notice of the AGM, the Company is not unaware of the health hazards arising from the COVID-19 pandemic, which could be exacerbated by public gatherings. As a result of the said pandemic, there have been global directives to adopt social distancing measures, leading to National and State Governments placing restrictions on public gatherings, meetings, and movements. Lagos State, which is the venue of the Company’s AGM, has issued directives banning public gatherings of more than twenty-five (25) people.

In view of the legal framework and corporate actions predicated on the AGM, such as payment of dividend, the election of Audit Committee members, the filing of Annual Returns and approval of the fees of external auditors, which actions will remain in abeyance if the AGM is postponed or canceled, your Company engaged the Regulators with a view to finding a solution that would balance the compliance with the regulatory framework and minimize health hazards that could be exacerbated by such large gatherings.

We are pleased to inform you that the Corporate Affairs Commission has graciously approved that the AGM should hold with ATTENDANCE BY PROXY to minimize social contact. To this end, Shareholders are encouraged to appoint proxies to represent them at the meeting, as the Company would abide by the Lagos State Government directive of not having more than twenty-five (25) people in a gathering (or any other number as may be permitted at the date of the meeting). Thus, as a law-abiding corporate citizen, the number of people that would be allowed into the venue of the AGM will be restricted to the number the Lagos State Government permits for social/public gatherings as at the date of the Meeting.
