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 decrease 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 'Situation previous to the Triggering transaction' above), represent the shares held by Silchester's clients as of the date of our last Notice of Substantial Shareholder's Interest and not as of the last trading day before which this disclosure level was triggered.

 

Notification is provided based on the total voting rights figure of 1,216,558,125
