Terry Smith, Chief Executive, commented:

"The financial results for the first half of 2011 demonstrate the strength of
the business in challenging market and competitive conditions, and the benefit
from the actions taken to re-establish the position of the business in North
America and to develop our activities in Risk Management Services and
Information Sales.

The world's financial markets remain unsettled and, although it is difficult to
predict market conditions accurately, it seems reasonable to expect that there
will be periods of market volatility and heightened activity in the remaining
months of the year.

The enduring strength of the business is the valuable service it provides to
clients through its ability to create liquidity through price and volume
discovery to facilitate trading in a wide range of financial instruments. We
believe that we are well positioned to continue to provide a valuable service
to clients and that our offering can be developed to meet the various OTC
market rules and regulations that will be introduced in both the United States
and Europe."

TULLETT PREBON PLC

INTERIM MANAGEMENT REPORT - for the six months ended 30 June 2011

Overview

The financial results for the first half of 2011 demonstrate the strength of
the business in challenging market and competitive conditions, and the benefit
from the actions taken to re-establish the position of the business in North
America and to develop our activities in Risk Management Services and
Information Sales.

The world's financial markets remain unsettled, but after a good start to the
year, market activity slowed in the second quarter. During the first half
overall, market activity was more subdued than in the same period last year,
which benefited from the increased volatility experienced in May 2010.

Revenue of £454.8m was 4% lower than reported for 2010. Most of the reduction
reflects the impact of the closure during the second half of last year of six
satellite offices in North America which accounted for 2.5% of the group's
revenue in the first half of 2010, and the adverse impact of currency movements
on the translation of the non-UK operations compared with the same period last
year. Adjusting for these items, revenue was 1% lower than in the prior year,
which was a good performance in the market conditions.

In North America we have re-established our presence in those product areas
affected by the raid on the business in 2009. Including the twenty-six strong
credit broking team who started with the business in early January 2011, broker
headcount on the affected desks is now largely back to the levels before the
defections in the second half of 2009. New senior management for the region
started in June this year. The appointment of a new Chief Executive Officer for
the region, supported by the newly created role of Chief Operating Officer, has
increased our regional management capability at an important time as we
continue to develop our business in the Americas.

Approval from the President of Brazil for the Company's acquisition of
Conven�o, one of the leading and most respected inter-dealer brokers in
Brazil, was received on 12 July 2011. The acquisition is expected to complete
later this month. Conven�o has 43 brokers facilitating client trading in
derivatives, securities and exchange traded futures, and will provide the base
for further expansion in both Brazil and in other countries in South America.

We have continued to develop our electronic broking capabilities. Our
electronic broking strategy continues to focus on the hybrid model, offering
electronic platforms which complement and support our existing strong voice
broking capability. This approach is consistent with the nature and operation
of the majority of OTC product markets for which voice liquidity is essential.
Our platforms also provide a pure electronic broking option for those clients
who wish to trade without any broker support, as well as "auction" capability
through tpQUICKDEAL that facilitates clients trading anonymously at mid market
price levels with instant volume matching. tpQUICKDEAL technology is also
provided as a standalone platform for some products.

The development of our electronic interest rate swap platform, tpSWAPDEAL, has
been completed and the platform is in the process of being rolled out to
clients. The platform is based on market leading technology supplied by
MillenniumIT to provide extremely low latency trading, and has been created
with the flexibility to give clients the ability to transact either directly or
via voice brokers, and to be adaptable to operate within both the current
trading landscape and under the regional regulatory environments that may
develop in the future.

We have also continued to invest in our Information Sales and Risk Management
Services activities, which have delivered significant revenue growth during the
first half. In Information Sales we have expanded both the customer base,
particularly in Asia, and the breadth of the data offered to customers. Demand
for independent pricing data, notably in risk management and compliance
functions, continues to drive revenues. Tullett Prebon Information was named
Best Data Provider (Broker) at the Inside Market Data Awards in May 2011, a
clear endorsement of our position as the leading provider of OTC price
information and data to market participants. In Risk Management Services the
tpMATCH platform for interest rates has been extended to cover an increased
number of currencies, and the matching platform technology, which allows
clients to execute trades to reduce risk, can be extended to other asset
classes.

