* Includes discretionary votes.

1. Response to voting results for resolution 3 'Approval of the directors’ remuneration policy'
At Experian, we greatly value the views and thoughts of our shareholders, and we strive to create an executive pay structure which is both incentivising for our executive directors and fully aligned with shareholders’ long-term interests. As such, whilst our vote on the report on directors’ remuneration (resolution 2 above) improved slightly on the previous year, we were disappointed to see a reduction in support for our Directors’ remuneration policy ('Policy') at the 2017 AGM.
Since the AGM, we have met with a number of our key shareholders and investor representative bodies to better understand their views about our Policy, and we will continue to hold more meetings over the coming months. We are currently considering how we might best respond to the views expressed in these meetings.
