13. Additional information:


Silchester International Investors LLP ("Silchester") acts as investment manager for the clients detailed in Question 4 above (our "Clients").  In acting for our Clients, Silchester are given full discretion over their investments and are empowered to vote on their behalf.  However, we do not act as our Clients' custodian and therefore shares are not held in our name but in the name of each Client's custodian bank. 

 

The change in Silchester's holdings was due to a series of transactions over a series of different trading days.  Details of the number of shares held before the change (shown in Section A) represent the shares held by Silchester's clients immediately before the date of triggering this Notice of Substantial Shareholder's Interest (a notification of crossing 5% of the company's voting rights) and not as of the last trading day before which this disclosure was triggered.

 

Notification is provided based on a total voting rights figure of 1,131,842,109.
