The Board appreciates the support shown by the majority of Shareholders for the resolutions at today's AGM. We note the significant minority vote against the Company's Remuneration Report. We are also aware of the guidance from ISS which states that payment of transaction-related bonuses is not in line with its policy. The Remuneration Committee specifically considered this point, together with the guidance from ISS, at the time the payment was approved and determined that, in this case, a modest transaction-related bonus of the level approved was entirely appropriate in recognition of the additional and intensive work involved during and immediately following the transaction, which provided savings in terms of professional fees significantly in excess of the approved amount.

Notes:

-- The full text of each of the resolutions is contained in the Notice of Annual General Meeting dated 16

August 2022, which is available on the Company's website at   https://www.eckoh.com . 

-- Proxy appointments which gave discretion to the Chairman of the AGM have been included in the "For" total for the appropriate resolution.

-- A "Withheld" vote is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes cast "For" or "Against" a resolution.

-- The proportion of "Total % Instructed" is the total of votes instructed for that resolution (i.e. the total votes "For", "Against" and "Withheld" for that resolution) expressed as a percentage of the issued share capital.

-- The issued share capital of the Company as of 14 July 2022 was 292,869,261 ordinary shares of 0.25p each. As of 14 July 2022, the Company holds 1,943,311 shares in the Company in Treasury shares.
