Whilst the Board is pleased that resolution 17 (to authorise the Company to purchase its own shares), received the requisite level of votes to pass as a special resolution, requiring the support of 75% of those voting, it notes the significant proportion of votes against.  Engagement has taken place with a major shareholder to understand the reasons behind their voting and we will continue to engage with them in relation to this matter.

As at the date of the AGM, the number of issued shares and total voting rights of the Company was 154,125,118 shares in issue. The Company's Articles of Association set out that every member who is present in person or by proxy shall have one vote for every share of which he is the holder on a poll. The scrutineer of the poll was Equiniti Limited.

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2, the Company has submitted a copy of the resolutions dealing with the special business put to shareholders at the AGM today to the National Storage Mechanism, which will shortly be available for inspection at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism.
