As set out in the 2018 Annual Report, and following an extensive consultation with the Company's larger shareholders, the Remuneration Committee proposed a package of measures with the aim of ensuring that the Executive Directors remuneration arrangements properly served the best interests of the Company and its shareholders.  Whilst the new Remuneration Policy and amendments to the Long Term Incentive Plan were passed with over 80 per cent of votes in favour, the Directors note that the Remuneration Report was approved but with a significant minority of votes against. In these circumstances, the Remuneration Committee will continue to engage with shareholders to ensure their views are fully understood and considered.
