1. The total voting rights of the Company as at 1 March 2022 were disclosed in the notice of the AGM published on 2 March 2022 and were unchanged at the time of convening the AGM, being 491,100,768.

2. Pursuant to the Companies (Guernsey) Law, ordinary and special resolutions of the members are passed on a show of hands if passed by members who vote in person and by persons who vote as duly appointed proxies of members entitled to vote.

3. Ordinary resolutions are passed if more than half (50%) of votes are cast in favour of the resolution.

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

5. Special resolutions are passed if more than 75% of votes are cast in favour of the resolution.

       These forward-looking statements are statements regarding AGA's 
       intentions, beliefs or current expectations concerning, among 
       other things, AGA's results of operations, financial condition, 
       liquidity, prospects, growth and strategies. The forward-looking 
       statements in this presentation are based on numerous assumptions 
       regarding AGA's present and future business strategies and 
       the environment in which AGA will operate in the future. Forward-looking 
       statements involve inherent known and unknown risks, uncertainties 
       and contingencies because they relate to events and depend 
       on circumstances that may or may not occur in the future and 
       may cause the actual results, performance or achievements of 
       AGA to be materially different from those expressed or implied 
       by such forward looking statements. Many of these risks and 
       uncertainties relate to factors that are beyond AGA's ability 
       to control or estimate precisely, such as future market conditions, 
       currency fluctuations, the behaviour of other market participants, 
       the actions of regulators and other factors such as AGA's ability 
       to continue to obtain financing to meet its liquidity needs, 
       changes in the political, social and regulatory framework in 
       which AGA operates or in economic or technological trends or 
       conditions. Past performance should not be taken as an indication 
       or guarantee of future results, and no representation or warranty, 
       express or implied, is made regarding future performance. AGA 
       expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release 
       any updates or revisions to these forward-looking statements 
       to reflect any change in AGA's expectations with regard thereto 
       or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which 
       any statement is based after the date of this announcement, 
       or to update or to keep current any other information contained 
       in this announcement. Accordingly, undue reliance should not 
       be placed on the forward-looking statements, which speak only 
       as of the date of this announcement.
