The Board is again pleased that the majority of resolutions have been passed with a high level of support from shareholders. The Board has considered the votes against resolution 4, the re-election of Roger Humm (36.4%), at the AGM. In order to better understand the reasons for these votes against, the Board has engaged with the majority of those shareholders that voted against this resolution, considered their views and received feedback from the Company's advisers and the Company Secretary. The Board will continue to engage with shareholders to understand their views on this and any other significant matter of the Company at future AGMs and at presentations of the Company's interim and annual results.
