·              A special resolution adopting new articles of association in substitution for the existing articles of association.

Any buyback may be funded from the Company's own cash resources or, if appropriate, from short term borrowings. The maximum price payable per share (exclusive of expenses) must not exceed the higher of: (i) 105% of the average middle market quotations for the five business days preceding the date of purchase; and (ii) the higher of the last independent bid and the highest current independent bid on the London Stock Exchange. Shares repurchased will either be held in treasury or cancelled.

The Company instructs J.P. Morgan Securities plc to act as its broker in respect of its buy-back transactions. Any buybacks will be undertaken in accordance with the Company's discount control policy. This arrangement is in accordance with Chapter 12 of the UKLA Listing Rules and the Company's general authority to repurchase shares.
