Notice of Meeting
2012 was a year of milestones for BP. From addressing uncertainty in the US and Russia to driving forward our strategy and performance, we have made substantial progress.
Our actions in 2012, plans for the future and other important matters will be discussed at BP’s 104th Annual General Meeting. I invite you to join us at ExCeL London on Thursday, 11 April 2013. The meeting will start at 11.30 a.m.
Your votes matter. If you cannot attend, I ask you to vote your shares in advance or appoint a proxy. The Board recommends that you support each of the Resolutions.
If you cannot attend the meeting you can join a growing number of shareholders who are watching the webcast. You can find further information about the meeting and the company’s performance at bp.com. The links included in this Notice will direct you to relevant documents.
BP has a new Registrar, Capita. We are working with them to continue to enhance the services we provide to you. I hope that those of you who come to the meeting will take the opportunity to meet them.
Most of our shareholders now access investor material on the web rather than in paper form. You can help to reduce cost and environmental impact by providing us with your email address, so we are then able to send you email notifications rather than paper cards. You can also vote online, using the code printed on your proxy card.
To make things even simpler, register mybpshares.com. There, you can view your shareholding, set up electronic payments of your dividend and vote your shares, all in one place.
In the meantime, on behalf of the Board, I look forward to welcoming you to BP’s Annual General Meeting 2013.
