Resolutions 1 to 19 were carried.

The total number of voting rights in the Company is 394,092,649.

At the 2019 AGM, 41.77% of votes cast by our shareholders were against Resolution 15, the authority relating to political donations(1) . It is not the policy of the Group to make donations to any political party, nor do we provide financial support to further the aims of any political group or party. In the lead up to the AGM, we engaged with shareholders on this issue and have reviewed the feedback. We appreciate the time given and comments offered which have provided us with a clearer understanding of shareholder views.

As part of our approach to stakeholder engagement, we believe that it is in the best interests of the Company to listen and participate in public debate and opinion-forming on matters which affect the Company's business. We will continue to engage with shareholders, to help formulate our approach to such engagement going forward, and explain why the Board considers the resolution to be in the best interests of the company and our shareholders.
