(2)  that, under the rules of the Provident Financial Performance Share Plan ("PSP"), the Provident Financial Savings Related Share Option Scheme ("SAYE"), and the share award arrangement between the Company and Chris Sweeney, adjustments had been made to awards and options granted under those plans to participants to take account of the Rights Issue.  The adjustments operate so as to increase the number of Ordinary Shares subject to awards and options by a factor of 1.36669790 and, in the case of options, to reduce the exercise price per share by a factor of 0.731690922.  The adjustments to the awards and options held by PDMRs under each plan are set out below.
