2022 Annual General Meeting Voting Outcome Update



As announced on 12 July 2022, Burberry Group plc received more than 20% votes against the re-election of Antoine de Saint-Affrique as a Director of the Company at the 2022 Annual General Meeting.


The Board was disappointed with the outcome of the vote and has actively engaged with significant shareholders who voted against Antoine's re-election to understand their concerns.


Antoine is a committed and engaged Director whose skills and experience enable him to bring a particularly valuable perspective to Board matters.  Antoine has consistently fulfilled his obligations as a Director including during exceptionally demanding periods and the Board believes that he has the capacity to continue to devote sufficient time to effectively discharge his duties.


The Board will continue to engage with shareholders to understand and respond to their views on this matter and will provide a further update in the Annual Report and Accounts 2022/23.
