In accordance with the 2018 UK Corporate Governance Code, the Board notes that although Resolution 2 (Approval of the Directors' Remuneration Report ("DRR")) passed with the requisite majority, it received 20% or more votes against the Board's recommendation.

The Board considers that the existing DRR is in the best interests of all stakeholders of the business and that the Remuneration Committee has discharged its duties properly. Accordingly, the Board will continue to support the DRR in its present form. In formulating its remuneration policies and the DRR itself, the Remuneration Committee has taken extensive external advice and has largely followed that advice. In recommending the DRR, the Remuneration Committee has, in particular, recognised that senior executive Board members have important dual responsibilities both as Group executives and day to day, frontline operators. The Remuneration Committee is particularly mindful that were these roles to be separated, significant additional cost to shareholders would be incurred.

The Board further notes that some of the votes against the DRR were cast as a result of a "vote against" recommendation being received from certain proxy shareholder companies. Certain of these recommendations have been made on the basis of the internal opinions of these proxy advisory firms, opinions formed both without consultation with the Company and which are not aligned with the Company's governance framework. As a general rule, where such proxy advisory companies make their recommendations based upon the governance framework that Braemar is governed by, then the Board takes note of such recommendations and takes appropriate remedial action. Where, however, such recommendations reflect the opinions of the proxy advisory firms which are not aligned with the company's governance framework, then in the absence of any one-to-one discussion with individual shareholders, the Board does not ordinarily take any further action.

Following the approval of Resolution 18, the Company has now entered into the Directors' Deed of Release (as defined in the Notice of Braemar's 2022 Annual General Meeting), which constituted a smaller related party transaction pursuant to LR 11.1.10 R. Further details of the Directors' Deed of Release are set out in the Company's announcement dated 27 July 2022 and the Notice of Braemar's 2022 Annual General Meeting.

The Board and the Remuneration Committee encourage an open and constructive dialogue directly with its shareholders and continue to be willing to engage with any shareholder on any relevant topics should they so wish.

Please note that a vote withheld is not a vote under English law and is not counted in the calculation of the votes "for" and "against" a resolution. The total voting rights that members were entitled to exercise at the AGM were 35,522,092.
