Notes:

 

1.  As at the date of the General Meeting, the total number of shares with voting rights in the Company was 44,586,562.

2.  A "vote withheld" is not a vote in law and cannot be counted in the calculation of the percentage of votes for and against a resolution.

3.  Each of resolutions 6, 7 and 8, which related to related party transactions involving Ray Kelvin, Toscafund Asset Management LLP and Threadneedle Asset Management Limited, was passed with the relevant related party either not voting on the resolution or without counting any votes attaching to the shares managed by the relevant related party.

 

Resolutions 1, 3, 5, 6, 7 and 8 were passed as ordinary resolutions and resolutions 2 and 4 were passed as special resolutions.

 

The passing of the Resolutions will enable the Company to proceed with the Capital Raising to raise, in aggregate, gross proceeds of approximately £105 million. The Capital Raising remains conditional on the satisfaction of certain conditions in the Sponsor and Underwriting Agreement and Admission of the New Shares to the Official List of the Financial Conduct Authority and to trading on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange occurring at or before 8.00 a.m. on 19 June 2020 (or such later date as the Company, Liberum Capital Limited ("Liberum") and Goldman Sachs International (Goldman Sachs International together with Liberum, the "Banks") may agree, being not later than 30 June 2020).

 

A copy of the Resolutions passed at the General Meeting will be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism in accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2R and will be available for inspection at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism . 

 

Unless otherwise defined, the terms used in this announcement shall have the same meaning as set out in the Prospectus, copies of which are available on the Company's website at www.tedbakerplc.com .
