Statement regarding voting result

The Board of Foxtons Group plc notes that while a significant majority of Shareholders that voted at today's Annual General Meeting supported Resolution 2 to approve the Directors' Remuneration Report, a notable number of Shareholders opposed this resolution. All other resolutions received substantial support.

The Board acknowledges the concerns raised by Shareholders in particular regarding the FY2018 bonus outcomes. As stated in our Annual Report, the Committee will be conducting a detailed review of the Remuneration Policy later this year, which will be submitted for Shareholders' approval at the 2020 AGM. As part of this review, we will take into account the changes in the UK Corporate Governance Code along with shareholder and UK remuneration governance guidelines.

In line with our commitment to maintaining an open and transparent dialogue with Shareholders, we will be consulting with all major Shareholders in the second half of 2019 to gain their input in this review. We will also consult further on the concerns raised on this resolution and in accordance with the UK Corporate Governance Code, we will publish an update on that engagement within six months of the AGM.

 1.                                     All resolutions were passed. 
 2.                                     Proxy appointments which gave discretion to 
                                         the Chairman of the AGM have been included 
                                         in the "For" total for the appropriate resolution. 
 3.                                     Votes "For" and "Against" any resolution are 
                                         expressed as a percentage of votes validly 
                                         cast for that resolution. 
 4.                                     A "Vote withheld" is not a vote in law and 
                                         is not counted in the calculation of the percentage 
                                         of shares voted "For" or "Against" any resolution 
                                         nor in the calculation of the proportion of 
                                         "Total issued share capital instructed" for 
                                         any resolution. 
 5.                                     The number of shares in issue at close of business 
                                         on 16 May 2019 was 275,104,391 (the "Share 
                                         Capital") and at that time, the Company did 
                                         not hold any shares in treasury. 
 6.                                     The proportion of "Total issued share capital 
                                         instructed" for any resolution is the total 
                                         of votes validly cast for that resolution (i.e. 
                                         the total votes "For" and "Against" that resolution). 
 7.                                     The full text of the resolutions passed at 
                                         the AGM can be found in the Notice of Annual 
                                         General Meeting which is available on the Company's

 8.                                     A copy of resolutions 11 to 14 passed at the 
                                         AGM will shortly be submitted to the National 
                                         Storage Mechanism and will be available for
