In respect of Resolution 3 (Election of Marcelo Bastos), the Company plans to consult with shareholders to understand the reasons behind the result and intends to continue its engagement with shareholders in relation to the composition of the Board. Anglo American has a formal, rigorous and transparent procedure to ensure the Board has the appropriate mix of skills, experience and knowledge that reflect the breadth of its business.

 

In respect of Resolution 18 (Disapplication of pre-emption rights), the authority sought by the Company is aligned with the Investment Association's share capital guidelines and market practice for FTSE listed companies.  However, Anglo American is mindful of the concerns expressed by a number of its South African shareholders which has led to Resolution 18 not receiving the same high level of support compared to previous years. The Company will engage with its South African shareholders to clarify their concerns. 

 

This announcement will be available for viewing on the Company's website, www.angloamerican.com, as soon as practicable.

 

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2, a copy of all resolutions passed, other than resolutions concerning ordinary business, have been submitted to the UK Listing Authority via the National Storage Mechanism and are available for inspection at www.morningstar.co.uk/uk/nsm.
