Editorial note:



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.
