REVISED 2020 FULL-YEAR RESULTS DATE
Mediclinic announces a revised date for the publication of its preliminary results for the year ended 31 March 2020. Following recent guidance from the Financial Conduct Authority and Financial Reporting Council on corporate reporting timetables in light of COVID-19, results will be published on 2 June 2020, rather than 21 May 2020 as previously indicated. This allows the Company and its auditors, PricewaterhouseCoopers, sufficient time to complete the preparation and review of results, given the practical challenges of remote working.
As usual, the Group will host an audio webcast presentation and Q&A session on the morning of the release of the results, details of which will be available in advance on the 'Investor relations' section of the Company's website.
The Company anticipates its 2020 Annual General Meeting ("AGM") to continue on 22 July 2020. Further details of the AGM arrangements will be published alongside the Group's 2020 Annual Report and Financial Statements.
