Notes

1. Please note a 'vote withheld' is not a vote under English law and is not counted in the calculation of votes 'for' and 'against' a resolution.

2. As at 6.30pm on 25 April 2022, the issued share capital of the Company consisted of a total of 558,147,304 ordinary shares made up of: (i) 507,022,927 voting ordinary shares of 6 79/86 pence each, which carry one vote each; and (ii) 51,124,377 limited-voting ordinary shares of 6 79/86 pence each, which carry one-tenth of a vote each. LSEG does not hold any shares in treasury. Therefore, the total number of voting rights in LSEG as at that time were 512,135,365.

3. Ordinary shareholders are entitled to one vote per share. Limited-voting ordinary shareholders are entitled one-tenth of a vote per share.

4. The percentages above are rounded to two decimal places.

5. Results of the poll will also be available shortly on the Company’s website: https://www.lseg.com/investor-relations/shareholder-services/agm-informa...
