BAB Babcock International Group plc

Etude l' AG du 13/07/2017

Item 2: Approve the Remuneration Report. The structure is weighted more towards rewarding long-term performance.  The payout is adequately aligned with performance.  The Company has changed the policy so that accelerated vesting in the event of a change of control is not possible. However, the quantum is considered excessive given the length of service during the year.
Item 3: Approve the Remuneration Policy. The changes proposed to the Remuneration Policy strengthen the alignment between pay and performance by decreasing reliance on EPS for the STI and introducing a holding period for the LTI.  In addition, the changes adequately address shareholder concerns over accelerated vesting from the previous general meeting.  The remuneration structure is considered acceptable and quantum is not excessive in the policy, though it was during the year.   
Item 16: Re-appoint the Auditors. Although PricewaterhouseCoopers LLP was first appointed in 2002, an audit tender process was completed during the previous financial year.  Therefore, their tenure does not exceed ECGS guidelines.
