Notes

 

1.   Votes "For" and "Against" are expressed as a percentage of votes received.

2.   A "vote withheld" is not a vote in law and is therefore not counted towards the proportion of votes "For" or "Against" a resolution.

3.   As at 6.00pm on 30 October 2020, the time by which shareholders who wanted to vote at the GM must have been entered on the Company's register of members, there were 253,615,794 ordinary shares in issue and 76.60% of the voting capital was instructed. Shareholders are entitled to one vote per share. 

 

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2R, copies of all the resolutions passed other than resolutions concerning ordinary business have been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism.
