On 2 January 2013, the Company

● held no preference shares in treasury; and
● accordingly, had total voting rights of 300,000 attached to its preference shares.
These total voting rights figures may be used by shareholders as the denominator for the calculations by which they will determine whether they are required to notify their interest in, or a change to their interest in, the Company under the Financial Services Authority's Disclosure and Transparency Rules.
To calculate the number of voting rights attached to a shareholding of ordinary shares, shareholders should multiply the number of ordinary shares held by 0.295.
