These reference yields will be used to determine the consideration paid for
each series of Sterling and Euro Debentures that are accepted for purchase
after expiration of the tender offer.

The expiration date of the tender offer is 11:59 p.m., New York City time, on
March 18, 2013, unless extended (the “Expiration Date”). Holders who have not
already tendered their Sterling and Euro Debentures may continue to do so at
any time prior to the Expiration Date, in accordance with the procedures
described in the Offer to Purchase. Holders who validly tender and do not
withdraw their Sterling and Euro Debentures on or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York
City time, on March 4, 2013, unless extended (the “Early Participation Date”),
and whose Sterling and Euro Debentures are accepted for purchase pursuant to
the tender offer, will receive the Total Consideration, which includes an
early participation amount of £50.00 or €50.00 per £1,000 or €1,000 principal
amount, as applicable, of Sterling and Euro Debentures validly tendered and
accepted for purchase (the “Early Participation Amount”). Holders validly
tendering their Sterling and Euro Debentures after the Early Participation
Date and on or prior to the Expiration Date will not be entitled to receive
the Early Participation Amount. Tenders of Sterling and Euro Debentures may be
validly withdrawn at any time at or prior to 5:00 p.m., New York City time, on
March 4, 2013, but not thereafter. The Sterling and Euro Debentures are held
in book-entry form only through the facilities of Clearstream Banking, société
anonyme (“Clearstream”) or Euroclear Bank S.A./N.V. (“Euroclear”). The
deadlines set by your custodian or nominee, or by Clearstream and Euroclear,
for the submission and revocation of tender instructions for the Sterling and
Euro Debentures may be earlier than the relevant deadlines specified above.
