Annual Report and Accounts 2019

STV Group plc (the "Company") confirms that the Annual Report and Accounts for the year ended 31 December 2019 ("ARA") and the Notice of the 2020 Annual General Meeting is being mailed to shareholders today.

The ARA was approved by the Board on 9 March 2020, together with the 2019 Full Year Results Preliminary Announcement, before the early impact of COVID-19 was known. The outlook narrative and 2020 implementation of the Remuneration Policy do not take account of the significantly different market conditions faced by all UK businesses following implementation of strict social distancing measures by the UK and Scottish governments. Accordingly, the ARA is accompanied by a letter to shareholders summarising the decisive actions that have been taken since the ARA was printed, to mitigate the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic on the business.

As the Company is working on the basis that social distancing arrangements will still be in place when the AGM is held, the Board reluctantly advises shareholders against attending the AGM in person this year and online proxy voting is recommended.

The Report and Accounts, Notice of AGM and Form of Proxy are available on the Company's website at

In compliance with LR 9.6.3, the following documents have been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at:

  • Annual Report and Accounts 2019
  • Notice of 2020 Annual General Meeting
  • Form of Proxy
