Notes:

*  includes discretionary votes

^ special resolution

'+  a vote withheld is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of votes counted 'For' or 'Against' a resolution

 

The Board notes the result of Resolution 8 (the re-appointment of Ken Lever).  The Board will consult with those shareholders who did not vote in favour to understand their views with respect to multiple Board commitments. The Board is confident that Mr Lever discharges effectively his role as Chairman, notwithstanding his other Board commitments.

 

These results will shortly be available on the Company's website at www.biffa.co.uk and in accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2, copies of the resolutions that do not constitute ordinary business at an annual general meeting will be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM
