7. Any additional information: 
It is anticipated that future exercises will be settled using both shares held
in the Employee Share Trust and new issue shares. 
Under the SOP, the vesting of options is subject to a performance requirement
based on average absolute total shareholder return growth over a three-year
vesting period (the option starting to vest above 10% per annum i.e. 0% at 10%,
with 100% of the option vesting for 22% per annum). In addition, the Company's
Earning per Share must not reduce over the three-year vesting period for
options to be capable of vesting. 
SOP - The exercise price and size of award is calculated with reference to the
average share price for the 3 days immediately prior to the date of grant. 
EBP - The number of EBP shares awarded was calculated using the 30-day average
share price for the period ending on the 31 March 2013 of 54p. The EBP award
represents the deferral element of the bonus awarded in respect of the
financial year ended 31 March 2013.
