** Special resolutions

The Company notes there was a sizable vote against Resolutions 12 & 13, representing 37.68% of votes cast on each resolution. Feedback received from certain shareholders indicated that some were concerned by the potential dilution caused by an allotment of shares, particularly on a non pre-emptive basis. The Board notes that it followed the Pre-emption Group Principles that the routine authority to disapply pre-emption rights should not exceed more than 5% of the ordinary share capital in any one year.
