Notes:

 

1.     All resolutions were passed.

 

2.     The Company notes it received 43,441,388 votes against Resolution 2. Although this only represented 23.71% of the total votes cast, the board acknowledges that it is more than 20% of the independent votes cast in respect of Resolution 2. The Board acknowledges that this was based on a potential concern about the level of independence of certain Non-executive Directors, given the share option packages they received during the year.  These options were fully disclosed in the Annual Report and Account for 2019 and were the subject of a shareholder vote on the Remuneration Report at the 2020 AGM which was unanimously carried. 

 

The Chairman noted in his Corporate Governance Statement in the 2020 Annual Report and Accounts that, although he and Bob Head have been granted options to purchase shares in the Company, the Board as a whole is satisfied that both he and Bob Head are considered by the Board to be independent in character and judgement and that there are no relationships or circumstances that would materially affect or interfere with the exercise of their independent judgement, including the options held. 

 

Following today's AGM result, the Board will reflect and review its policy on Non-executive Director remuneration and will look to discuss further with its institutional shareholders as appropriate.

 

3.     The full text of the resolutions passed at the AGM can be found in the Notice of Annual General Meeting made available on the Company's website at mirriadplc.com/investor-relations/reports-and-documents.

 

4.     Computershare acted as scrutineer of the poll on all resolutions.

 

 

John Pearson, Chairman of Mirriad, said: "We have worked hard to provide operational stability during what has been a challenging period, and I'm pleased to see this recognised by shareholders today. Our priority remains building for long-term scale while also maximising shareholder value.
