2021 AGM and COVID-19
In light of the COVID-19 related Government restrictions and measures relating to social gatherings which are presently in place and the overriding health and safety concerns, the Board of Directors has decided to hold this year's AGM as a closed meeting with only the minimum quorum of two shareholders present, in addition to the usual supporting staff, reduced to a minimum. Therefore, it will not be possible for shareholders to attend in person (other than those designated as attending for the purposes of the quorum) and if you attempt to attend in person, you will be refused entry.
The AGM will be restricted to formal business only, and resolutions will be put to a vote on a poll. All shareholders are encouraged to vote by submitting a proxy in advance of the AGM and to appoint the chairperson of the meeting as proxy to ensure shareholders vote is counted. Other named proxies will not be allowed to attend the AGM in person. Details on how shareholders can vote via a proxy are available in the Notice of the AGM and in the accompanying proxy form. Proxy votes should be returned by 3:00 p.m. (BST) on May 7, 2021, in line with the requirements set out in the Notice of the AGM.
To facilitate engagement with shareholders, shareholders can send any questions relating to the business of the AGM in advance of the meeting to the Company Secretary, International Game Technology PLC, Marble Arch House, 66 Seymour Street, Second Floor, London, W1H 5BT or IGT_AGM@IGT.com. Responses will be made via return email and/or published as soon as possible in the Investor Relations section of www.igt.com.
