1        Where shareholders appointed the Chairman as their proxy with discretion as to voting, their votes were cast in favour of the resolutions.

2     A vote withheld is not a vote in law and is not counted towards the votes cast 'For' or 'Against' a resolution.

3        Special Resolution (75% majority required).

 

The Board has a consistent track record of annual and detailed proactive engagement with the Company's shareholders. This regular and annual engagement informs its approach and keeps it up to date with the latest thinking in relation to Board governance. The Board is pleased that shareholders voted in support of all the resolutions at today's AGM, noting a minority of shareholders voted against one resolution, Resolution 13. The Board intends to address the questions raised through a planned consultation.

The total voting rights of the Company as at 10.00pm on 10 June 2020 (the time by which shareholders wanting to vote at the AGM were required to be entered on the register) was 1,502,130,410 ordinary shares of 0.1p each.  The Company does not hold any shares in treasury.  Votes were cast in respect of 83.14% of the issued share capital.

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2 copies of the resolutions passed at the AGM, other than resolutions  constituting ordinary business, will shortly be available for inspection at the National Storage Mechanism (https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism).  A copy of the poll results for the AGM will also shortly be available on the Informa website (www.informa.com/investors).
