Results of voting at the General Meeting 
 
Metro Bank is pleased to announce that, at the General Meeting convened pursuant to the Notice of General Meeting, the 
Resolutions (as set out in the Notice of General Meeting) were duly passed with very strong support with over 90% of 
shareholders voting in support of all resolutions. 
 
Background 
 
On 8 October 2023, Metro Bank Holdings PLC ("Metro Bank" or the "Company") announced that it had secured an 
inter-conditional GBP325 million capital raise, comprising GBP150 million of new equity and GBP175 million of new MREL notes, 
and a debt refinancing package in respect of GBP600 million of its outstanding debt securities (together, the "Capital 
Package"). The GBP150 million of new equity was structured as a firm placing of 500,000,000 new ordinary shares at an 
issue price of 30 pence per new ordinary share (the "Firm Placing"). 
 
On 9 November 2023, Metro Bank published a combined prospectus and circular (the "Prospectus") relating to the 
admission of the new ordinary shares issued as part of the Firm Placing. The Prospectus contained a Notice of General 
Meeting seeking shareholder approval to undertake the Firm Placing and to approve the waiver of the obligation of the 
Concert Party to make an offer under Rule 9 of the City Code on Takeovers and Mergers. 
 
Capitalised terms defined in the Prospectus have the same meaning when used in this announcement, unless otherwise 
defined in this announcement.

Number of votes: For: 58,050,459 (90.90%) Against: 5,813,897 (9.10%) Withheld: 27,918 
 
In order to comply with the City Code, only Independent Shareholders' votes were counted for the purpose of the vote on 
Resolution 4. 
 
The Firm Placing remains subject to the satisfaction or, if applicable, waiver of certain conditions which are set out 
in Part I (Letter from the Chair of Metro Bank Holdings PLC) of the Prospectus. 
 
It is expected that Admission of the New Shares will become effective and that unconditional dealings will commence at 
8.00 a.m. on or around 30 November 2023 (London time), or such other date as the Company may notify. 
 
Copies of the resolutions passed at the General Meeting will be submitted to the Financial Conduct Authority and will 
shortly be available for inspection on the National Storage Mechanism at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/ 
nationalstoragemechanism. 
 
Capital Package 
 
The Capital Package remains subject to receipt of the subscription funds from the investors, and to the admission of 
the New Shares to listing on the Official List and to trading on the London Stock Exchange's main market for listed 
securities. The Company will release further announcements in respect of the progress to completion of the Capital 
Package as required.
