*indicates a special resolution

 

1. Any proxy appointments which gave discretion to the Chairman have been included in the "For" total.

2. Percentages are rounded to two decimal places.

3. A "vote withheld" is not a vote in law and is therefore not counted towards the proportion of votes "For" or "Against" the resolution.

 

The voting figures will be displayed shortly on the Company's website at www.serco.com. A copy of the special business resolutions will shortly be available for inspection on the National Storage Mechanism at www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM.
