Notes:

1. Any proxy appointments which gave discretion to the Chairman have been included in the "for" total.

2. A "vote withheld" is not a vote under English law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes "for" and "against" a resolution.

3. Discretionary proxy votes lodged in favour of a third party have not been included in the "for", "against" or "total" figures.

4. At the date of the AGM the issued share capital of the Company is 388,890,206 ordinary shares.

Resolution 2: (Remuneration Report)

The Board notes that, while Resolution 2 to receive and approve the Directors' Remuneration Report was passed, a significant minority of shareholders who voted 37.19% chose to vote against this resolution. The views of all shareholders are important to RWS and, following the AGM, the Group will consult further with those shareholders who voted against this resolution to better understand their specific concerns as it prepares to put its Remuneration Report to shareholders at the 2022 AGM.
