Posting of Accounts, Notice of Annual General Meeting and related matters

HC Slingsby PLC (AIM: SLNG), one of the market leaders in the distribution of industrial and commercial equipment, announces that the Company's 2021 Annual General Meeting (the "AGM") will be held at 10.00 a.m. on 9 June 2021 at the Company's offices at Otley Road, Baildon, Shipley, West Yorkshire BD17 7LW.

The Company's Annual Report and Accounts for the year ended 31 December 2020, which includes the notice of the AGM, has been posted to shareholders today and will shortly be available on the Company's website at www.slingsby.com.

Impact of the COVID-19 pandemic on the AGM

The evolving COVID-19 situation and the related Government guidelines will clearly impact the ability of shareholders to attend the Company's AGM.

The Board recognises that the AGM is an important event for shareholders, however, the Company is instructing shareholders not to attend the AGM in person this year as to do so would be inconsistent with current Government guidelines relating to COVID-19 (as published as at the date of this notice of AGM), in particular the advice for people to avoid both public gatherings and all non-essential travel and social contact. Any shareholder seeking to attend the AGM in person will be refused entry. The Government guidelines can be found at www.gov.uk/coronavirus.

The Company's AGM this year will be purely functional in format to comply with the relevant legal requirements and for the purpose of approving the resolutions contained in this notice of AGM. There will be no presentations or a question and answer session.

Instead of attending this year's AGM, shareholders are being asked to exercise their votes by submitting their proxy electronically or by post. In addition, should a shareholder have a question that they would have raised at the meeting, the Company is asking that instead of attending the meeting they send it by email to agm@slingsby.com. To the extent that answers can be given to such questions, answers will be published on the Company's website following the AGM.

Shareholders are recommended to refer to the Company's website www.slingsby.com for further details and any updates relating to the Company's AGM with regard to COVID-19.
