Change of the Chairman of the Board and of the Nominations Committee

The Board is pleased to announce that with effect from the conclusion of the AGM held on 24 July 2019, Neil Johnson has commenced his role as Chairman of the Board and also the Chairman of the Nominations Committee. In addition, as per best practice and in accordance with Provision C.3.1 of the 2016 Corporate Governance Code, Neil has today stepped down as a member of the Audit Committee.

 

As announced on 21 March 2019, Mark Elliott retired as Chairman and from the QinetiQ Board at the conclusion of today's AGM.   

 

Notes:

1.     The percentages above are rounded to two decimal places.

2.     Votes "for" include discretionary votes.

3.     A vote withheld is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of votes "for" and "against" a resolution.

4.     The number of ordinary shares in issue at 11.00 am on 22 July 2019 was 571,757,121 of which 3,794,743 are held in treasury. Therefore the number of ordinary shares with voting rights at 11:00am on 24 July 2019 was 567,962,378.

 

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2R, a copy of the resolutions, other than those concerning ordinary business, passed by the Company at the AGM held on 24 July 2019, has been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM.
