Please indicate with a cross (‘X’) in the appropriate box how you wish the proxy (normally the chair of the meeting) to vote.

If you mark the box ‘Vote Withheld’, it will mean that your proxy will abstain from voting and, accordingly, your vote will not be counted either for or against the relevant resolution.

If you select ‘Discretionary’ or fail to select any of the given options, the proxy can vote as he or she chooses or can decide not to vote at all.

All of the Special Resolutions can either be taken together as 1 vote at the first option, or you can indicate your separate vote for each of the 7 resolutions.
