1 Steve Morgan's interests are held through Bridgemere Securities Limited and The Morgan Foundation (a charitable trust of which Mr Morgan is a trustee), which hold 107,386,045 and 42,000,000 shares respectively. The number of ordinary shares listed for Mr Morgan also includes the interests of Mr Morgan's concert party, including the interests of Housing Deposit Trust (270,000), Bryan Dix (230,000), Vincent Fairclough (59,941), Ashley Lewis (12,420) and Victoria Fairclough (2,370).

 

2 At the Annual General Meeting on 7 November 2016 the Redrow shareholders approved resolutions authorising the directors of Redrow to undertake share repurchases (the "Buyback Resolution") and approving a waiver of Rule 9 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers by the Takeover Panel in connection with an increase in the shareholding of Mr Morgan and his concert parties as a result of any such share repurchases (up to a maximum of 44.88 per cent. of the issued share capital of Redrow) (the "Waiver Resolution"). Redrow notes that the Waiver Resolution was not effective as it did not take account of the shareholdings of Ashley Lewis, Vincent Fairclough, Victoria Fairclough, Bryan Dix, the Housing Deposit Trust and Toscafund Asset Management LLP (which has since, as far as Redrow is aware, entirely disposed of its interest in Redrow) which the executive of the Takeover Panel has confirmed form part of Mr Morgan's concert party. As a result, no share repurchases have taken place nor shall take place under the authority granted by the Buyback Resolution.
