Notes to AGM figures:

The percentage of votes "For" and "Against" each resolution are expressed as a percentage of the total votes cast "For" and "Against" the resolution (together the "Total Votes"). 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.

The "% of total voting rights" column shows the percentage that the Total Votes on that resolution represent of the total number of voting rights attached to shares in issue at the date of the AGM. The total number of voting rights attached to shares in issue at the date of the AGM was 227,882,326.

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2, copies of all the resolutions passed by the Company at its Annual General Meeting have been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will be available for inspection at http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM
