NOTES:

(a) The "For" vote includes those giving the Chairman discretion.

(b) A vote "Withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the votes "For" or "Against" the resolution.

(c) Special resolution

 

Votes "For" and "Against" are expressed as a percentage of votes received.  Voting was conducted by a poll.

 

The Board notes the level of votes against resolutions 7, 10 and 11 concerning individuals who represent one or other of our two largest shareholders.  The UK Corporate Governance Code contains best practice recommendations in relation to corporate governance yet acknowledges that, in individual cases, these will not all necessarily be appropriate for particular companies.  Accordingly, the Code specifically recognises the concept of "Comply or Explain" in relation to divergences from the Code and the Company has explained the circumstances of these appointments in detail in its 2019 Annual Report.

 

 

The number of shares in issue at 6.30pm on Sunday 19 January 2020 was 429,188,227.

 

The full text of the resolutions can be found in the Notice of Annual General Meeting, which is available for inspection at the National Storage Mechanism http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM and also on the Company's website at www.mbplc.com.
