The Remuneration Committee gave careful consideration to the executive remuneration structure including taking external advice which included a third-party benchmarking exercise to ensure that the remuneration structure is in line with the wider market. The Board believe it is in the best interests of shareholders to ensure that the executive team are appropriately incentivised over the longer term and are pleased that a significant majority of shareholders approved of this proposal. However, the views of all shareholders are important to us and therefore the Board intends to consult with shareholders and their advisers to better understand any specific concerns they may have and a further update will be provided in due course.
