1.          Proxy appointments which gave discretion to the Chairman of the Annual General Meeting have been included in the "For" total of the appropriate resolution.

3.          Votes "For" and "Against" any resolution are expressed as a percentage of votes validly cast for that resolution.

4.          The number of shares in issue at 6.00 p.m. on 13 September 2017 was 73,764,035 (the "Share Capital") and at that time, Hardy did not hold any shares in treasury.

5.          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 of votes "For" and "Against" that resolution) expressed as a percentage of the Share Capital.
