UK Corporate Governance Code Disclosure

The Board has noted the proportion of votes cast against Resolutions 15 (disapplication of pre-emption rights) and 16 (disapplication of pre-emption rights in relation to an acquisition or capital investment). Following a consultation with shareholders last year, as a result of more than 20% of votes being cast against the disapplication of pre-emption rights in relation to an acquisition or capital investment resolution at the 2018 AGM, the Board confirmed that Directors are committed to undertaking shareholder consultations on significant share issues whenever it is practicable to do so. This position remains unchanged. The Board will again consult with major shareholders who voted against Resolutions 15 and 16 in order to understand their reasons for doing so. The outcome of this exercise will be considered by the Board in due course with a further update as appropriate.
