Annual General Meeting
The AGM will be held at 11am on Thursday 5 June 2008 at Wm Morrison Supermarkets PLC Head Office, Gain Lane, Bradford, BD3 7DL. A separate notice convening the meeting is sent to shareholders, which includes an explanation of the items of special business to be considered at the meeting.
Dividend Reinvestment Plan
The Company has a Dividend Reinvestment Plan which allows shareholders to reinvest their cash dividends in the Company's shares bought in the market through a specifically arranged share dealing service. Full details of the plan and its charges, together with mandate forms, are available from the Registrars.
This Annual review contains summarised financial information which does not contain sufficient information to allow as full an understanding of the results of the Group, its state of affairs or of the policies and arrangements concerning Directors' remuneration as is provided in the Annual report.
Online reports and accounts
Our Annual and Interim Group accounts are available to download from the website along with Corporate Social Responsibility reports and other financial announcements. The information in the Annual report and financial statements, Annual review and summary financial statement and the Interim reports are exactly the same as in the printed version.
Shareholders are encouraged to visit our website, www.morrisons.co.uk, which contains sections for consumer, corporate and investors.
The effect of our business on the environment is something that Morrisons takes very seriously. In the production of the 2008 Annual reports and accounts, we have contributed to the reduction in environmental damage in the following ways:
Morrison shareholders receive a printed copy of the Annual review and summary financial statement. The full Annual report is available for viewing or downloading from the corporate website www.morrisons.co.uk. Shareholders are encouraged to view the report on the website which is exactly the same as the printed version, but using the internet has clear advantages such as lowering costs and reducing the environmental impact.
b) Carbon offset
The Annual report and financial statements, the Annual review and summary financial statement and the Corporate Social Responsibility report have been assessed with the assistance of the Carbon Trust for the amount of carbon emissions that will be generated in their preparation, printing and delivery. To offset these carbon emissions a donation has been made to PURE, The Clean Planet Trust, the first UK registered charity dedicated to combating climate change by offsetting. More information about PURE can be found on their website www.puretrust.org.uk
c) Recycled paper
This document has been printed by The Midas Press on recycled paper that is manufactured in mills with ISO 14001 accreditation from 100% recycled fibre. It is totally chlorine free and is a NAPM certified recycled product.
Further information about other ways in which the Group is helping with environmental change can be found in the Corporate Social Responsibility report 2008 which can be viewed on the Morrisons website.
'Recyclopedia' is our own unique, award-winning labelling scheme for own-brand packaging, which helps to increase awareness of which packaging elements can be recycled and where. The 'Recyclopedia' guide has three easy to recognise symbols:
>> a big grin, for packaging which is 100% recyclable or home compostable,
>> smiling, for items which are partly recyclable or not recyclable everywhere yet,
>> not smiling yet, for packaging which is not recyclable yet but we are working on it.
Each symbol incorporates a 'speech bubble' giving information about the packaging components' recyclability and how to find out about local recycling facilities.
