*Special Resolution

The Board is pleased that all Resolutions were passed and would like to thank our shareholders for their continued support. While the Board is satisfied with the level of support achieved for Resolution 2 (to approve the Directors' Remuneration Policy), which was passed with a substantial majority of 78.41%, it is acknowledged that a number of shareholders voted against the proposal.

As explained in the Company's Annual Report for the year ending 31 December 2019, in preparing the 2020 Directors' Remuneration Policy, the Remuneration Committee carried out an extensive shareholder consultation exercise with its largest shareholders and their representative bodies, the results of which are explained fully in the 2019 Annual Report. The Committee was pleased that the majority of our largest shareholders were supportive of our original proposals, with some changes made to the final Policy to reflect shareholder feedback. The Board believes that as a result of this consultation exercise it has a good understanding of the reasons why some shareholders were not supportive of the Policy, the main reasons for which are explained fully in the 2019 Annual Report and are summarised below:

   --    Unconventional incentive structure, in particular the use of Restricted Shares 
   --    Quantum of award under the Restricted Share Plan 
   --    Discretionary nature of the underpins on incentives 

The Committee believes that a vote of 78.41% in favour is a satisfactory outcome in the circumstances and that the proposed Policy is the best structure to provide strong alignment with shareholders' interests in a highly cyclical business such as Foxtons. We therefore do not intend to make any changes to the Policy. However, in line with the provisions of the UK Corporate Governance Code, the Remuneration Committee will seek to engage with those shareholders who did not support the Policy to confirm its understanding of the reasons for their voting. The Remuneration Committee will provide an update on this process within six months.

 1.          All resolutions were passed. 
 2.          Proxy appointments which gave discretion to the Chairman 
              of the AGM have been included in the "For" total for 
              the appropriate resolution. 
 3.          Votes "For" and "Against" any resolution are expressed 
              as a percentage of votes validly cast for that resolution. 
 4.          A "Vote withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted 
              in the calculation of the percentage of shares voted 
              "For" or "Against" any resolution nor in the calculation 
              of the proportion of "Total issued share capital instructed" 
              for any resolution. 
 5.          The number of shares in issue at close of business 
              on 11 May 2020 was 330,097,758 (the "Share Capital") 
              and at that time, the Company did not hold any shares 
              in treasury. 
 6.          The proportion of "Total issued share capital instructed" 
              for any resolution is the total of votes validly cast 
              for that resolution (i.e. the total votes "For" and 
              "Against" that resolution). 
 7.          The full text of the resolutions passed at the AGM 
              can be found in the Notice of Annual General Meeting 
              which is available on the Company's website at 
 8.          A copy of resolutions 16 to 19 passed at the AGM will 
              shortly be submitted to the National Storage Mechanism 
              and will be available for inspection at 
 9.          The complete poll results will be available shortly 
              on the Company's website at
