As at 12.00pm on 3 September 2021, the number of issued shares in the Company was

205,151,471 ordinary shares, which was the total number of shares entitling the holders to attend and vote for or against all the resolutions at the AGM. In accordance with the Company's Articles of Association, on a poll every member present in person or by proxy has one vote for every share held.

 

There were no restrictions on shareholders to cast votes on any of the resolutions proposed at the AGM. Votes withheld are not votes in law and therefore have not been counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes for or against a resolution.

 

Pursuant to UK Listing Rule 9.6.2, copies of all resolutions, other than those concerning ordinary business, passed at the AGM will be submitted to the UK Listing Authority and will be available to view at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism.

 

Full details of the resolutions passed, together with explanatory notes, are set out in the Notice of Annual General Meeting which is available at www.xpsgroup.com.
