Notes:

 

1.        A form of proxy to be used for the Meeting is enclosed.  It shall be by signed by the appointor or his attorney duly authorized in writing or, if the appointor is a company, either under the company's seal or under the hand of an officer or attorney duly authorized.

 

2.         A Shareholder entitled to attend and vote at the meeting is also entitled to appoint a proxy to attend, speak and vote instead of him/her. A proxy need not be a Shareholder of the Company. Appointment of a proxy will not preclude a Shareholder from attending and voting in person at the meeting.

 

3.         The instrument appointing a proxy (and any power of attorney or other authority under which it is signed, or a certified copy of such authority) shall be deposited at the Company's share registrars' office, Link Asset Services, PXS1, The Registry, 34 Beckenham Road, Beckenham, Kent, BR3 4ZF, United Kingdom by 7:00 am on 7 March 2018 (London time). Completion and return of an instrument appointing a proxy shall not preclude a member from attending and voting in person at the meeting.

 

4.         A proxy shall have no powers, as such, at any meeting at which his appointor is present in person or, being a company, by a duly authorized representative. If two or more proxies are present at a meeting and in accordance with their terms of appointment seek to vote on the same matter in respect of the same shares, the chairman shall in his absolute discretion decide which vote to accept and which vote or votes to disallow, or he may disallow all such votes.

 

5.         Please indicate with a cross in the appropriate box how you wish the proxy to vote. In the absence of any indication, the proxy will exercise his/her discretion as to whether and how he/she votes.

 

6.         The "vote withheld" option is provided to enable you to instruct your proxy not to vote on any particular resolution. However, it should be noted that a "vote withheld" in this way is not a vote in law and will not be counted in the calculation of the proportion of votes "for" and "against" a resolution.

 

7.        In the case of joint holders of a share, if two or more of the joint owners are present in person or by proxy, the vote of the senior who tenders a vote shall be accepted to the exclusion of the votes of the other joint holders, and for this purpose seniority shall be determined by the order in which the names stand in the register of members of the Company in respect of the joint holding. If only one is present in person or by proxy he may vote on behalf of all joint owners.

 

8.        The time by which a person must be entered on the register of members of the Company in order to have the right to attend and vote at the meeting is close of business on 7 March 2018 (being not more than 48 hours prior to the time fixed for the meeting) or, if the meeting is adjourned, such time being not more than 48 hours prior to the time fixed for the adjourned meeting. Changes to entries on the register of members after that time will be disregarded in determining the right of any person to attend or vote at the meeting.

9.        Any corporation which is a Shareholder can appoint one or more corporate representatives who may exercise on its behalf all of its powers as a Shareholder provided that they do not do so in relation to the same shares.

 

10.       A Form of Direction is enclosed for use by holders of Depositary Interests representing Ordinary Shares. To be effective, the Form of Direction for use at the meeting and the power of attorney or other authority (if any) under which it is signed, or a notarially or otherwise certified copy of such power or authority, must be deposited with Link Asset Services, The Registry, 34 Beckenham Road, Beckenham, Kent BR3 4TU, United Kingdom by no later than 7:00 am on 6 March 2018 (London time). Alternatively, Depositary Interests may be voted through the CREST Proxy Voting Service in accordance with the procedures set out in the CREST Manual. Instructions should be transmitted so as to be received by no later than 7.00 am on 6 March 2018.

 

11.       Depositary Interest holders wishing to attend the Annual General Meeting should contact the Depositary at Link Market Services Trustees Limited, The Registry, 34 Beckenham Road, Beckenham, Kent BR3 4TU or by Email: info@linkgroup.com by no later than 7:00 am on 6 March 2018.
