AGM 2016 poll results
 
 
 
BP PLC (the "Company")
 
The Company held its Annual General Meeting earlier today and announces the results of the voting below.
 
Mr. Carl-Henric Svanberg, Chairman, said -
 
After an outstanding operational year for the company in a very difficult oil price environment, we were pleased that we had the support of our shareholders on all the binding votes at today's meeting.
 
We were disappointed that the advisory vote for this year's remuneration report was not carried. We have already spoken to a number of shareholders and have a continuing dialogue. They are seeking changes to our remuneration policy for the future. We will continue that engagement and will bring a revised policy to our next AGM in 2017.
