(1) A vote withheld is not a vote under English law and is therefore not included in the calculation of votes for and against a resolution.

The Board was pleased to see all resolutions approved by shareholders. Although Resolution 2 in respect of the Directors' Remuneration Report received the support of the majority of our shareholders, the Board notes that a minority were unsupportive of this resolution. The Remuneration Committee regularly consults with our major shareholders in order to understand their views on key decisions, and we will continue this dialogue in future years.

The total number of voting rights as at 7 July 2021 was 2,240,281,539 shares of 28(4) /(7) pence.

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2, copies of the resolutions that do not constitute ordinary business at an annual general meeting have been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will be available for inspection at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism.

A copy of the voting results shown above will also be made available on the Company's website at https://www.about.sainsburys.co.uk/investors/shareholder-information/agm.
