Notes:

 

·      * All percentages are rounded to three decimal places.

·      A vote "withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the "total votes for" or "total votes against" the resolution.

·      The issued share capital figure used to calculate the total votes cast as a percentage of issued share capital voted is 1,425,847,522.

·      A copy of the resolutions other than those resolutions comprising ordinary business passed at the AGM have been uploaded to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at http://www.hemscott.com/nsm.do