Revenue from products supported by electronic platforms, together with
Information Sales and Risk Management Services revenue, has increased compared
with the first half of 2010, and accounted for just less than one fifth of
total revenue. This proportion is expected to increase further as electronic
platforms are launched in new product areas such as interest rate swaps.

Operating profit for the first half was £80.2m, 5% lower than reported for
2010. Excluding the net credit or charge arising in each period from the costs
and income relating to the major legal actions between the Company and BGC,
which are discussed below, underlying operating profit for the first half was 
£79.4m (2010: £87.3m) with an underlying operating margin of 17.5% (2010:
18.3%). The reduction in the operating margin is primarily driven by the
increase in the broker compensation to revenue percentage, which at 58.7% in
the first half is 0.8% points higher than in the comparable period. This
reflects the higher broker compensation to revenue percentage currently being
incurred in North America following the significant investments made in
rebuilding the business, and the initial inefficiencies as new hires build up
to their full run rate of revenue. Broking support costs are little changed,
with broking support headcount of 688 at the end of June, 2% lower than at June
last year.

Our key financial and performance indicators for the first half of 2011
compared with those for the first half of 2010 are summarised in the table
below.

Litigation

The legal action that the Company had taken in London against BGC, two of BGC's
senior directors and ten former Company brokers, in response to a raid by BGC
in early 2009 on the London business, was settled during the period. As part of
the settlement it was agreed that no further statement would be made by either
side about the settlement or the dispute.

Legal action continues to be pursued against BGC and former employees in the
United States. The subsidiary companies in the United States directly affected
by the raid on the business by BGC in the second half of 2009 have brought a
claim against BGC in arbitration pursuant to the rules of the Financial
Industry Regulatory Authority ("FINRA"). The FINRA arbitration is expected to
be heard during 2012.

The claim by BGC Market Data and certain of its affiliates, alleging that the
Company misappropriated data supplied to its information sales subsidiary in
violation of a redistribution agreement, is scheduled to be heard in
arbitration under the rules of the American Arbitration Association during
August 2011. A provision for the estimated cost of the resolution of this claim
has been included in the first half results.

OTC Market Regulation

There has been significant progress during the first half in the process of
agreeing and implementing reforms designed to strengthen the financial system
and to improve the operation of the financial markets.

In the United States, however, due to the delay in agreeing the definition of
certain reference terms, it is now unlikely that the final detailed rules and
regulations to apply the principles of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and
Consumer Protection Act governing the regulation and operation of OTC
derivatives markets will be issued by the CFTC and SEC much before the end of
this calendar year. The implementation of the mandatory clearing requirement
for swaps and the requirement that such instruments are traded through Swap
Execution Facilities (SEFs) is therefore likely to be during 2012.

In Europe, the European Market Infrastructure Regulation (EMIR) is still under
legislative review. This regulation contains provisions governing the mandatory
clearing requirement and trade reporting requirements for derivatives. The
European Parliament and the Council expect to reach agreement by the end of the
year. The proposed revisions to the Markets in Financial Instruments Directive,
commonly known as MiFID II, which is expected to include provisions for
permissible execution venues for OTC derivative transactions, is expected to be
published in October 2011. It is envisaged that the EMIR and MiFID II reforms
will come into force during 2013.

As we have previously commented, we agree with the objectives and support the
direction of these proposed reforms. We believe that their introduction will be
positive for our business as the proposals formalise the role of the
intermediary in the OTC markets. We have a broad and successful electronic
broking offering and we are well positioned to successfully respond to, and
benefit from, both regulatory and market developments.

