Joint Share Ownership Plan


The Plan was established by the Directors on 13 October 2010 and provides for the acquisition by employees, including Executive Directors, of beneficial interests as joint owners (with the Trust) of Ordinary Shares in the Company upon the terms of a JOA. The terms of the JOA provide, inter alia, that if jointly owned shares become vested and are sold, the proceeds of sale will be divided between the joint owners so that the Trust receives the initial market value of the jointly owned shares ("IMV") plus an amount representing interest on the IMV (the "carrying cost"), and the employee is entitled to the balance (if any). It is a further term of each JOA that the employee may, in certain circumstances, acquire the Trustee's interest in the jointly owned shares for a consideration equal to the amount of the accrued carrying cost. Jointly owned shares will vest if the employee remains employed within the Quayle Munro group of companies for specified minimum periods.  


The jointly owned shares have been issued jointly to the Directors named above and the Trust at a price of 812.5 pence per share, this being the closing price of a share in the Company on Friday 5th November 2010.  Of the aggregate subscription monies for the Directors' jointly owned shares, totalling £961,935, the Directors named above have paid the sums noted below, with the balance having been paid by the Trustee out of monies advanced on loan to the Trustee by the Company.
