Votes withheld are not a vote in law and have not been counted in the calculation of the votes for and against the resolution, the total votes validly cast or the calculation of the proportion of issued share capital voted.

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2R, copies of all the resolutions passed will shortly be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will be available for inspection at http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/nsm.   A summary of the poll results in respect of each resolution is set out above.

 

The Board of Plus500 notes that there have been a number of votes (more than 20%) cast against Resolutions 6 and 7, as above.  The Board proposed these resolutions for the reasons set out in its Notice of EGM. These resolutions introduced a number of measures to transition towards UK Corporate Governance standards. However, the Board, with the support of the Remuneration Committee, takes these votes seriously, and will consider shareholder feedback to ensure it is better understood and implemented as appropriate. The Board also reiterates its commitment to achieving the highest governance standards.

 

The total number of shares in issue at 6.00pm on 18 January 2019 was 114,888,377 ordinary shares of NIS0.01 each of which the Company holds 1,196,109 ordinary shares in treasury. Therefore, the total voting rights in Plus500 are 113,692,268.
