All resolutions were duly passed, and we would like to take this opportunity to thank our shareholders for their ongoing support. In relation to Resolution 2, the Board welcomes the majority support for our new Directors' Remuneration Policy but acknowledges that there were a significant number of votes opposing the resolution.

The Board is committed to maintaining ongoing, open dialogue with our shareholders. In 2020 we engaged with a number of our shareholders to fully understand their concerns following the vote on the Remuneration Policy at the 2020 AGM. Based on the feedback received and the performance of the Group, changes were proposed to the Remuneration Policy.

However, we recognise that further engagement with our shareholders is required and we plan to do this in the coming months. We will publish an update on that engagement within six months of the AGM.

Notes:

   1.   The percentages above are rounded to two decimal places. 

2. A vote withheld is not a vote under English law and is not counted in the calculation of votes "for" and "against" a resolution.

3. The number of ordinary shares in issue at 6.30 p.m. on 24 May 2021 was 161,393,127 of which the Total Voting Rights figure was 161,393,127.

4. In accordance with the requirements of Listing Rule 9.6.2, Intertek Group plc has submitted to the National Storage Mechanism a copy of the resolutions (other than those relating to ordinary business) passed at the Annual General Meeting of Intertek Group plc held today. These will shortly be available for inspection at: https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism
