Update on 2019 Annual General Meeting resolution votes
At the Annual General Meeting of the Company held on 3 May 2019, all resolutions proposed at the meeting were passed. The Company's Result of AGM announcement is available on the Company's website.
Although Resolution 13, an ordinary resolution to authorise the Directors to allot the unissued share capital, was passed with a majority of 66.37%, some South African institutional shareholders voted against this resolution. This resulted in the Company's inclusion in The Investment Association's public register of shareholder dissent. intu is therefore providing an update in line with the UK Corporate Governance Code and Investment Association Guidelines.
The votes against Resolution 13 reflect prevailing institutional voting guidelines in South Africa, which differ from those generally applied in the UK regarding the subject of this resolution. intu has regular contact with its South African institutional shareholders and while they do not support this resolution, they do acknowledge that intu will continue to operate in accordance with UK market practice.
This will be explained in intu's 2019 Annual Report & Accounts and in the explanatory notes to resolutions to be proposed at its 2020 AGM.
