    Notes:

     

    A member entitled to attend and vote at the meeting is entitled to appoint one or more proxies to attend and vote on his or her behalf. A proxy need not also be a member. A member may appoint more than one proxy in relation to the meeting provided that each proxy is appointed to exercise the rights to a different share or shares held by the member.

     

    To be effective the proxy appointment must be completed in accordance with the instructions and received by the Company no later than 48 hours before the time for which the meeting is convened.

     

    Holders of the Company's preference shares have no entitlement to receive notice of, attend or vote at the meeting.

     

    NOTES TO RESOLUTIONS

     

    Resolution 1

     

    To formally receive the Report of the Directors and the audited accounts for the year ended 31 December 2016.

     

    Resolution 2

     

    To formally approve the Directors’ Remuneration Report for the year ended 31 December 2016.

     

    Resolution 3

     

    To formally appoint the PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP as auditors of the Company to hold office with effect from the end of the meeting.

     

    Resolution 4

     

    To formally authorise the Directors to determine the auditors remuneration.

     

    Resolution 5

     

    The UK Companies Act 2006 states that UK Companies cannot incur any ‘political expenditure’ or make any 'political donations' to political organisations, parties or independent election candidates without shareholder approval. The legislation is very broadly drafted and there is a concern amongst many companies, including amongst the Company's peer group, that normal business activities may be caught by it. For example, it could catch the funding of seminars and other functions that politicians may be invited to, supporting organisations that are involved in policy review and law reform and perhaps even matching employees’ donations to some charities.

     

    Our policy is not to make donations to political parties or election candidates and the resolution is not designed to allow us to do so, it is merely as a precaution in case the legislation is inadvertently contravened. It is also implicit within our Corporate Governance Framework that political donations require Shareholder approval and we are not aware of any instances occurring to date that would require such an approval (and do not expect there to be any).

     

    Resolution 6

     

    To give the Company authority to buy back its 83/8% preference shares.

     

    Resolution 7

     

    To give the Company authority to buy back its 103/8% preference shares.