Regulatory Capital

The Company's application for a renewal of its waiver from consolidated capital
resources requirements was approved by the FSA on 8 June 2011. The renewed
investment firm consolidation waiver runs for five years and will expire on 6
June 2016. The terms of the renewed waiver are the same as those under the
previous waiver. Each investment firm within the group must be either a limited
activity or limited licence firm and must comply with its individual regulatory
capital resources requirements. Tullett Prebon plc, as the parent company, must
continue to maintain capital resources in excess of the solo notional capital
resources requirements for each relevant firm within the group.

Revenue and Operating Profit

The tables below analyse revenue and operating profit for the first half of
2011 compared with the equivalent period in 2010. A significant proportion of
the group's activity is conducted outside the UK and the reported results are
therefore impacted by the movement in the foreign exchange rates used to
translate the results of non-UK operations. In order to give a more complete
analysis of performance, revenue and operating profit growth rates for the
first half of 2011 shown below are presented both as reported and using
translation exchange rates consistent with those used for 2010. The commentary
below refers to growth rates at constant exchange rates.

The increase in revenue in Treasury Products reflects growth in forward FX,
including non-deliverable-forwards, and in FX options, offset by a reduction in
revenue from cash and deposits.

In Interest Rate Derivatives, strong growth in emerging market interest rate
swaps and in interest rate options was offset by lower activity in the
traditional interest rate swaps markets, reflecting the low level of interest
rates in the world's major economies throughout the period.

The overall decline in revenue in Fixed Income reflects the lower level of
market activity in government bonds in Europe offset by higher revenues in
credit products, particularly corporate bonds in North America, reflecting the
investments that have been made in rebuilding our presence in that area,
including the twenty-six strong credit broking team who started with the
business in early January 2011.

The reduction in revenue in Equities reflects the exit of the cash equities
business that was part of the satellite office closures in the second half of
last year, and a reduction in market activity and revenue in equity
derivatives.

In Energy, after adjusting for the revenue from the satellite offices that were
exited, revenue was unchanged compared with last year.

The Information Sales business has continued to benefit from increasing
customer demand for both real time and end of day data, and from an expansion
of the customer base. The post trade Risk Management Services business has
continued to gain market share in electronic LIBOR reset matching through the
tpMATCH platform.

Europe

Revenue in Europe was 7% lower than last year. We have continued to increase
broker headcount, particularly in corporate bonds, with total broker headcount
at the end of June of 833, 4% higher than at June last year. Average revenue
per broker was 9% lower than in the same period a year ago. Europe's revenue
also includes most of the revenue from Information Sales.

Revenue in Treasury Products and Interest Rate Derivatives was slightly lower
than last year, with growth in emerging markets products, and in FX options and
interest rate options, offset by lower volumes in cash and in the traditional
interest rate swaps markets. In Fixed Income, revenue from government bonds was
lower reflecting the very strong performance in the comparable period, with
revenue from credit products unchanged compared with a year ago. The quality of
the business and the value of the service it provides to clients in credit
products were recognised by the business being voted the number one broker in
both investment grade and high yield bonds in Credit magazine's 2011 European
Interdealer Broker rankings in May this year. Revenue in equity derivatives was
lower than last year reflecting the lower level of activity in the market. In
Energy, revenue from natural gas products was higher, with revenue from oil
products and power products little changed. The new base metals desk, broking
LME contracts, commenced operation in January.

North America

Revenue in North America has reduced by 4%. Adjusting for the impact of the
closure during the second half of last year of the six satellite offices in the
region, revenue was 4% higher than a year ago. Broker headcount in North
America has increased to 466 at the end of June, 9% higher than a year ago
excluding the satellite offices, but average revenue per broker reduced by 3%
on the same basis.

The revenue performance by product group in North America was mixed. In
Treasury Products, revenue in forward FX and FX options increased strongly,
reflecting buoyant markets in those products especially in emerging markets
currencies. In Fixed Income, revenue from credit products, primarily corporate
bonds, doubled compared to a year ago reflecting the investment made in that
area, but this was partly offset by lower activity in mortgage backed
securities and repos. Similarly to Europe, revenue in Interest Rate Derivatives
and in equity derivatives was lower, reflecting the market conditions. Revenue
in Energy products, excluding the impact from the exit of the satellite
offices, was higher, with good growth in natural gas and oil products.

