Imperial Brands PLC (IMB.LN) said Thursday that a resolution to approve the board of directors' remuneration report, proposed at the annual general meeting, was passed by shareholders but with a relatively low count.
The tobacco company--which houses cigarette Winston, rolling tobacco Golden Virginia and rolling paper Rizla among its brands--said 87% of the total votes cast approved the remuneration report. All other resolutions put forward at the meeting were approved by over 95% of total votes cast.
Shares at 1032 GMT were down 6.0 pence, or 0.3%, at 1815.60 pence.
