NOTES:
- The 'For' vote includes votes given at the Chairman's discretion and details of proxy votes cast are included to in the table above.
- As at 2.30pm on 5 May 2021 the total number of issued ordinary shares of Unilever PLC was 2,629,243,772 and Unilever PLC did not hold any ordinary shares in treasury. 1,053,291 shares (including ordinary shares represented by Unilever PLC ADSs) were held by or on behalf of companies in the Unilever Group. The voting rights attaching to those ordinary shares are not exercisable. Therefore, as at 2.30pm on 5 May 2021 and excluding those ordinary shares (including ordinary shares represented by Unilever PLC ADSs) held by or on behalf of companies in the Unilever Group, the total number of Unilever PLC ordinary shares with exercisable voting rights was 2,628,190,481.
 
A 'Vote withheld' is not a vote in law and will not be counted in the calculation of the proportion of the votes 'for' and 'against' a resolution.
 
In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2 copies of all the resolutions passed, other than ordinary business, will be submitted to and available for inspection at the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at: https://data.fca.org.uk/#/nsm/nationalstoragemechanism.  A copy of the resolutions can also be found in the Chairman's Letter and Notice of Meeting which is available on our website: www.unilever.com/AGM

Words such as 'will', 'aim', 'expects', 'anticipates', 'intends', 'looks', 'believes', 'vision', or the negative of these terms and other similar expressions of future performance or results, and their negatives, are intended to identify such forward-looking statements.

Because these forward-looking statements involve risks and uncertainties, there are important factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those expressed or implied by these forward-looking statements. Among other risks and uncertainties, the material or principal factors which could cause actual results to differ materially are: Unilever's global brands not meeting consumer  references; Unilever's ability to innovate and remain competitive; Unilever's investment choices in its portfolio management; the effect of climate change on Unilever's business; Unilever's ability to find sustainable solutions to its plastic packaging; significant changes or deterioration in customer relationships; the recruitment and retention of talented employees; disruptions in our supply chain and distribution; increases or volatility in the cost of raw materials and commodities; the production of safe and high quality products; secure and reliable IT infrastructure; execution of acquisitions, divestitures and business transformation projects; economic, social and political risks and natural disasters; financial risks; failure to meet high and ethical standards; and managing regulatory, tax and legal matters. A number of these risks have increased as a result of the current Covid-19 pandemic. These forward-looking statements speak only as of the date of this announcement. Except as required by any applicable law or regulation, the Group expressly disclaims any obligation or undertaking to release publicly any updates or revisions to any forward-looking statements contained herein to reflect any change in the Group's expectations with regard thereto or any change in events, conditions or circumstances on which any such statement is based.
