As at 29 November 2022, there were 785,852,475 ordinary shares in issue. Shareholders are entitled to one vote per share. Votes withheld are not votes in law and so have not been included in the calculation of the proportion of votes for and against a resolution.

The Board is pleased that the majority of resolutions have been passed with a very high level of support from shareholders. The Board has considered the votes against resolutions 3 and 4, being the re-elections of directors David Banks and Mark Chapman, respectively. In order to better understand the reasons for these votes against, the Board has engaged with the majority of those shareholders that voted against these resolutions, considered their views and received feedback from the Company's advisers. The Board will continue to regularly engage with shareholders to understand and consider their views.
