Shareholders are entitled to one vote per share. Resolutions 1 to 18 (inclusive) were passed as ordinary resolutions and resolutions 19 to 22 (inclusive) were passed as special resolutions.
Resolution 2 (directors’ remuneration policy) was passed with 90.28% votes in favour.
Resolution 3 (directors’ remuneration report) was passed with 63.03% votes in favour.
The Board notes the level of opposition to resolution 3 and understands that a number of shareholders disagreed with the decision of the Remuneration Committee (the ‘Committee’) to award the Chief Executive an increase of 5% to his base salary from 1 July 2017, noting the pay increases awarded to him in recent years. This year, the Committee reviewed the Chief Executive’s base salary in the context of revising the directors’ remuneration policy. The Committee is satisfied that the Chief Executive’s base salary reflects the progress made against Kier’s Vision 2020 strategy and is now competitive. As a result, and having taken into consideration the average increases awarded across the Group, the Committee does not expect to approve significant increases in the base salary of the Chief Executive during the life of the new remuneration policy. If circumstances arise in which the Committee considers such an increase to be appropriate, it will engage with shareholders before making its final decision.
A copy of all resolutions passed, other than those concerning ordinary business, will today be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism in accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2. These resolutions will shortly be available for inspection at: www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/NSM
