The Board acknowledges the majority vote against resolution 7 in relation to authorising the Directors to allot Ordinary Shares on a non pre-emptive basis. 

 

In the lead up to the AGM, we engaged with shareholders on this issue and have reviewed the feedback. We appreciate the time given and comments offered which have provided us with a clearer understanding of shareholder views.

 

As part of our approach to stakeholder engagement, we believe that it is in the best interests of the Company to listen and continue to engage with shareholders, to help formulate our approach to such engagement going forward, and explain why the Board considers the resolution to be in the best interests of the Company and our shareholders.

 

NOTES:

1.

Proxy appointments which gave discretion to the Chairman of the Meeting have been included in the "For" total for the appropriate resolution.

2.

Votes "For" and "Against" any resolution are expressed as a percentage (rounded to two decimal places) of votes validly cast for that resolution.

3.

A "Vote withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the percentage of shares voted "For" or "Against" any resolution.
