Notification is given, pursuant to the authority granted at the Annual General

total of 1,855,767 Ordinary shares of 25p each in the capital of the Company
were purchased today by the Company at a price of 475.00p per share. These
shares will be held in treasury.

Following this transaction and in conformity with the provisions of the
