Notice of Annual General Meeting and Annual Report

IQE plc (AIM:  IQE, "IQE" or the "Group"), the leading supplier of compound semiconductor wafer products and advanced material solutions to the global semiconductor industry, today announces the publication of IQE’s 2022 Notice of Annual General Meeting (AGM), which is now available to view on IQE’s corporate website at The AGM will be held at 9:00am on Tuesday 28 June 2022 at Peel Hunt LLP, 7th Floor, 100 Liverpool Street, London EC2M 2AT.

Applicable legislation and UK Government guidelines regarding social contact and public gatherings have been relaxed, allowing IQE to hold an in-person AGM for the first time in two years. The health and safety of our employees, shareholders and the wider community remains a primary concern. As such, this year we are also offering shareholders a choice of either joining the AGM in person or, if they choose to do so, joining a live webcast of the AGM. Those attending the live webcast will not count towards the quorum of the meeting and will need to cast their votes in advance of the meeting by submitting a proxy vote.

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 2021 Annual Report and Accounts are also now available at and will be posted to shareholders together with the 2022 Notice of Annual General Meeting.
