The notification also included the matters set out below.


Kestrel is the investment manager to Kestrel Opportunities, a cell of Guernsey Portfolios PCC Limited ("Kestrel Opportunities"), and various other clients. This disclosure relates to indirect Shares and voting rights in the Company that are managed by Kestrel on a discretionary basis.

Of the Shares purchased, 25,000 were acquired on behalf of Kestrel Opportunities and following this transaction, Kestrel Opportunities holds (and consequently Mr Royde is deemed to have a beneficial interest in) 6,269,664 Shares in the Company.  The remaining 25,000 Shares were purchased on behalf of Kestrel's other discretionary clients, in which Mr Royde has no beneficial interest, who, following this transaction, hold a further 660,045 Shares in the Company.


On a combined basis, Kestrel indirectly holds voting rights over 6,929,709 Shares in the Company, which represents approximately 10.96% per cent of the Company's issued share capital.
