The Board notes that a number of shareholders voted against resolution 3, with the result that the resolution did not attain the support of 80% of shareholders who voted.  The Board understands that this was because of concerns on over-boarding.  In accordance with provision 4 of the 2018 UK Corporate Governance Code, the Board will consult and engage with shareholders as appropriate. The Company will provide an update within six months of the AGM, in accordance with the 2018 UK Corporate Governance Code.

*In the Notice of Annual General Meeting 2019, Resolution 12 incorrectly stated the figure of 29,210,524 instead of 22,942,956 was used to represent 10% of the Company's issued common share capital. This was noted by the Chairman during the Meeting and corrected. The Resolution remains valid as it stands.
