Notes:

1.   Any proxy appointments which gave discretion to the Chairman have been included in the "for" total.

2.   The Group's issued capital (excluding treasury shares) at the date of the meeting was 43,125,400 ordinary shares of 10p each. Each ordinary share carries the right to one vote and, therefore, at the date of the meeting there were 43,125,400 voting rights in the Group.

3.   A "vote withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes "for" and "against" a resolution.

4.   All percentages are shown to two decimal places.

This information will also shortly be available to view on the Company's website at: www.go-ahead.com. A copy of the resolutions relating to special business at the Annual General Meeting have today been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM.
