The Board notes that while resolution number 3a, the re-election of Michael Roney, was passed with the requisite majority of votes, a significant minority of shareholders chose not to support this resolution.  The views of all our shareholders are important to us and we will consult with those shareholders who voted against this resolution to understand their specific concerns and publish an update in due course in accordance with the UK Corporate Governance Code.

 

The full text of these resolutions is set out in the Notice of 2021 Annual General Meeting which was posted to shareholders on 24 March 2021 and which is available on the Company's website at https://www.graftonplc.com/investors/shareholder-services/shareholder-meetings/.

 

In accordance with Rule 9.6.1 of the Listing Rules, copies of all resolutions other than resolutions concerning ordinary business have been forwarded to the UK's National Storage Mechanism where they will shortly be available for inspection at
