*All measures which are described as “adjusted” represent Alternative Performance Measures (“APMs”) and are defined and reconciled in the annual report for each year and are applied consistently. The policy on the use of APMs is included in the annual reports which can be found on results and presentations.

**We do not class contingent consideration or IFRS 16 lease liabilities as debt for the purpose of quoting a gross debt or net cash figure.

***Adjusted EPS (fully diluted) increased from 71.8p to 75.1p (5%), which compares to a 12% increase in 2022. The reduction in growth is primarily due to the increase in statutory UK corporation tax
