In accordance with the Company's Articles of Association, on a poll every member present in person or by proxy has one vote for every share held.

2.

A "Vote withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the percentage of shares voted "For" or "Against" any resolution nor in the calculation of the proportion of "issued share capital instructed" for any resolution.

3.

The issued share capital of the Company as at 30 June 2021 was 390,475,317 ordinary shares of 5 pence each. The total voting rights of the Company on the day on which shareholders had to be on the register in order to be eligible to vote at the AGM was 390,475,317.  Each share carries one vote.  No shares are held in treasury. 

5.

Votes "For" and "Against" any resolution are expressed as a percentage of votes validly cast for that resolution. 

6.

The full text of the resolutions passed at the AGM can be found in the Notice of General Meeting which is available on the Company's website at www.lookersplc.com.
