                                          * Includes discretionary votes. 
                         ** A vote withheld is not a vote in law and is not counted in the 
                               calculation of the votes for or against a resolution. 
                         The shareholder vote to approve the Directors' Remuneration Report 
                                (Resolution 3) was passed with a majority of 67.14%. 
 
                          The Board was pleased that the Resolution was approved and that 
                           the vast majority of our largest shareholders voted in favour. 
                     The Board however recognises that a meaningful proportion of shareholders 
                                          did not support the Resolution. 
 
                           The Board also notes that Resolution 10, the re-election of Jo 
                           Harlow, was supported by 76.78% of shareholders. We understand 
                          that those shareholders that did not support this Resolution did 
                              so because of her role as Remuneration Committee Chair. 
 
                         Halma has a long history of exercising restraint on executive pay 
                         and the phased changes made over the last two years are a one-time 
                         reset. Recently, Andrew Williams has announced his retirement and 
                       current CFO Marc Ronchetti has been named CEO-Designate. The alignment 
                          of Halma's executive pay with the market provides the Nomination 
                           Committee with the tools it needs to attract the best external 
                                   talent to the CFO role as quickly as possible. 
 
                          Through the 2021 and 2022 financial years and prior to the 2022 
                           Annual General Meeting we carried out comprehensive engagement 
                       with our largest shareholders and, as a result, modified our original 
                           plans. The Board would like to thank all the shareholders that 
                          have taken part in the engagement and for the feedback provided. 
                          We will continue to review our remuneration practices and engage 
                           with shareholders and their representative proxy bodies in the 
                          coming months. As part of this consultation, the Board will seek 
                           to fully understand the reasons behind these votes against and
