Votes "for" include proxy appointments which gave discretion to the Chairman of the AGM. 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.

As at 6.30 p.m. on 19 May 2020, being the time at which a person had to be registered in the Company's register of members in order to attend and vote at the AGM, the number of ordinary shares of the Company in issue was 1,022,697,394. 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.

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2, copies of the resolutions passed as special business at the AGM will shortly be available for inspection on the National Storage Mechanism 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://investors.avast.com/ .

Following the declaration of the final dividend by shareholders at the AGM today, a dividend of 10.3 US cents per ordinary share in the Company for the financial year ended 31 December 2019 will be paid on 24 June 2020 to those shareholders registered at the close of business on 22 May 2020.
