Fresnillo - AGM 21 May 2019

Item 3: Advisory vote on the Remuneration Report

The structure is not weighted to rewarding long term performance as there is no LTI. Furthermore, there are a number of metrics used for the STI for which alignment of pay with performance is difficult to demonstrate as they may be difficult to measure.  Nevertheless, as the quantum is moderate, we recommend shareholders vote in favor.

 Item 16: Approve the Remuneration Policy

There are ongoing concerns with the remuneration policy.  In particular, pay is not aligned with long-term performance as there is no LTIP.  Additionally, no part of the bonus is deferred.  Furthermore, the disclosure surrounding how the bonus metrics are evaluated is unclear, making it difficult to assess the alignment between pay and short-term performance. For these reasons, we recommend shareholders oppose.
