Resolution 18, a special resolution relating to the disapplication of pre-emption rights, did not achieve the necessary 75% majority and thus was not passed. Although this is a routine resolution for public companies in the UK, the directors had no present intention of exercising the proposed authority, as set out in the Notice of Annual General Meeting. The Company does not therefore anticipate any consequences arising from the resolution not being passed. The Company will discuss any concerns with those shareholders, predominantly outside the UK, who voted against this resolution.
