Your vote is important to us and you are encouraged to vote either in advance of the AGM or on the day. All resolutions at the AGM will be put to shareholders by way of poll rather than a show of hands.

If you will not be participating in the meeting in person or electronically or otherwise wish to vote in advance, you may appoint a proxy by post, online or through CREST as further detailed in the improtant information section of this Notice. Shareholders will not currently be permitted to attend the AGM in person.

For those shareholders attending remotely, the Lumi platform will allow for live voting on all resolutions. One the Chairman has formally opened the meeting, the voting procedure will be explained. Once voting has opened, the polling icon will appear on the navigation bar. From here, the resolutions and voting
choices will be displayed.

Link Group, the company’s registrar, has launched a shareholder app: LinkVote+. It’s free to download and use and gives shareholders the ability to access their records at any time and attend virtual AGMs.

The app also allows users to submit a proxy appointment quickly and easily online rather than through the post.
