Resolution 2 - Directors' Remuneration Report

The Board notes that while Resolution 2 to approve the Directors' Remuneration Report was passed, 35.57% of shareholders opposed this resolution. The Board and the Company remain committed to continued engagement with shareholders and proxy advisors to address concerns pertaining to directors' remuneration, and discretion applied to executive bonus awards.

Following recent engagement on the Company's executive remuneration arrangements with major shareholders and proxy advisors prior to today's AGM, the Board understands that shareholders' primary concern was the Finance Director's 2019/20 annual bonus where 50% was based on the disposal of the Group's housebuilding divisions which completed in January 2020.

The Remuneration Committee's decision to base half of the Finance Director's 2019/2020 annual bonus on the successful completion of the corporate transaction reflected that this project represented a significant proportion of the Finance Director's duties and responsibilities in the 2019/20 financial year. This approach was also within the scope of the Remuneration Policy in force at that time. In making the award in respect of the disposal, the Committee also had full regard to the Finance Director's wider contribution and the underlying performance of the Group.

The Board will continue to engage with shareholders to ensure their views are fully understood and considered and can be taken into account by the Committee in the future. In line with the provisions of the UK Corporate Governance Code, the Board will provide an update on the views received and actions taken in response no later than in six months' time.

In accordance with LR 9.6.2, copies of the relevant ordinary and special resolutions passed at the meeting will be submitted to the FCA's National Storage Mechanism and will be available to view at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism.
