Sainsbury, 04 July 2019

Item 2: Advisory vote on the remuneration report The structure is unacceptable. Although pay weighted more towards rewarding long-term performance, the difference is very slight. Additionally, the maximum bonus exceeds guidelines, accelerated vesting in the event of a change of control is possible, and qualitative criteria for the STI exceed guidelines. There is insufficient disclosure of targets for the annual bonus. Accordingly, we recommend that shareholders oppose this resolution.
