In accordance with Listing Rule 9.2.2E, resolutions 8 to 11 inclusive were approved by: (a) the shareholders of the Company; and (b) the independent shareholders of the Company.

 

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 was 72,788,543.

At the 2021 AGM, the Board was again pleased that the majority of resolutions were passed with a high level of support from shareholders. The Board has considered the votes against resolutions 4, the re-election of Sir David McMurtry (22.68%) and 5, the re-election of John Deer (24.56%). In order to better understand the reasons for these votes against, the Board has considered the views of shareholders and proxy voting agencies as to voting and voting recommendations respectively (where these had been made available to the Company for the 2021 AGM, including through engagement with the General Counsel & Company Secretary or through the year via the Senior Independent Director). The Board will continue to engage with shareholders to understand their views on this and any other significant matter.