Asia

Revenue in Asia has increased by 13%. Broking revenue in the region has
benefited from an increase in broker headcount to 367 at the end of June, 2%
higher than a year ago, and from an increase in average revenue per broker
reflecting the continued recovery of market activity in the region. The
increase in revenue also reflects the development of the Risk Management
Services business, much of which is operated from Singapore.

The rate of growth in revenue in Asia was held back by the performance in
Japan, where revenue was slightly lower than last year. We successfully dealt
with the disruption caused by the earthquake in March, and we were able to
provide full services to clients in Japan from both Tokyo and from temporarily
relocated staff in Singapore. The relocated staff returned to the office in
Tokyo within two weeks. Activity in that centre, however, has not yet recovered
to the levels before the earthquake.

In the other centres in the Asia Pacific region, volumes in forward FX,
especially in non-deliverable-forwards for non-convertible currencies have
continued to increase, and the region has also benefited from good revenue
growth in interest rate derivatives in both convertible and non-convertible
currencies.

Operating profit in Europe has reduced by 6%. The operating profit in 2011
includes a net credit arising from the costs and income relating to the major
legal actions between the Company and BGC, compared with a net charge in the
comparable period. The underlying operating margin in 2011 was 1.6% points
lower than in 2010 mainly reflecting the impact of the reduction in revenue, as
fixed costs have not reduced in line. Broker employment costs as a percentage
of revenue were also slightly higher than in the same period last year.

Operating profit in North America has fallen by one-third with a reduction in
operating margin to 6.0%. The fall in operating profit and margin reflects the
decline in revenue and an increase in the broker employment costs to revenue
percentage due to the general increase in the costs of employment in the light
of competitor action, the costs associated with new hires, and the initial
inefficiencies as new hires build up to their full run rate of revenue. The
operating profit in 2011 also includes a net charge relating to the major legal
actions between the Company and BGC.

In Asia Pacific operating profit has more than doubled reflecting the higher
broking revenue compared to a year ago, together with the growth in Risk
Management Services which has a higher operating margin than broking. Broker
employment costs as a percentage of revenue are lower than a year ago due to
the benefit of higher revenue and the development of the scale of the equity
derivatives business in Tokyo which commenced operations during the first half
of last year and was still building up to the anticipated revenue run rate.

Finance Expense

The increase in the net cash finance expense reflects the higher interest and
commitment fees payable on the new bank facilities entered into in February
2011. Non cash finance income comprises the expected return and interest on
pension scheme assets and liabilities.

Taxation

The effective rate of tax on adjusted PBT is 28.5% (2010: 31.5%). The effective
rate of tax reflects the estimated effective rate for the full year. The
reduction in the effective rate compared with 2010 results from the reduction
in the UK corporation tax rate to 26.5% for 2011 from 28.0% for 2010, and an
increase in the proportion of taxable profits generated in the UK and Asia
relative to the US.

Exchange rates

The income statements and balance sheets of the group's non-UK operations are
translated into sterling at average and period end exchange rates respectively.
The most significant exchange rates for the group are the US dollar, the Euro,
the Singapore dollar and the Japanese Yen. Average and period end exchange

Cash flow                                        3.2      12.1

Reflecting the normal seasonal pattern of working capital movements, trade
receivables and net settlement balances were higher, and bonus accruals were
lower, at June than at December last year, resulting in operating cash flow for
the first half of the year that is lower than operating profit. The working
capital cash flow in the first half also reflects an increase in the broker
sign-on prepayment balance, as new sign-on payments in the first half were
higher than the amortisation.

The triennial actuarial valuations of the two defined benefit pension schemes
in the UK undertaken in 2010 concluded that each scheme has a significant
funding surplus. As a result, the group agreed with the trustees of each scheme
that, with effect from February 2011 until the next actuarial valuation,
contributions will be equal to the schemes' administration expenses.

