As the Company has a controlling shareholder (as defined in the Financial Conduct Authority's Listing Rules), the resolution to elect an independent director (being resolution 5) has, under Listing Rule 9.2.2E, been approved by a majority of the votes cast by:

 

·      the shareholders of the Company as a whole; and

·      the independent shareholders of the Company, that is, all the shareholders entitled to vote on each resolution excluding the controlling shareholder.

 

Note: A "vote withheld" is not a vote in law and is not counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes "for" and "against" a resolution.

 

All of the above resolutions were passed on a show of hands.  Each was passed unanimously in favour. Resolutions 11, 12 and 13 were passed as special resolutions.

 

Following completion of the recent Tender offer and the resulting reduction in the Company's issued share capital, the Directors have undertaken not to exceed the appropriate limits set out in the guidelines issued by the Investment Association in relation to Resolutions 10, 11 and 12 of the AGM Notice. 

 

The number of ordinary shares in issue at the date of this announcement is 199,054,325.

Notes to Editors

 

Record is a specialist currency manager and provider of currency hedging services for institutional clients. Founded in 1983, Record has established a market leading position as a currency manager. Specifically, the Group has a leading position in managing Currency Hedging and Currency for Return for institutional clients.

The Group has four principal reporting lines:

-      Dynamic Hedging, where Record seeks to eliminate the impact of currency movements on elements of clients' investment portfolios that are denominated in foreign currencies when these movements are expected to result in an economic loss to the client, but not to do so when they are expected to result in an economic gain;

-      Passive Hedging, where Record seeks to eliminate fully or partially the economic impact of currency movements on elements of clients' investment portfolios that are denominated in foreign currencies;

-      Currency for Return, in which Record enters into currency contracts for clients with the objective of generating positive returns; and

-      Multi-Product, where the client mandate includes combined hedging and return-seeking objectives.

Record (LSE: REC) was admitted to trading on the main market of London Stock Exchange plc on 3 December 2007.
