373.96 pence per share and 17 Matching shares acquired at 367.17 pence per
share (33 Partnership shares and 16 Matching shares for Mark Hanafin and Sam
Laidlaw with lower residual balances). Both the Partnership and Matching
elements are registered in the name of the Trustee.

(2) The Trustee had transferred 20,000 shares from Equiniti Corporate Nominees
Limited AESOP1 (Allocated shares) to Equiniti Corporate Nominees Limited
AESOP2 (Unallocated shares). The transfer was made following the forfeiture of
shares, under the rules of the SIP, by participants who have left the group
since the last purchase and the shares had been used towards the current
month’s allocation of Matching shares.

Notes:

The SIP is made available to all UK employees and operates as follows:

  *Each month the Trustee uses participants’ contributions (which may not
    exceed £125 per participant per month) to purchase shares in the market.
    These shares are called ‘Partnership shares’.
  *At the same time the Company allots to participants via the Trustee one
    ‘Matching share’ for every two Partnership shares purchased that month (up
    to a maximum of 22 Matching shares per month).
  *Participants may change their monthly savings rate whenever they wish.
    However, Directors and others bound by the Company’s Securities Dealing
    Code (the “Code”) may not make such a change during a close period or when
    otherwise prohibited from dealing by the Code.
