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.
