Notice of Change of AGM Venue and Updated Dividend Timetable

Further to the announcement on 23 April 2021, EKF Diagnostics Holdings plc (AIM: EKF), the AIM-listed point-of-care business, announces a change in venue of its Annual General Meeting ('AGM'), which will now take place at Harwood Capital, 6 Stratton Street, Mayfair, W1J 8LD on 19 May 2021 at 10.30am.

As previously announced, the Company is providing a facility for shareholders to join the AGM either online or telephonically and there will be an opportunity for shareholders to ask questions. In order to facilitate the process, the Directors would request that shareholders register for the meeting and submit questions in advance, before 10.30 a.m. 17 May 2021.

To register for dial-in details and to submit any questions please contact Walbrook PR via email at ekf@walbrookpr.com or call +44 (0)20 7933 8787

No other details have changed.

Shareholders are reminded that due to the UK Government restrictions on public gatherings as a consequence of the COVID-19 pandemic, it will not be possible for shareholders to attend the AGM in person. The Board, with this in mind and in accordance with the Corporate Insolvency and Governance Act 2020, has therefore decided that the AGM will be held as a 'closed' meeting with the minimum number of Directors and officers who hold shares, present, to form the necessary quorum. Regrettably, other shareholders will not be permitted to attend the meeting in person.

Copies of the Annual Report and Accounts and Notice of AGM are available on the Company's website here: https://www.ekfdiagnostics.com/documents-reports.html
