Resolution 8

RPS notes the 22% of votes that have been cast against the reappointment of the Chairman and shareholders have raised concerns about the number of directorships he holds. Although disappointed by the number of votes against, the Board remains fully supportive of the Chairman and the role that he performs. RPS will, through Liz Peace the Senior Independent Director, consult with our shareholders to seek their views and engage further on this point.

Board Resignation

Having not sought re-election at the Annual General Meeting Robert Miller-Bakewell resigned as a Director of the Company with effect from 1 May 2019. Liz Peace has been appointed as the Senior Independent Director and Catherine Glickman has been appointed as Chairman of the Remuneration Committee both of these appointments are effective from 1 May 2019.

Notes to AGM figures:

The percentage of votes "For" and "Against" each resolution are expressed as a percentage of the total votes cast "For" and "Against" the resolution (together the "Total Votes"). A vote withheld is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of votes "For" and "Against" a resolution.

The "% of total voting rights" column shows the percentage that the Total Votes on that resolution represent of the total number of voting rights attached to shares in issue at the date of the AGM. The total number of voting rights attached to shares in issue at the date of the AGM was 226,253,513.

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2, copies of all the resolutions passed by the Company at its Annual General Meeting have been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will be available for inspection at http://www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM
