AGM 2020 POLL RESULTS

G4S plc, the parent company of the G4S global security group, announces that its AGM was held earlier today. In accordance with the arrangements set out in the notice of meeting published on 14 May 2020, the AGM was held with the minimum quorum.

This included resolutions: to allow the payment of political donations; to allow general meetings other than AGMs to be called on 14 days' notice; and a general authority to make market purchases for up to 10% of its own shares. The board has no present intention of utilising the authority to buy back shares, which has been renewed in accordance with common business practice.
