Centrica Board Composition: Non-Executive Directors

Centrica plc’s Board has decided to extend Paul Rayner’s term as a
Non-Executive Director through to December 2014.

As reported in its 2012 Annual Report and Accounts, Paul Rayner was due to
step down from the Board in December 2013 following nine years’ service as
Chairman of the Audit Committee and Non-Executive Director. However, following
the announcement that Sir Roger Carr will step down as Chairman, the Board has
agreed that it would be appropriate for the new Non-Executive appointment to
be made by the new Chairman. The decision follows consultation with a number
of the Group’s major shareholders.

While both Paul Rayner and Mary Francis will exceed their nine-year terms, the
Board remains committed to good governance, particularly with regard to the UK
Corporate Governance Code.
