Notes:

1.  Resolutions 6 to 11 concern the re-election of the independent non-executive directors of the Company. In accordance with the UK Listing Rules, the result of the votes of independent shareholders (that is, excluding controlling shareholders) is as set out above, save that the percentage of issued share capital instructed is 45.43%.

2.  As at the date of the AGM, the number of issued ordinary shares of the Company was 3,758,151,504 shares, which was the total number of shares entitling the holders to attend and vote for or against all resolutions.

3.  A "Vote withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the percentage of shares voted "For" or "Against" any resolution nor in the calculation of the proportion of "Total issued share capital instructed" for any resolution.

4.  A copy of resolutions 18 and 21 passed at the AGM will shortly be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will be available for inspection at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism
