Annual general meeting

The 2021 Annual General Meeting (AGM) of Cochlear Limited will be held on Tuesday 19 October 2021 at 10:00am (AEDT).

In light of the continued uncertainty with current lockdowns and Government restrictions on travel and gathering, and the potential health risks to our shareholders, Cochlear will again host this year's AGM virtually. Shareholders will not be able to physically attend the 2021 AGM but will instead be able to watch and attend the meeting online.

Details about how to attend the AGM virtually are set out in the Notice of Meeting, the Online Meeting Guide and on this page.

Shareholders can access an electronic copy of the Chair and CEO & President’s presentations on both the ASX website and here shortly before the start of the AGM.

A webcast recording will be made available for shareholders to watch after the AGM.
