Important notice re COVID-19
Pearson has announced some important changes to the format of our Annual General Meeting (AGM) in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, and in order to protect the health and wellbeing of Pearson’s employees, shareholders and other stakeholders.
As a result of government restrictions on travel and the closure of our AGM venue until further notice, we have decided to convene the AGM, to be held at 12 noon on Friday, 24 April 2020, with the minimum necessary quorum of three shareholders, facilitated by Pearson. Shareholders will still be able to vote on the resolutions and raise questions in advance by e-mail, but must not attend the AGM in person.
Pearson shareholders are advised to appoint the Chair of the meeting as their proxy and to register their proxy appointment electronically by visiting the registrar’s website at www.sharevote.co.uk or, if they already have a portfolio registered with Equiniti, by logging onto www.shareview.co.uk by 12 noon on Wednesday, 22 April 2020.
If shareholders prefer to return a hard copy Form of Proxy, they should do so in accordance with the instructions on the Form, which was distributed with the Notice of Meeting.

Shareholders are invited to submit any questions for the Board via e-mail to firstname.lastname@example.org.
