Annual General Meeting Arrangements

Fidelity Special Values PLC (“the Company”)

Annual General Meeting Arrangements

As previously announced, the Company’s Annual General Meeting (AGM) will take place on 14 December 2021 at 11:30am.

In response to the increasing prevalence of the Omicron Variant of Coronavirus (COVID-19), the Prime Minister has announced additional guidance to restrict the spread of the virus including additional advice to work from home where possible.

The legal requirement to hold an AGM remains in force and the Board believes it is important to provide shareholders with an update on the progress of the Company, and an opportunity to put questions to the Board and the Portfolio Manager.

In the interest of protecting the health of shareholders and staff supporting the Company, for the first time this year, we will live-stream the formal business and presentations of the meeting online. Shareholders viewing the AGM online will be able to submit live written questions to the Board and the Portfolio Manager.

Shareholders who wish to attend in person are still permitted to do so at Fidelity’s offices at 4 Cannon Street, London EC4M 5AB, however, under the circumstances, there will be no catering provided.

It is not the Board’s intention to exclude or discount the views of the Company’s shareholders, but at present the health of all investors, workforce and officers must be paramount.

The Board therefore urges shareholders to make use of the proxy form which was provided to all shareholders on the main register and, if they hold their shares via a nominee, to contact that company to lodge their voting instructions, which in many cases can be done online.
