Diageo has announced a revised date for the publication of its preliminary results for the year ended 30 June 2020.
The results will now be published on 4 August 2020, five days later than the previously planned date of 30 July 2020, the drinks giant said.
In a statement the company said: 'This follows recent guidance from the Financial Conduct Authority on corporate reporting timetables in light of COVID-19, and will allow Diageo and its auditors, PwC, sufficient time to complete the process of preparing and reviewing the results, given the practical challenges of remote working.'
Diageo said that it will hold a conference call for investors and analysts on the morning of 4 August 2020, details of which will be circulated ahead of the event.
'This will also result in a revised date for the publication of Diageo’s Annual Report 2020, which will now be on 7 August 2020, two days later than originally planned,' it added.
