Resolution 14 (authority to allot shares) received 79.39% of votes in favour and was duly passed at the AGM. The level of
allotment authority therefore continues to be supported by a clear majority of the Company's shareholders voting at the AGM.
This is a customary authority sought by UK listed companies in line with the Investment Association's share capital management
guidelines. Following shareholder consultation in previous years, the level of authority sought (and approved today by
shareholders) is less than that typically sought by UK listed companies. The Company is aware that certain overseas institutional
investors have a policy of not supporting this authority. The Board considers the flexibility afforded by this authority to be in the
best interests of the Company and shareholders. In accordance with provision 4 of the UK Corporate Governance Code (the
"Code") the Company will continue to engage with relevant shareholders on this matter. An update will be provided within six
months of the AGM, in accordance with the Code, with a final summary to be included in the Company's 2024 annual report
and accounts.
