Taylor Wimpey - 28 December 2018

Item 1: Approve Share Buybacks

Shareholder approval is being sought to authorise the Company to make market purchases of its ordinary shares following the inclusion of a typographical error in the resolution granting authority at the 2018 AGM. This error meant that the authority granted at that meeting has already expired.

As there is currently no authority in place, the Board proposes the standard share repurchase authority for the UK market with period ending until the earlier of 25 October 2019 (being the later date set out in in the resolution granting authority at the 2018 AGM) and the conclusion of the Company's 2019 AGM
