*Special resolutions

 

Results of the poll can also be viewed on the Company's website:  https://www.trainlinegroup.com/AGM

 

Please note a 'vote withheld' is not a vote under English law and is not counted in the calculation of votes 'for' and 'against' a resolution.

The total number of shares in issue as at 29 June 2023 was 480,680,508 Ordinary shares.

The Company has engaged with shareholders that did not support resolution 4, who confirmed that their votes were due to the Board not yet aligning with the female representation on Boards target set by the Hampton-Alexander Review. The Board and the Nomination Committee have taken steps to address Board composition and recognise this requires further action.

The Board unanimously supports the Chair's re-election. We will continue to engage with shareholders and will publish an update in accordance with the UK Corporate Governance Code, within six months of the AGM with a final summary provided in the Company's next Annual Report.

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2 copies of the resolutions will be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at: https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism
