NOTES:
1. 'Total Votes For' include votes recorded as at the discretion of the appointed proxy.
2. The 'vote withheld' option was provided to enable shareholders to refrain from voting on any particular resolution. A vote withheld is not a vote in law and has not been counted in the calculation of the proportion of the vote 'For' and 'Against' a resolution.
3. At the date of the AGM the issued share capital of the Company was 243,087,874 ordinary shares.
4. The full text of the resolutions is detailed in the Notice of Meeting to be found on the Company website www.osb.co.uk

Copies of the special business resolutions passed at the AGM have been submitted to the UK Listing Authority, and will shortly be available for inspection at the UK Listing Authority's National Storage Mechanism which is located at http://www.hemscott.com/nsm.do 

The Board of Directors notes that resolution 2 relating to the approval of the 2016 Directors' Remuneration Report, received a vote of 89.65%  in favour. The Remuneration Committee regularly consults with shareholders and will continue to do so in order to understand the reasons behind today's vote result and on any changes to be made to our remuneration policy for 2018.

Board Changes

Mike Fairey will retire at the conclusion of the Annual General Meeting later today, 10 May 2017.  Rodney Duke, who is the senior independent Director, will assume the role of Chairman on an interim basis, until a successor is appointed. For the purposes of section 430 (2B) of the Companies Act 2006, Mike Fairey will receive his pro-rata entitlement to Non-Executive Director fees for the month of May 2017. No payment for loss of office will be made to him.

Mike commented that: "I have thoroughly enjoyed being a part of the OSB journey, leading the board through the IPO and helping the Bank grow and establish itself as a FTSE250 company. I believe the Bank is well placed for the future with a high quality board and management team to whom I wish every success and offer my very best wishes."

Andy commented that: "I would like to thank Mike for his contribution over the past three years as Chairman of the Board from IPO to a successful FTSE 250 company".
