Under the contingent contract, the Company may purchase a fixed number of
shares each week in the period to 2 May 2013, at a fixed price that is at a
discount to the market price prevailing at the start of the contract period.
The contract is contingent in that it would terminate early, and no further
shares would be purchased, if the Company's share price increases to a
pre-determined suspension level during the contract period. This suspension
level has been set at the start of the contract and is between 104% and 110%
of the Company's share price at the start of the contract.
