Result of General Meeting-MARLOWE PLC

Result of General Meeting

On 2 June 2023, Marlowe plc ("Marlowe", the "Company" or the "Group"), the UK leader in business-critical services and software which assure regulatory compliance, announced that it was proposing to undertake a capital reduction of the Company's share premium account (the "Capital Reduction").

Whilst the Board and management remain focussed on the continued execution of the Company's stated growth strategy, the Capital Reduction is a means of avoiding a potential restriction on the Company's ability to either make dividend payments and other distributions or to purchase its own shares in the future. Shareholders should note that the Capital Reduction itself will not involve any distribution or repayment of share premium by the Company and will not reduce the net assets of the Company. 

The Capital Reduction was subject, inter alia, to approval by Shareholders at a general meeting. The Company is pleased to announce that the Resolution at the General Meeting held today was duly passed.

The proxy votes cast prior to the General Meeting were as follows:

*A vote "Withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes "For" or "Against" the Resolution.

The Company will now apply to the Court for confirmation of the Capital Reduction. The Capital Reduction will only become effective if the Court confirms the Capital Reduction and the order of the Court confirming the Capital Reduction is delivered to, and registered by, the Registrar of Companies in England and Wales.
