* Special Resolution

 

As at the date of the AGM, the Company had 746,019,407 ordinary shares in issue. The Company holds shares in treasury and therefore the number of total voting rights as at the voting record date was 706,951,241. In accordance with the Company’s Articles of Association, every member who is present in person or by proxy has one vote for every share held.  The scrutineer of the poll was Equiniti Limited, the Company’s Share Registrar.

 

Note that a “vote withheld” is not a vote in law and have not been included in the calculation of votes “for” and “against” each resolution.  Proxy appointments which gave discretion to the Chairman have been included in the “for” total.

 

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2, copies of the resolutions which constitute special business at the AGM will shortly be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will be available for inspection at www.Hemscott.com/nsm.do.
