Disclosure requirements of the Takeover Code (the "Code")

Under Rule 8.3(a) of the Code, any person who is interested in 1% or more of
any class of relevant securities of an offeree company or of any paper offeror
(being any offeror other than an offeror in respect of which it has been
announced that its offer is, or is likely to be, solely in cash) must make an
Opening Position Disclosure following the commencement of the offer period and,
if later, following the announcement in which any paper offeror is first
identified.

An Opening Position Disclosure must contain details of the person's interests
and short positions in, and rights to subscribe for, any relevant securities of
each of (i) the offeree company and (ii) any paper offeror(s). An Opening
Position Disclosure by a person to whom Rule 8.3(a) applies must be made by no
later than 3.30 pm (London time) on the 10th business day following the
commencement of the offer period and, if appropriate, by no later than 3.30 pm
(London time) on the 10th business day following the announcement in which any
paper offeror is first identified. Relevant persons who deal in the relevant
securities of the offeree company or of a paper offeror prior to the deadline
for making an Opening Position Disclosure must instead make a Dealing
Disclosure.

Under Rule 8.3(b) of the Code, any person who is, or becomes, interested in 1%
or more of any class of relevant securities of the offeree company or of any
paper offeror must make a Dealing Disclosure if the person deals in any
relevant securities of the offeree company or of any paper offeror. A Dealing
Disclosure must contain details of the dealing concerned and of the person's
interests and short positions in, and rights to subscribe for, any relevant
securities of each of (i) the offeree company and (ii) any paper offeror, save
to the extent that these details have previously been disclosed under Rule 8. A
Dealing Disclosure by a person to whom Rule 8.3(b) applies must be made by no
later than 3.30 pm (London time) on the business day following the date of the
relevant dealing.

If two or more persons act together pursuant to an agreement or understanding,
whether formal or informal, to acquire or control an interest in relevant
securities of an offeree company or a paper offeror, they will be deemed to be
a single person for the purpose of Rule 8.3.

Opening Position Disclosures must also be made by the offeree company and by
any offeror and Dealing Disclosures must also be made by the offeree company,
by any offeror and by any persons acting in concert with any of them (see Rules
8.1, 8.2 and 8.4).

Details of the offeree and offeror companies in respect of whose relevant
securities Opening Position Disclosures and Dealing Disclosures must be made
can be found in the Disclosure Table on the Takeover Panel's website at
www.thetakeoverpanel.org.uk, including details of the number of relevant
securities in issue, when the offer period commenced and when any offeror was
first identified. If you are in any doubt as to whether you are required to
make an Opening Position Disclosure or a Dealing Disclosure, you should contact
the Panel's Market Surveillance Unit on +44 (0)20 7638 0129.
