Hikma Pharmaceuticals PLC - AGM Venue



London, 2 April 2020 - Hikma Pharmaceuticals PLC (LSE: HIK) (DIFX: HIK) (Hikma), following due consideration and given the recent guidance from the Investment Association, GC100 and others relating to the holding of general meetings, is to change the venue for its Annual General Meeting ('AGM').


The meeting will now be held at 22 Regent Road, Surbiton KT5 8NL.  As two shareholders reside at this address and the government has forbidden public meetings of more than two people, no additional shareholders will be admitted.

As previously announced, shareholders will still be able to listen remotely and to submit their proxy forms and any questions in advance of the meeting.  Please see 'Remote Attendance', below, for further details.
