Result of Annual General Meeting

 

The Company announces that it held its Annual General Meeting ('AGM') at 11.00am today.

 

As a result of the COVID-19 pandemic and the "Stay at Home Measures" introduced by the UK Government, the AGM took place as a closed meeting. All valid proxy votes (whether submitted electronically or in hard copy form) were included in the poll taken at the meeting.

 

As announced on 2 April 2020, Resolution 3, which was in regard to the payment of a final dividend for the year ended 31 December 2019, was withdrawn.

 

All resolutions as set out in the notice of Annual General Meeting (the 'Resolutions'), other than Resolution 3, were duly passed. The full text of each Resolution is contained in the 2020 Notice of Annual General Meeting, which is available on the Company's website, www.serco.com.

 

The table below shows the votes received for and against the Resolutions, representing a total of 77.11 per cent of the 1,233,380,637 Ordinary Shares of 2 pence each in issue as at the time of the meeting.

*indicates a special resolution

 

1. Any proxy appointments which gave discretion to the Chairman have been included in the "For" total.

2. Percentages are rounded to two decimal places.

3. A "vote withheld" is not a vote in law and is therefore not counted towards the proportion of votes "For" or "Against" the resolution.

 

The voting figures will shortly be available on the Company's website at www.serco.com. A copy of the special business resolutions will be submitted to the UK Listing Authority and will in due course be available for inspection at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism
