Halma PLC - Proxy report 19/07/2018

While there are no major concerns over the structure of pay, the level of disclosure is concerning. In order to fully evaluate the alignment of pay with performance, whether targets are challenging and the fairness of pay at different levels and groups in the Company, clear disclosure is important. Furthermore, it is not in the shareholders' interest if the Company's disclosures are not fully compliant with legal requirements. The Company has not explianed the reason why it does not want to disclose ex-ante STI targets.

Item 6: Re-elect the CEO

The CEO is a member of the Nomination Committee, which does not meet market practice or ECGS guidelines.
