* Special resolution

The Remuneration Committee notes the voting on  Resolution 3, the binding vote on the Directors’ Remuneration Policy.

The Group actively engages with its shareholders and believes that the Remuneration Policy changes are necessary, appropriate and in their best interests. Phase One of the Build to Last transformation programme has created a solid foundation for Balfour Beatty’s future profitable growth, but there remains much to be done to achieve the Group’s full potential value and the new Policy aligns with that goal. The Committee will ensure that implementation of the Policy, from target-setting to incentive awards, focuses on that objective and will continue to listen carefully to shareholders’ views and consult on any material changes.
