Statement on 2020 Annual General Meeting Directors' Remuneration Policy Vote

 

At the Foxtons Group plc (the 'Company') Annual General Meeting (the 'AGM') held on 13 May 2020, Resolution 2, to approve the Directors' Remuneration Policy (the 'Policy'), was approved by a substantial majority of c.78% of shareholders. Furthermore, following the AGM it came to our attention that one of the Company's largest shareholders had been unable to cast all their votes in favour of Resolution 2 due to operational difficulties resulting from Covid-19. Had this shareholder been able to vote as intended, Resolution 2 would have obtained votes in favour of well over 80%.

 

In preparing the 2020 Directors' Remuneration Policy, the Remuneration Committee carried out an extensive shareholder consultation exercise with its largest shareholders and their representative bodies, the results of which fully are explained in the 2019 Annual Report. Following the consultation exercise some changes were made to the final Policy to reflect shareholder feedback and the Board has a clear understanding of the reasons why some shareholders were not supportive of the Policy. The Board believes the Policy approved at the 2020 AGM is the best structure to provide strong alignment with shareholders' interests in a highly cyclical business such as Foxtons. We therefore still consider this Policy to be in the best interests of the Company and the shareholders, and do not intend to propose further changes to the Policy at the 2021 AGM.
