NOTICE OF 2021 ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
AND UPDATE ON COMMITTEE CHANGES
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.
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:
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
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 firstname.lastname@example.org. 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

"Chair of the meeting" to ensure their appointed proxy is present
and can vote on their behalf.
