While the Board is pleased that all resolutions were supported by the required majorities, we note that more than 20% of votes were cast against Resolutions 2, 3, 4 and 8. Over the past year, the Board has actively engaged with shareholders regarding its approach to director remuneration, resulting in adjustments to the proposed Remuneration Policy. Looking ahead, the Board will continue to engage with shareholders to further understand their perspectives and the reasons behind their opposition to certain proposals. In accordance with the UK Corporate Governance Code, we will provide an update on our engagement efforts within the next six months.
