*'Vote Withheld' is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes 'For' and 'Against' a resolution.

 

In relation to resolutions 3, 4 and 6, the Board is pleased that the re-election of Nicholas Hofgren, Graeme Johnson and Stuart Cheek was supported by the majority of shareholders. However, we recognise that there were a number of votes opposing the resolutions. We will engage with shareholders over the coming months to understand the reasons for the number of votes against the resolutions.

 

In accordance with LR 9.6.2 of the UK Listing Authority, Vordere has submitted copies of the special resolutions passed at its Annual General Meeting to the National Storage Mechanism which will shortly be available for inspection at http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM.
