Carr's Group plc (LSE: CARR), the Speciality Agriculture and Engineering group, announces an update on the completion of its statutory audit, dates of its full year results for the financial year ended 3 September 2022 ("Results") and Annual General Meeting ("AGM"), and Board succession.


Further to the Group's announcement on 4 January 2023, the Group's statutory audit timetable has been extended due to the additional work required as announced on 22 November 2022.  The Group, therefore, anticipates releasing its Results on 14 February 2023.


The Group's AGM will be held in Carlisle at 12.00 p.m. GMT on Monday 27 February 2023.  Notice of the AGM will be issued to shareholders by no later than 3 February 2023.


Following publication of the Results, the Group will call a separate General Meeting to approve the Annual Report and Accounts for the financial year ended 3 September 2022 ("Annual Report and Accounts 2022").  Notice of the meeting, together with a copy of the Annual Report and Accounts 2022 will be issued to shareholders as soon as practicable after 14 February 2023.


To facilitate timely completion of the Annual Report and Accounts 2022, the following previously announced changes to Board appointments will become effective at the time the Results are released:

·    Tim Jones will join the Board and immediately take up the role of Non-Executive Chair

·    Peter Page will relinquish the role of Executive Chair and become Chief Executive Officer

·    Neil Austin will leave the Board and stand down as Chief Financial Officer

·    David White will join the Board as Chief Financial Officer
