"We are pleased with the support received from our shareholders at the 2024 AGM," stated Thomas F. Fudge, Jr., Chair of the Board.

This demonstrates that our shareholders have acknowledged the improvements that First Majestic has made in both the disclosure of its executive compensation practices, and in the Company's approach to executive compensation. The Company remains committed in 2024 to continue engaging with our shareholders and addressing their concerns as we strive to further increase support levels for our executive compensation practices."
