The Westpac Board has withdrawn Items 2(b) and 3 from the 2019 Notice of Annual General Meeting. These Items relate to the re-election of Ewen Crouch AM as a Director and the grant of equity to the Managing Director and Chief Executive Officer (CEO) respectively.

These Items are no longer required following the Board's announcement of CEO and Board changes on Tuesday, 26 November 2019, including that Brian Hartzer will be stepping down as CEO effective Monday, 2 December 2019 and that Ewen Crouch has decided he will not be seeking re-election at the upcoming Westpac AGM. Therefore, these Items will not be put to a vote at the AGM.
