Lord Turner did not stand for re-election as a Non-Executive Director of the Company, and retired from the Board with effect from the conclusion of the AGM.

Mr Foley, Mr Nicandrou and Mr Falcon did not stand for election or re-election and their appointment as Executive Directors ceased with effect from the conclusion of the AGM. They will however continue to serve as members of the Group Executive Committee.

As at 6.30pm (UK time) on 14 May 2019, the number of issued shares of the Company was 2,559,708,677 ordinary shares, which was the total number of shares entitling the holders to attend and vote for or against all the resolutions at the AGM. In accordance with the Company's Articles of Association, on a poll every member present in person or by proxy has one vote for every share held.

There were no restrictions on shareholders to cast votes on any of the resolutions proposed at the AGM. Votes withheld are not votes in law and therefore have not been counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes for and against a resolution.

Pursuant to Listing Rule 9.6.2 of the UK Listing Rules, copies of all resolutions, other than those concerning ordinary business, passed at the AGM on 16 May 2019, will shortly be available to view via the National Storage Mechanism at http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM
