Notes

 

  •           Based on total issued share capital of 133,667,879 ordinary shares (as at 18 April 2022).

  •           A vote withheld is not a vote in law and is not counted towards votes cast "For" or "Against" a resolution.

  •           The total voting rights of the Company on 18 April 2022 were 133,667,879.

  •           The 'For' vote includes those giving the Chairman discretion.

 

Resolutions 3 and 10

In respect of those resolutions where there was over circa 20% voted against, namely Resolution 3 (the approval of the Directors' Remuneration Report) and Resolution 10 (the re-appointment of PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as Auditors), the Board confirms that it will consult and engage with the relevant shareholders to understand their views. An update of this engagement will be published within six months, as well as a final summary in the Company's Annual Report for the 2022 Financial Year.

 

The resolution to reappoint Anne Fahy as a Non-Executive Director of the Company (Resolution 8) was withdrawn following her resignation from the Company with effect from 19 April 2022, as announced by the Company on that day.

 

National Storage Mechanism

 

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2, a copy of the resolutions passed as special business will shortly be submitted to the FCA's National Storage Mechanism and will be available to view at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism
