*** Votes cast by independent shareholders

 

The Board is pleased with the support from shareholders for the majority of the resolutions, but notes the minority votes (representing 20.44% of independent votes), against resolution 8: the re-appointment of Mr Ken Bradley. The Board takes the views of its shareholders seriously and the Company intends to engage with shareholders to better understand their concerns with a view to identifying how such concerns can be addressed. The Board looks forward to engaging with shareholders and an update on the results of this engagement and the actions to be taken will be published in due course.

In accordance with the Listing Rules a copy of each of the special business resolutions passed at the Annual General Meeting has been forwarded to the Financial Conduct Authority's National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available to view at the following location: https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism.
