Metro Bank plc (the "Company")



Today, the Company has published notice of its 2021 Annual General Meeting ('AGM') to Shareholders (the 'Notice') which is available to view in the Investor Relations section of the Company's website at www.metrobankonline.co.uk .

The AGM will be held at First Floor, One Southampton Row, London WC1B 5HA on Tuesday 18 May 2021 at 2.00pm (BST).

Physical Attendance at the AGM

We value the opportunity that the AGM brings to interact with our shareholders. However, in light of the ongoing developments of the COVID-19 virus and in order to comply with the Government's restrictions on non-essential travel and limiting indoor gatherings, shareholders (other than those required to meet a quorum and conduct the business of the meeting) are not permitted to attend this year's AGM in person.

We hope to welcome shareholders to the 2022 AGM in person.

Audio Access

As physical attendance at this year's AGM is not possible, we invite shareholders to dial in and listen to the AGM, which will be accessible live via listen-only audio on the day by using the following web link: https://secure.emincote.com/client/metrobank/metro002/vip_connect . An audio recording of the AGM will also be available on our website for 30 days after the meeting for those who are unable to dial in on the day.

The safety of our colleagues and shareholders is our paramount concern. Prohibiting attendance at this year's AGM is necessary and appropriate in order to comply with government guidelines. Please do not travel to the meeting as you will not be permitted to enter the building.

Shareholder Questions

We value the opportunity to engage with our shareholders. To encourage engagement, shareholders can submit questions to the Company in advance, and by no later than 2:00pm (BST) on 11 May 2021, by emailing companysecretary@metrobank.plc.uk. Where possible, questions received by verified shareholders within the time prescribed will be addressed by the Chair of the meeting after the formal AGM business has ended.


It is as important as ever that shareholders cast their votes in respect of the business of the AGM. This year, if you want your vote to count, you must vote ahead of the meeting as it will not be possible to do so in person at the AGM. Advance voting must be done by completing a proxy form, submitting proxy instructions electronically or casting your votes through the medium attributable to the way that you hold your shares. Further information on this is included in the Notice of Meeting and on your Form of Proxy. We strongly encourage you to vote as early as possible.

If appointing a proxy, shareholders are required to appoint the "Chair of the meeting" to ensure their appointed proxy is present and can vote on their behalf.

In accordance with the Listing Rules, a copy of each of the documents below have been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM :

   --      Notice of the 2021 AGM
