Board Changes

Renishaw plc, the global provider of manufacturing technologies, analytical instruments and medical devices, announces the following Board changes.

Sir David McMurtry has informed the Board of his wish to step down as the Company's Executive Chairman. He founded the Company with John Deer over 50 years ago and has been instrumental in driving the success of the business both as Chief Executive and as Executive Chair. He will remain on the Board as a Non-Executive Director continuing to provide specific expertise on product innovation.

The Company is also pleased to announce that Sir David McMurtry's son, Richard McMurtry, will be appointed as an additional Non-Executive Director. Richard is a highly experienced director of various businesses and an investor who supports start-up companies committed to developing the future of innovation in the UK. He trained as an engineer with significant involvement in product development and robotic systems.

Sir David McMurtry will also step down from the Nomination Committee, with Sir David Grant taking on the role of Chair of this committee. In light of his new responsibilities, Sir David Grant will step down from the Audit and Remuneration Committees.

In addition to the above changes, the Company is currently undertaking a search for an additional Independent Non-Executive Director to join the Board.
