   (1)          Includes discretionary votes. 

(2) A 'vote withheld' is not a vote in law and is therefore not counted in the calculation of the proportion of votes 'For' or 'Against' a resolution.

(3) Full details and the text of the resolutions, together with explanatory notes, were set out in the Vistry circular to shareholders and notice of the GM, which is available on Vistry's website at www.vistrygroup.co.uk/general-meetings (the "Vistry Circular")

(4) As at 6.30pm (London time) on 25 August 2023 (being the time at which ordinary shareholders who wanted to attend, speak and vote at the GM were required to have their details entered on Vistry's Register of Members), the issued share capital was 347,235,591 ordinary shares of 50p each with 1,500,000 shares held in Treasury. Therefore, the total voting rights of the Company is 345,735,591.

While pleased that all resolutions have been approved by a majority of shareholders, the Board notes that a significant number of shareholders opposed the approval of the Revised Policy (Resolution 1) and the associated amendments to the LTIP (Resolution 2). Ahead of the General Meeting, the Board and the Remuneration Committee consulted extensively with shareholders in relation to the proposed revised Directors' Remuneration Policy, which was designed following the significant enlargement of the business and to incentivise the creation of shareholder value over the long-term. The Board is grateful to shareholders for their engagement and acknowledges that through the engagement process shareholders expressed different perspectives. The Company remains committed to ongoing shareholder engagement and will continue to do so to ensure that the Company understands shareholders' views and is able to consider feedback, as well as to provide clarity on the Company's approach to remuneration going forward.

In accordance with UK Corporate Governance Code requirements, the Board confirms that it will publish an update on shareholder engagement within six months of the General Meeting.

Capitalised terms used but not defined in this announcement have the same meaning as set out in the Vistry Circular.
