We are pleased to have received majority shareholder support for all the resolutions proposed at the AGM with the exception of Resolution 3 - the approval of the Remuneration Report - which received a 50.4% vote against.  

 

We have engaged with a large number of our major shareholders over the course of the year and in recent weeks, and would like to thank them for giving us the opportunity to speak to them ahead of our AGM. We are disappointed that many shareholders who voted in favour of our remuneration policy in 2017 have not supported the advisory vote on the Remuneration Report at this year's AGM.  

 

Amanda Brown, chair of the remuneration committee said: "We acknowledge and respect the concerns of our shareholders and have already committed to undertake a thorough review of our reward strategy this year with the objective of putting a new policy to shareholders at the 2020 AGM. The remuneration committee will continue to consult closely with shareholders throughout this process, and reflect very carefully on any issues that they raise."
