Result of General Meeting


A general meeting of the ordinary shareholders of DMGT was held today and a special resolution was passed.  The resolution was to amend DMGT's Articles of Association. DMGT undertakes periodic reviews of its Articles of Association and following its most recent review, DMGT decided that it was appropriate to make administrative changes to reflect market practice. For the avoidance of doubt, there are no significant changes to the rights of shareholders¹.


The amended Articles of Association and results of the voting at the general meeting are available on DMGT's website,


In accordance with Listing Rule paragraph 14.3.6, copies of the notice of general meeting and special resolution have been submitted to the Financial Conduct Authority. The notice of general meeting and special resolution will shortly be available for inspection via the National Storage Mechanism website.
