Publication of Prospectus

Further to the Company's announcement dated 9th January 2015, the Company confirms that it is preparing a prospectus for submission to the FCA for approval by them.  Once the prospectus has been approved and published, the Company's listing on the standard segment of the Official List will be cancelled (together with its trading on the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange) and it will then reapply for listing on the standard segment of the Official List (and for admission to the Main Market of the London Stock Exchange) as a diversified conglomerate.  If the FCA and the London Stock Exchange approve those reapplications, it is anticipated that cancellation of the listing and of admission to trading and readmission of the Company's shares to listing and to trading will be simultaneous.   The Company has not yet submitted a draft prospectus for approval nor made the applications for re-listing and readmission.  No timetable for the approval of the prospectus or the consideration of the reapplication to the Official List has yet been discussed or agreed with the FCA.  The Company will make further announcements in due course.
