Certain Directors of Kingfisher plc, whose names are set out below, technically
became interested on that date in 50,996 Kingfisher plc ordinary shares of 155/

plc for the benefit of its employees and those of its subsidiaries) exercising
rights to require Kingfisher to allot shares under arrangements for it to
satisfy share options granted to employees.
Each of the below-named Directors of Kingfisher plc technically ceased to be
interested on that date in 50,996 Kingfisher plc ordinary shares of 155/7p each
