Notes:

 

1.   The above is a summary of the resolutions passed; full text of the resolutions can be found in the Notice of the meeting which can be found on the company's website www.brewin.co.uk

 

2.   Resolutions 1 to 14 and 18 were passed as Ordinary Resolutions and Resolutions 15 to 17 were passed as Special Resolutions.

 

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

 

4.   It should be noted that the appointment of a proxy is not an unequivocally precise indicator of the way that the shareholder would have voted on a poll, it merely reflects their intention at the time the instruction was given.  Voting instructions can be changed at any time prior to a poll being demanded and a shareholder, having lodged a proxy, is still entitled to attend the Meeting and having heard/participated in the debate vote their shares themselves as they see it.

 

5.   The "vote withheld" totals indicate those members who have abstained on a particular resolution. "Vote withheld" is not a vote in law and has not been counted in the calculation of the proportion of votes "for" and "against" a resolution.

 

6.   In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2 copies of the special resolutions passed by the Company at its Annual General Meeting have been submitted to FCA's National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at www.Hemscott.com/nsm.do
