Designation of EU home member state for EU securities regulation purposes
 
Following the exit of the United Kingdom from the European Union, AstraZeneca PLC (AstraZeneca) announces that it has selected Sweden as its home member state for EU securities regulation purposes pursuant to the Swedish Securities Market Act (Sw. lagen (2007.528) om värdepappersmarknaden).
 
AstraZeneca will file certain regulatory information with the Swedish Financial Supervisory Authority in accordance with applicable EU and Swedish law. These filings will be in addition to AstraZeneca's continuing disclosure obligations under applicable UK law, including the UK Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules. AstraZeneca's status as a UK PLC and the location of its headquarters in the United Kingdom remain unchanged.
 
AstraZeneca's selection of Sweden as its home member state for EU securities regulation purposes also means that certain continuing notification obligations pursuant to Swedish law will apply to dealings or interests in AstraZeneca securities in addition to the existing obligations under the UK Disclosure Guidance and Transparency Rules. These include notifications as soon as holdings of financial instruments or short positions reach, exceed or go below certain thresholds. AstraZeneca recommends its shareholders to inform themselves about the notification obligations under Swedish law and to consult with their legal advisers in case of any questions.
