Any vote that gave the Chairman discretion has been included in the 'For' votes. A vote withheld is not a vote in law and is not counted towards the votes cast 'For' or 'Against' a resolution. The resolution will shortly be available for inspection at the National Storage Mechanism document viewing facility at https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism .

The Board expects that, subject to the satisfaction and/or waiver (where applicable) of the other conditions precedent to the Disposal, completion will occur in the fourth quarter of the 2022 calendar year.
