* Special resolution.

The Board notes the votes against Resolution 5, representing 23.8% of the shares voted at the meeting. This represents 5.2% of the Company's issued share capital and 10.3% of the voting rights in issue. The Board understands that the majority of the votes against this resolution were from a single shareholder and relates to the number of directorships held by the Chairman of the Board. The Board is aware of the Chairman's other commitments, all of which are non-executive, and believe that he has sufficient capacity to devote to the Company's affairs. Nevertheless, the Board will be seeking engagement with this shareholder, and any others that it can identify as having voted against the resolution, and will provide a further update in due course.

For the purposes of section 341 of the Companies Act 2006, the votes validly cast are expressed in the table above as a percentage of the Company's total voting rights as at the close of business on 19 November 2020 (25,054,198), being the time at which a shareholder had to be registered in the register of members in order to vote at the annual general meeting. A vote "withheld" is not a vote in law and has not been counted as a vote "for" or "against" a resolution.

The number of ordinary shares in issue at the date of this announcement is 50,108,397. On a poll the voting rights are one vote for every two shares held. The number of voting rights is therefore 25,054,198.

A copy of the special business resolutions will be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism ("NSM") and will shortly be available for inspection on the NSM's website at: https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism .
