Submission of Matters to a Vote of Security Holders

STERIS plc (the “Company” or “STERIS”) held a Court Meeting of Shareholders (the “Court Meeting”) and a General Meeting of Shareholders (the “General Meeting”), each on February 28, 2019. At the Court Meeting, STERIS shareholders voted on a proposal to approve (with or without modification) the “Scheme,” as set forth in the section titled “The Scheme of Arrangement” in the Company’s Proxy Statement/Prospectus, dated January 31, 2019. At the General Meeting, the Company’s shareholders voted on proposals to approve (i) the Scheme, a reduction of the share capital of the Company and certain ancillary matters, as set forth in the Company’s Proxy Statement/Prospectus, dated January 31, 2019, and (ii) the creation of distributable profits within STERIS Ireland. The Scheme provides for the redomiciliation of the Company from the United Kingdom to Ireland, to be achieved through the insertion of a new Irish public limited company (“STERIS Ireland”) above the Company, with Company shareholders to receive one STERIS Ireland ordinary share for each Company share held. The proposals are described in more detail in the Company’s definitive Proxy Statement/Prospectus, dated January 31, 2019.
