Deferred Share Award Plan

Under the rules of the deferred share award scheme (`the scheme') awards are subject to uplift for notional dividends made or paid during the vesting period. Accordingly the dividend shares shown below have been notionally added to and form part of the award. In respect of the interim dividend of 11.44 pence per share paid on 1 February 2013, the number of additional shares awarded has been calculated using the closing share price on 1 February 2013 of 731.5 pence per share. Under the terms of the scheme, awards will (which are structured as options to acquire shares in the company with a zero exercise price) be satisfied by using shares purchased in the market or by payment of a cash amount equal to the market value, on the date of exercise, of the shares (including dividend equivalent shares) held. Newly issued or treasury shares cannot be used to satisfy awards under this plan. No directors of the company can participate in the scheme. The awards will normally become capable of exercise after the end of the vesting period and must be exercised within 90 days thereafter. The ability to exercise an award is not subject to satisfying a performance target.
