"Directors' confirmations

The Directors consider that the Annual Report and Accounts, taken as a whole, is fair, balanced and understandable and provides the information necessary for shareholders to assess the Group and Company's position and performance, business model and strategy.

Each of the Directors, whose names and functions are listed in the, Directors' Report confirm that, to the best of their knowledge:

-- the Company financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with United Kingdom AccountingStandards, comprising FRS 101 give a true and fair view of the assets, liabilities, financial position and profit of the Company;

-- the Group financial statements, which have been prepared in accordance with international accounting standards in conformity with the requirements of the Companies Act 2006, give a true and fair view of the assets, liabilities, financial position and profit of the Group; and

-- the Directors' Report includes a fair review of the development and performance of the business and the position of the Group and Company, together with a description of the principal risks and uncertainties that it faces."

The 2020 report and accounts and Notice of AGM are also available on the Company's website, www.synthomer.com and upon request from the Company Secretary at 45 Pall Mall, London, SW1Y 5JG.

Annual General Meeting and COVID-19

Current Government guidance, which is likely to apply at the time of this year's AGM on 29 April 2021 precludes indoor gatherings. We are therefore proposing to hold the AGM at our London head office with the minimum attendance required to form a quorum. We would always prefer to welcome shareholders in person to our AGMs. However, in the current circumstances, shareholders will not be permitted to attend the AGM but we would encourage all shareholders to vote by submitting the Form of Proxy which accompanies the Notice of Meeting. The results of the AGM will be announced as soon as practical following the meeting.

We meet with many shareholders during each year and we are always happy to answer any questions from shareholders. As shareholders consider voting ahead of the AGM and in the absence of being able to attend the AGM, we invite shareholders to submit any questions they may have by email to IR@synthomer.com. The Company's Board will endeavour to provide written answers to all questions submitted and make them available ahead of the Proxy submission deadline of 27 April 2021 by posting them on a dedicated 2021 Annual General Meeting page in the Investor Relations section of the Company website.

Our approach is based on the Government guidance published on 22 February 2021. Given the constantly evolving nature of the situation, should circumstances change before the time of the AGM, we will notify shareholders by announcement through the Regulatory News Service as early as possible before the date of the meeting and also post updates on the Company website at www.synthomer.com.
