Notes:

 

The percentages of votes "For" and "Against" each resolution are expressed as a percentage of the total votes cast "For" and "Against" the resolution (together the "Total Votes"). A vote withheld is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of votes "For" and "Against" a resolution.

 

The "Total votes as % of total voting rights" column shows the percentage that the Total Votes on that resolution represent of the total number of voting rights attached to shares in issue at the date of the AGM. The total number of voting rights attached to shares in issue at the date of the AGM was 946,876,512

 

Copies of the resolutions have been submitted today to the National Storage Mechanism ("NSM") and will shortly be available for inspection on the NSM's website at http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM
