Update on 2019 AGM resolution vote

In accordance with the requirement of Provision 4 of the UK Corporate Governance Code 2018 ("the Code"), Meggitt PLC ("the Company") is providing this update following a significant vote (defined as above 20%) against the resolution to re-elect Sir Nigel Rudd (Chairman) at its annual general meeting ("AGM") held on 25 April 2019.

In advance of the AGM, ISS proxy advisors had recommended that shareholders abstain from voting on this resolution due to concerns regarding perceived 'overboarding'.

Prior to and following the AGM, the Board and Company has both reviewed Sir Nigel's time commitments and engaged extensively with significant shareholders on this topic.

The Board's unanimous conclusions remain that Sir Nigel has sufficient capacity to dedicate the appropriate amount of time to Meggitt. Many of our major shareholders share the Board's view that Sir Nigel continues to provide excellent leadership of the Board and his skill set, experience and knowledge are of significant value to the Company.

The Company will continue to engage with shareholders on this topic and the Board will keep Sir Nigel's portfolio of board appointments under review.

In line with the Code, a further update will be provided in the 2019 Annual Report.
