The Board acknowledges the failure to pass resolution 7 and intends to take action to understand the reasons behind the result. The Board is disappointed in this outcome given that the resolution follows the provisions of the Pre-emption Group's Statement of Principles for the disapplication of pre-emption rights and reflects UK-listed company market practice.

The Board considers the flexibility afforded by this authority to be in the best interests of the Company and its shareholders and notes that it has received support for this resolution at previous Annual General Meetings. However, the Board remains committed to continuing open and transparent dialogue and will, accordingly, seek to continue to engage with those shareholders regarding their views in this area.

As at 15 September 2022, there were 62,137,757 ordinary shares in issue. Shareholders are entitled to one vote per share. Votes withheld are not votes in law and so have not been included in the calculation of the proportion of votes for and against a resolution.
