Results of Annual General Meeting

The Annual General Meeting of the Company was held at 12:30pm today, 23 July 2020.  The Chairman announced:

" I would like to take this opportunity to announce that, in accordance with the Board tenure policy outlined on page 25 of the Annual Report and Accounts, this will be the last time that I will be standing for re-election as a Director of the Company.  I intend to stand down as Chairman of the Company during the year and retire from the Board.  The Nomination Committee has proposed that Gillian Watson, currently Senior Independent Director, be appointed as the new Chair of the Board following my retirement.  It has been a tremendous privilege to serve as Chairman of the Company and I am confident that Gillian will be an excellent successor."
