As at 12 November 2017 the Issued Share Capital of the Company was 395,725,866 ordinary shares of 37.5p.

 

Shareholders are entitled to one vote per share. Votes withheld are not a vote in law and are therefore not counted in the calculation of the percentages of the votes cast for and against a resolution. Where shareholders appointed the Chairman as their proxy with discretion as to voting, their votes were cast in favour of the resolutions and their shares have been included in the "votes for" column.

 

Resolutions 1 to 15 and 20 were passed as ordinary resolutions and resolutions 6 to 19 and 21 were passed as special resolutions.

 

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2 copies of the resolutions (other than those resolutions comprising ordinary business) passed by the Company at its AGM have been uploaded to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM
