Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group plc - Result of AGM

Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group plc

Annual General Meeting - 1 May 2018

At the Annual General Meeting of Jardine Lloyd Thompson Group plc (the "Company") held on Tuesday 1 May 2018 all resolutions were duly approved by the shareholders by way of a poll.  The voting results are set out below and are also available on the Company's website at jlt.com/investors.

Under the Listing Rules of the Financial Conduct Authority, because Jardine Matheson Holdings Limited is classed as a "controlling shareholder" (that is, it exercises or controls, either on its own or together with any person with whom it is acting in concert, 30% or more of the voting rights in the Company) a resolution for the re-election of Independent Directors must be passed by a majority of votes cast by the independent shareholders of the Company (i.e. any shareholder that is not a controlling shareholder), as well as by a majority of votes cast by all the shareholders.

Accordingly the results below show the voting by all shareholders and also, on Resolutions 4, 5, 6, 12 and 14 by the independent shareholders.  The percentage of votes cast by the independent shareholders exclude the Jardine Matheson Holdings shareholding of 87,974,158 shares.

A vote withheld is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the votes for or against a resolution.
