Due to the public health threat and travel restrictions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2020 Annual General Meeting will now be held on June 17, 2020 at 11 a.m. Eastern Daylight Time, instead of on June 17, 2020 at 11 a.m. Cayman Islands Time as originally announced. There is no change to the items of business to be addressed at the 2020 Annual General Meeting, which are described in Global Indemnity’s proxy materials previously made available to shareholders in connection with the Annual General Meeting. Individuals will not be able to attend the 2020 Annual General Meeting in person. Shareholders as of the close of business on April 2, 2020, the record date for the 2020 Annual Meeting, who have registered to participate by June 15, 2020, will have the opportunity to ask questions and participate in the vote during the virtual meeting. However, shareholders are encouraged to vote in advance of the 2020 Annual General Meeting by returning the completed proxy card. Only the formal business of the 2020 Annual General Meeting will be conducted. Shareholders are encouraged to submit any questions for the 2020 Annual General Meeting during registration.
