Notice of General Meeting

13 March 2015

Carr's Group plc (the "Company") announces that it has today posted a circular (the "Circular") to shareholders containing a Notice of General Meeting ("GM") and associated proxy form. The sole purpose of the GM is to propose a special resolution that the name Carr's Group plc be changed to Carr's Group plc. 

The rationale for changing the Company name remains unchanged from that detailed at the Annual General Meeting of the Company in January 2014; specifically that the Company is a group which is diverse in both its geography and operations and therefore Carr's Group plc is a better descriptor of the business.

In accordance with Disclosure and Transparency Rules, the Circular is available to view on the Company's website at

Other information 

As at the date of this announcement, 13 March 2015, the Company's issued share capital now comprises 89,590,090 ordinary shares of 2.5p each with voting rights.

The above figure (89,590,090) may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine if they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the FCA's Disclosure and Transparency Rules

The Company confirms that it will announce its half year report on Monday 13 April 2015.
