Note1: The 'Vote Withheld' option is provided to enable the shareholder to abstain on any resolution. It is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of votes for and against a resolution.

Note2: The total maximum number of Ordinary Shares which may be purchased by Next for cancellation pursuant to such contingent purchase contracts is 3.0 million. As explained in the Notice of Meeting, Next has disregarded 3.0 million votes from both the total number of votes cast in favour of the resolution and the total votes cast so that the voting of those shares did not affect the result of the poll.

In accordance with LR 9.6.2, a copy of resolutions passed as special business will be submitted as soon as practicable to the National Storage Mechanism and will be available shortly for inspection at http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM
