Resolution 9 THAT the Company be and is hereby generally and unconditionally authorised for the purposes of Section 701 of the Act to make one or more market purchases (within the meaning of Section 693(4) of the Act) on the London Stock Exchange of ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each in the capital of the Company PROVIDED THAT: the maximum aggregate number of shares hereby authorised to be purchased is 67,092,931 ordinary shares of 0.1 pence each (representing approximately 10% of the Company's issued ordinary share capital as at 07 June 2022, the latest practicable date prior to publication of this Notice of AGM); the minimum price (exclusive of expenses) which may be paid for such shares is 0.1 pence per share; the maximum price (exclusive of expenses) which may be paid for an ordinary share shall not be more than 105% of the average closing middle market quotation for an ordinary share as derived from the London Stock Exchange plc for the five business days immediately preceding the date on which the ordinary share is purchased; unless previously renewed, varied or revoked, the authority hereby conferred shall expire at the conclusion of the Company's next annual general meeting; and the Company may make a contract or contracts to purchase ordinary shares under the authority hereby conferred prior to the expiry of such authority, which will or may be executed wholly or partly after the expiry of such authority, and may make a purchase of ordinary shares in pursuance of any such contract or contracts. By order of the Board Beach Secretaries Limited 42 New Road Explanatory Notes Resolution 1 The Directors are required by law to lay the Audited Accounts and the Directors' Report and Auditors' Report for the 12 months ended 31 December 2021 before a general meeting of the Company. At the AGM, these documents will be presented to shareholders. Resolution 2 The auditors are required to be re-appointed at each annual general meeting at which Accounts are laid. The Directors, on the recommendation of the Audit Committee (which has evaluated the effectiveness and independence of the external auditors) are proposing the re-appointment of Jeffreys Henry LLP as auditors. Resolution 3 This resolution authorises the Directors to fix the auditors' remuneration. It is considered best practice to provide for this authority in a separate resolution and not link it to the appointment of the auditors in Resolution 2. Resolution 4 The Articles of Association require the number nearest to, but not greater than, one third of the Directors for the time being of the Company to retire at each annual general meeting, with the longest in office since their appointment or last re-election retiring first. Currently, the Board of Directors has six Directors. Of the current Directors, Dr Yamin 'Mo' Khan and Martin Gouldstone are excluded from the calculation of the number of directors to retire, which means that one of the other four directors must retire and offer himself for re-election. Leo Toole was last re-elected at the 2020 AGM and he therefore offers himself for re-election. Resolution 5 The Articles of Association require any Director who has been appointed by the Board since the last annual general meeting of the Company to retire and such person may offer himself for re-election. Dr Yamin 'Mo' Khan has been appointed as a Director of the Company since the Company's last annual general meeting and will accordingly retire in accordance with the terms of the Company's Articles of Association and offer himself for re-election. Resolution 6 As noted above, the Articles of Association require any Director who has been appointed by the Board since the last annual general meeting of the Company to retire and such person may offer himself for re-election. Martin Gouldstone has been appointed as a Director of the Company since the Company's last annual general meeting and will accordingly retire in accordance with the terms of the Company's Articles of Association and offer himself for re-election.

This maximum is reduced by the nominal amount of any Relevant Securities allotted under the authority set out in paragraph 7.2 of Resolution 7; and (ii) in any other case, Relevant Securities up to a maximum nominal amount of £223,643 which represents approximately one-third of the Company's issued ordinary shares as at 7 June 2022.

In Resolution 7, Relevant Securities means (i) shares in the Company, other than shares allotted pursuant to: (a) an employee share scheme (as defined in section 1166 of the Act); (b) a right to subscribe for shares in the Company where the grant of the right itself constitutes a Relevant Security; or (c) a right to convert securities into shares in the Company where the grant of the right itself constitutes a Relevant Security; and (ii) any right to subscribe for or to convert any security into shares in the Company other than rights to subscribe for or convert any security into shares allotted pursuant to an employee share scheme (as defined in section 1166 of the Act). References to the allotment of Relevant Securities in Resolution 7 includes the grant of such rights. Resolution 8 This is a special resolution to disapply statutory pre-emption rights otherwise applicable to the Company in respect of Resolution 7. In this regard, it should be noted that the authority conferred at the general meeting of the Company held in July 2021 will expire at the end of the AGM. This resolution will, if passed, give the Directors power, pursuant to the authority to allot granted by Resolution 7, to allot equity securities (as defined by section 560 of the Act) for cash without first offering them to existing shareholders in proportion to their existing holdings: (a) in connection with a rights issue or open offer subject to any arrangements that the Directors consider appropriate to deal with fractions and overseas requirements; and (b) in any other case, up to a maximum nominal amount of £67,093 which represents approximately 10% of the Company's issued ordinary share capital as at 7 June 2022.
