Investors – AGM Voting Results

 

At the Annual General Meeting of the Company held on the 21 May 2019 all the resolutions set out in the Notice for the Meeting were put to the meeting with the exception of Resolution numbered 4 which was withdrawn due to the fact that Mr GA Fawcett had died between the date of the Notice and the Meeting itself. All the resolutions put to the meeting were passed unanimously on a show of hands. Prior to the Meeting proxies were received from shareholders as follows:-

The Company does not consider the number of votes which would have been against any of the Resolutions had a poll been demanded was so significant as to warrant enquiry as to why these votes would have been against.

Notes:

1) The total number of voting rights attached to shares in issue at the date of the AGM, excluding shares held in treasury, was 72,718,490.