Acquisition and investment expenditure in the first half of 2011 includes a
deferred consideration payment relating to the acquisition of Aspen, investment
in membership of the LME, and the payment of consideration to the former
employer of the credit broking team who joined the business in North America in
January 2011.

The movement in cash and debt is summarised below.

At 31 December 2010 the group's outstanding debt comprised £141.1m Eurobonds
due July 2016, the remaining £8.5m of the Eurobonds due August 2014, £210m of
bank debt drawn under an amortising term loan maturing in February 2014, and a
small amount of finance leases. In addition, the group had a committed £50m
revolving credit facility that was undrawn. On 8 February 2011 the Group
entered into new bank facilities comprising a £120m amortising term loan
facility and a committed £115m revolving credit facility, replacing the bank
facilities discussed above. The revolving credit facility remained undrawn
throughout the period.

Dividend

The interim dividend for 2011 has been set at a level equal to 50% of the final
dividend paid for the previous year. This approach to setting the interim
dividend is expected to continue.

Outlook

The world's financial markets remain unsettled and, although it is difficult to
predict market conditions accurately, it seems reasonable to expect that there
will be periods of market volatility and heightened activity in the remaining
months of the year.

Broker headcount at the end of the first half was 4% higher than at the end of
last year. We will continue to invest in the development of the business
through broker hires, the development and introduction of electronic platforms
which complement and support our strong voice broking capability, and the
continued extension of Information Sales and Risk Management Services. The
acquisition of Conven�o will provide the base for expansion both in Brazil and
in other countries in South America.

The enduring strength of the business is the valuable service it provides to
clients through its ability to create liquidity through price and volume
discovery to facilitate trading in a wide range of financial instruments. We
believe that we are well positioned to continue to provide a valuable service
to clients and that our offering can be developed to meet the various OTC
market rules and regulations that will be introduced in both the United States
and Europe.

Notes to the Condensed Consolidated Financial Statements
for the six months ended 30 June 2011

1. General information

The condensed consolidated financial information for the six months ended 30
June 2011 has been prepared in accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency
Rules (DTR) of the Financial Services Authority and with IAS 34 `Interim
Financial Reporting' as adopted by the European Union (EU). This condensed
financial information should be read in conjunction with the statutory accounts
for the year ended 31 December 2010 which were prepared in accordance with
International Financial Reporting Standards (IFRS) as adopted by the EU.

The statutory accounts for the year ended 31 December 2010 have been reported
on by the Company's auditors, Deloitte LLP, and have been delivered to the
Registrar of Companies. The report of the auditors on those accounts was
unqualified and did not contain a statement under section 498(2) or (3) of the
Companies Act 2006.

The condensed consolidated financial information for the six months ended 30
June 2011 has been prepared using accounting policies consistent with IFRS. The
interim information, together with the comparative information contained in
this report for the year ended 31 December 2010, does not constitute statutory
accounts within the meaning of section 434 of the Companies Act 2006. The
financial information is unaudited but has been reviewed by the Company's
auditors, Deloitte LLP, and their report appears at the end of the interim
financial report.

2. Accounting policies

The condensed consolidated financial statements have been prepared on the
historical cost basis, except for the revaluation of certain financial
instruments. The Group has considerable financial resources both in the regions
and at the corporate centre to comfortably meet the Group's ongoing
obligations. Accordingly, the going concern basis continues to be used in
preparing these condensed consolidated financial statements. The condensed
consolidated financial statements are rounded to the nearest hundred thousand
pounds (expressed as millions to one decimal place - £m), except where
otherwise indicated.

The same accounting policies, presentation and methods of computation are
followed in the condensed financial statements as applied in the Group's latest
annual audited financial statements for the year ended 31 December 2010, except
as described below.

