Grafton Group plc (the "Company")


Notice of 2021 Annual General Meeting and Form of Proxy


The Notice of  Annual General Meeting and Form of Proxy for the 2021 Annual General Meeting (AGM) have been published today and may be downloaded from the Company's website at .


In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.1, copies of the above documents have been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at .


The AGM will be held at 10.30am on Wednesday 28 April 2021 at the Offices of Grafton Group plc, Heron House, Corrig Road, Sandyford Business Park, Dublin 18, D18 Y2X6.


The health and safety of our shareholders, colleagues and advisers is a primary concern for the Company and its Board, who are closely monitoring developments relating to the COVID-19 pandemic ("COVID-19") and guidance issued by the Government of Ireland in relation to COVID-19. We will take all recommendations and applicable law into account in the conduct of the AGM and therefore if the current or similar restrictions relating to COVID-19 remain in force on the date of the AGM, the Board regrettably expects that the AGM will be held as a closed meeting (i.e. not generally open to the public).


Shareholder participation and engagement remains important to us and therefore the Board is strongly encouraging all shareholders to submit a proxy form by no later than 10.30am on Monday 26 April 2021 and to appoint the Chairman of the meeting as their proxy in order to ensure that they can exercise their vote and be represented at the AGM without attending in person. Persons holding ordinary shares in the Company through the system operated by Euroclear Bank SA/NV (the "EB System") or CREST will also need to comply with any additional voting deadlines imposed by the respective service offerings. All such persons are recommended to consult with their stockbroker or other intermediary at the earliest opportunity.


The methods for submitting proxy forms are set out in further detail in the Notice of AGM (which can be accessed at ) and in the notes to the Form of Proxy.


Shareholders will be able to listen to the AGM via the Lumi platform by connecting to   and entering the Lumi Meeting ID: 120-009-076. Shareholders will then be prompted to enter their unique 'Login Code' (i.e. their 11 digit IVC) and 'PIN' (i.e. the last 4 digits of their IVC).  Your IVC can be found on your proxy form, your attendance card or your share certificate.  If you wish to raise a question at the AGM, you must dial the conference call number, which will be accessible once you have logged in to the Lumi platform.  Access to the Lumi platform for the purpose of the AGM will be available from 30 minutes before the meeting start time.


If you hold interests in the ordinary shares of the Company through either a participant account in the EB System or as CREST Depository Interests through CREST and wish to access the Lumi platform you should arrange to have yourself appointed as your own proxy, as explained in the notes 8 and 9 of the Notice of AGM or alternatively, please contact the Company by email to [email protected] .


Shareholders will still need to submit their proxy form by the relevant deadline before the AGM, as it will not be possible to vote using the Lumi platform.


Shareholders are advised to monitor the Company's website for any further updates concerning the AGM.
