As at 6.30pm on Monday 19 July 2021, the number of issued shares in the Company was 1,000,000,000 ordinary shares. This was the total number of shares entitling the holders to attend and vote for or against all the resolutions at the AGM. In accordance with the Company's articles of association, on a poll every member present in person or by proxy has one vote for every share held.

There were no restrictions on shareholders casting votes on any of the resolutions proposed at the AGM. Votes withheld are not votes in law. Therefore, they have not been counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes for or against a resolution.

Pursuant to UK Listing Rule 9.6.2R, copies of all resolutions, other than those concerning ordinary business, passed at the AGM today have been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available to view at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism

The AGM results are also available to view on the Company's website at www.royalmailgroup.com/en/investors/annual-general-meetings/
