Results of AGM

The results of voting at Ferrexpo's annual general meeting held today, 7 June 2019, are summarised below.  All Resolutions were voted by way of a poll and were carried.

 

As stated in the Company's AGM Notice and under Listing Rule 9.2.2E, a resolution to elect or re-elect an Independent Director must be passed by both a majority of the independent shareholders (i.e. shareholders of the Company who are entitled to vote on the election of Directors and who are not controlling shareholders) and a majority of all shareholders (including the majority shareholder). In order to determine this, votes cast by the independent shareholders were counted separately in respect of the re-election of Vitalii Lisovenko and are set out below.

We have engaged with a number of our shareholders in recent weeks concerning all resolutions and would like to thank them for giving us the opportunity to speak to them ahead of our AGM. We note the result of Resolution 1 (To receive the 2018 Report and Accounts) with disappointment but are pleased that the majority of our shareholders, including the Company's major shareholders, were supportive in their vote. The Board takes the views of shareholders extremely seriously, and we will continue to engage with all shareholders on this subject going forward to better understand the reasons behind the vote result. The Chairman welcomes the opportunity to discuss the outcome of the votes with any shareholder who wishes to do so.

 

As at the date of the AGM, the Company's issued share capital (excluding treasury shares) consisted of 588,624,142 Ordinary Shares carrying one vote each. Therefore, the total number of voting rights as at the date of the AGM was 588,624,142.

 

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2R, Ferrexpo plc has submitted a copy of the resolutions dealing with the special business put to shareholders at the AGM today to the National Storage Mechanism, which will shortly be available for viewing at http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/nsm
