Annual General Meetings

Important information on the revised arrangements for the Rio Tinto PLC AGM

11am on Wednesday, 8 April 2020

In light of the mandatory social distancing measures aimed at reducing the transmission of the Covid-19 virus in the UK, please note:

  • Attendance in person at the AGM is no longer possible
  • Shareholders should vote in advance by proxy
  • A teleconference will be arranged to maintain shareholder engagement
  • Attending the meeting in person no longer lawful

    On 23 March 2020, the UK Government announced further mandatory measures in relation to social distancing to reduce the transmission of COVID-19. These measures include requiring people to stay at home, except for very limited purposes; and stopping all gatherings of more than two people in public.

    In order to comply with these orders, the Queen Elizabeth II Conference Centre have advised that they have closed and will not host any events (including the Rio Tinto plc AGM), for at least the next three weeks.

    We fully support these measures to protect public health and safety.

    As a result, it is now not lawful for us to hold our AGM in the usual way.

    Instead, the AGM will be convened with the minimum required quorum of shareholders present in order to conduct the business of the meeting. The results of the poll votes on the proposed resolutions will be announced, in the usual way, as soon as practicable after the conclusion of the AGM.

  • Shareholder conference call

    We believe it is important to maintain engagement with our shareholders, even in these exceptional circumstances. After the conclusion of the formal AGM, we plan to hold a conference call in which shareholders can dial into to hear short speeches from our Chairman and Chief Executive. We will also hold a short question and answer session. Details of the conference call and how to dial in are as follows:

    Time:12 noon – 13.30 (BST)

    Date: Wednesday, 8 April 2020

    Dial-in details: Please see below for dial-in details 

    When dialing in you will be prompted to give your name, and confirm whether you are a shareholder and, if you have it, to provide your unique Shareholder Reference Number - it can be found on forms of proxy and on share certificates. If you would like to ask a question during the call, you will be prompted to press *1 and you will be queued for the Q&A session. While every effort will be made to answer all questions, we cannot guarantee it will be possible in the time available -  the conference call will last for no more than 90 minutes.

    Alternatively, shareholders can submit questions in advance of the meeting and answers will be provided during the meeting to a representative selection of those questions.
