IQE plc (AIM:  IQE, "IQE" or the "Group"), the leading global supplier of advanced semiconductor wafer products and material solutions to the semiconductor industry, today announces the publication of IQE’s 2021 Notice of Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is now available to view on IQE’s corporate website at www.iqep.com/investors/agm/. The AGM will be held at 3:00pm on Wednesday 23 June 2021 at IQE Newport, Celtic Way, Marshfield, Newport, NP10 BBE.

Continued uncertainty in respect of Covid-19 and our ongoing commitment to protect the health and wellbeing of our shareholders, officers and employees has required the Board to decide that this year’s AGM will be held electronically. The only people permitted to physically attend the Company’s office address for the AGM will be those necessary to form a quorate meeting.

Instructions on how shareholders may vote at the AGM and pose questions to the Board are contained in the Notice of AGM. The Company will conduct votes on all resolutions by way of a poll to ensure that the votes of all shareholders are counted, the results of which will be announced during the meeting.

IQE’s 2020 Annual Report and Accounts are also now available at www.iqep.com/investors/results-reports-presentations/ and will be posted to shareholders together with the 2021 Notice of Annual General Meeting.
