JPMorgan Cazenove Limited, which is authorised and regulated by the             
Financial Services Authority in the United Kingdom, is acting as financial      
adviser and broker to the Company in relation to the Proposals and no one       
else in connection with the Proposals and will not be responsible to anyone     
other than the Company for providing the protections afforded to clients of     
JPMorgan Cazenove Limited nor for providing advice in relation to the           
Proposals or any other matter or arrangement referred to in this                
The Directors accept responsibility for the information contained in this       
announcement.  To the best of the knowledge and belief of the Directors         
(who have taken all reasonable care to ensure that such is the case), the       
information contained in this announcement is in accordance with the facts      
and does not omit anything likely to affect the import of such information.     
The distribution of this announcement in jurisdictions other than the           
United Kingdom may be restricted by law and therefore any persons who are       
subject to the law of any jurisdiction other than the United Kingdom should     
inform themselves about, and observe, any applicable requirements. This         
announcement has been prepared for the purpose of complying with English        
law and the Code and the information disclosed may not be the same as that      
which would have been disclosed if this announcement had been prepared in       
accordance with the laws of jurisdictions outside the United Kingdom.           
Notice to shareholders of the Company in the United States: the Proposals       
relate to the shares of a company incorporated in England and Wales and are     
proposed to be implemented by means of a scheme of arrangement provided for     
under English company law. A transaction effected by means of a scheme of       
arrangement is not subject to the tender offer rules under the United           
States Securities Act of 1933, as amended. Accordingly, the Proposals are       
subject to the disclosure requirements and practices applicable in England      
and Wales to schemes of arrangement which differ from the disclosure            
requirements of the tender offer rules under the United States Securities       
Act of 1933, as amended. Financial information included in the relevant         
documentation will have been prepared in accordance with accounting             
standards applicable in the United Kingdom that may not be comparable to        
the financial statements of companies in the United States.
