UPDATE ON RESPONSE TO 2021 AGM VOTING OUTCOME

In response to the voting outcome on the Directors' Remuneration Report (Resolution 2) at the WH Smith PLC Annual General Meeting on 20 January 2021, the following provides an update to the statement made after the vote.

While Resolution 2 to approve the Directors' Remuneration Report was passed, we acknowledge that a significant minority of shareholders, approximately 33%, chose not to support this resolution. We will engage with shareholders and advisory bodies and the Remuneration Committee will consider the feedback received in developing the 2022 Remuneration Policy, which will be put to a vote at the 2022 AGM.

An update on this matter will be included in the 2021 Annual Report.
