t As noted in the Company's trading update which was announced prior to the AGM, resolution 6 relating to the re-election of Sandra Boss was withdrawn in connection with Sandra taking up a full time executive role.

   *     Resolutions 15 to 18 were passed as special resolutions. 

We note the significant vote against the shortening of the notice period for calling general meetings to 14 days, which was opposed by a small number of shareholders. We will continue to consult with shareholders who did not vote in favour of this resolution to understand their reasons and will provide an update within six months as required by the UK Corporate Governance Code. The Company continues to maintain that having the flexibility to call general meetings on short notice is, in certain circumstances, of benefit to shareholders.

Directorate changes

As previously announced, Nick Salmon has now retired from the Board at the conclusion of the AGM. Following the Company's trading update which was announced prior to the AGM, resolution 6 relating to the re-election of Sandra Boss was withdrawn in connection with Sandra taking up a full time executive role. Consequently, Sandra Boss has also retired from the Board at the conclusion of the AGM.

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6, copies of the resolutions, designated as being special business, passed at the AGM will be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will be available shortly for inspection at: www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM

These voting results will also be available on the Company's website at https://www.elementis.com/agm-information/

later this afternoon.
