Note 1: In our announcement of 22 April 2008 and our letter to shareholders dated 25 April 2008, we advised that, subject to approval by shareholders at the General Meeting to be held on 14 May 2008, the Company would issue new ordinary shares instead of paying the 2008 interim dividend.

The data starting with and including the Final 2005 Dividend has been restated to reflect the two for one bonus issue of ordinary shares in May 2007.
