Interests of Directors
Following payment of the Liberty International PLC ("Liberty International")
2002 interim dividend on 16th September 2002, the Trustee of the Liberty
International Share Incentive Plan ("SIP") advised the Company on 8th October
2002 that it had utilised the dividend proceeds to purchase 1,180 Liberty
International ordinary shares of 50p each. The shares were purchased on 26th
September 2002 at a price of 557p per share and have been allocated to relevant
SIP participants. The shares, classified as "dividend shares" under the SIP,
must be held in the Trust for a minimum period of three years, except in
certain circumstances as specified in the rules of the SIP.
The Trustee of the SIP now holds a total of 58,960 shares, representing 0.02%
of the issued ordinary share capital of Liberty International, registered in
the name of Capita IRG Trustees Limited.
The Executive Directors of Liberty International are deemed to be interested in
the shares held by the Trustee by virtue of their being beneficiaries under the
Trust, and following this allocation, the Executive Directors' individual SIP
holdings have each increased by 11 shares. Consequently Messrs Fischel, Abel,
Badcock, Saggers, Sher and Smith now each hold 550 shares (0.0002% of the
issued share capital) in the SIP.
