Resolution 10:

 

Whilst the Board welcomes the strong level of support for the resolutions put to the Meeting, it notes that resolution 10 (to approve the Directors' Remuneration Report) was passed with 60.66% of votes cast. 

 

The Company engaged with shareholders and the relevant proxy advisory companies in advance of the AGM and fully understands the issues of primary concern.  However, Andrew Coppel, as the recently appointed Chairman of the Remuneration Committee, will undertake a wider engagement with shareholders as part of the Committee's review of the Company's overall remuneration policy ahead of publishing its next report.  The Board will provide an update no later than 6 months' time.

 

 

* Includes discretionary votes

 

Notes:

 

(1)  A "vote withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the total number of votes cast for or against a resolution.

 

(2)  Resolutions 1-11 were ordinary resolutions and resolutions 12-15 were special resolutions.

 

Copies of the special business resolutions passed at the Annual General Meeting will shortly be available for inspection via the Financial Services Authority's National Storage Mechanism in accordance with 9.6.2(R) of the Listing Rules

 

There were 58,255,788 ordinary shares of 2p each in issue on 3 December 2020.