The Group has adopted the amendment to IAS 32 `Financial Instruments:
Presentation' regarding the classification of rights issues, the amendment to
IFRIC 14 `IAS 19 - The Limit on a Defined Benefit Asset, Minimum Funding
Requirements and their Interaction' regarding prepayments of a Minimum Funding
Requirement, IFRIC 19 `Extinguishing Financial Liabilities with Equity
Instruments', Improvements to IFRSs (2010), and the revised IAS 24 `Related
Party Disclosures'. The adoption of these amendments has not had any
significant impact on the condensed consolidated financial statements.

3. Related party transactions

Related party transactions are described in the 2010 annual report and accounts
in note 36 to the consolidated financial statements. There have been no
material changes in the nature or value of related party transactions in the
six months ended 30 June 2011.

4. Principal risks and uncertainties

Robust risk management is fundamental to the achievement of the Group's
objectives. The Group maintains a Risk Assessment Framework which identifies
risks within the following eight risk categories: credit risk, market risk,
operational risk, strategic and business risk, financial risk, reputational
risk, governance risk and regulatory, legal and human resource risk. A detailed
explanation of the above risks can be found on pages 16 to 19 of the latest
annual report which is available at www.tullettprebon.com. The directors do not
consider that the principal risks and uncertainties have changed since the
publication of the annual report for the year ended 31 December 2010. Risks and
uncertainties which could have a material impact on the Group's performance
over the remaining six months of the financial year are discussed in the
Interim Management Report.

5. Segmental analysis

Products and services from which reportable segments derive their revenues

The Group is organised by geographic reporting segments which are used for the
purposes of resource allocation and assessment of segmental performance by
Group management. These are the Group's reportable segments under IFRS 8
`Operating Segments'.

Each geographic reportable segment derives revenue from Treasury Products,
Interest Rate Derivatives, Fixed Income, Equities, Energy and Information Sales
and Risk Management Services.

Information regarding the Group's operating segments is reported below:

(b) Cash and cash equivalents

liquid investments with an original maturity of three months or less. Cash at
bank earns interest at floating rates based on daily bank deposit rates. Short
term deposits are made for varying periods of between one day and one week
depending on the immediate cash requirements of the Group, and earn interest at
the respective short term deposit rates.

Client settlement money represents balances held by the Group received as a
result of corporate actions relating to securities transactions.

Other current financial assets comprise short term government securities and
term deposits held with banks and clearing organisations.

On 8 February 2011, the Group entered into a new £235m credit agreement
consisting of a £120m amortising term loan facility and a £115m committed
revolving credit facility. These facilities replaced the previous facilities
outstanding at that date, a £180m term loan and a £50m committed revolving
credit facility that were due to mature in January 2012. The new term loan is
subject to repayments of £30m in each of February 2012 and February 2013 with 
£60m maturing in February 2014. The committed revolving credit facility, which
has not been drawn, will also mature in February 2014.

13. Legal Proceedings

The claim by BGC Market Data and certain of its affiliates, alleging that the
Company misappropriated data supplied to its information sales subsidiary in
violation of a redistribution agreement, is scheduled to be heard in
arbitration under the rules of the American Arbitration Association during
August 2011. A provision for the estimated cost of the resolution of this claim
has been included in the first half results. The amount claimed against the
Company is significantly higher than the amount provided. The outcome remains
uncertain and is dependent upon the conclusion of the arbitration process.

14. Events after the balance sheet date

Approval from the President of Brazil for the Company's acquisition of
Conven�o was received on 12 July 2011. The acquisition is expected to complete
during August 2011.

Directors' Responsibility Statement

The directors confirm, to the best of their knowledge, that the condensed set
of financial statements has been prepared in accordance with IAS 34 `Interim
Financial Reporting' as adopted by the European Union, and that the interim
management report herein includes a fair review of the information required by

The directors are responsible for the maintenance and integrity of the
corporate and financial information included on the Company's website.
Legislation in the United Kingdom governing the preparation and dissemination
of financial information differs from legislation in other jurisdictions.

Independent Review Report to Tullett Prebon plc

Introduction

We have been engaged by the Company to review the condensed set of financial
statements in the half year report for the six months ended 30 June 2011 which
comprises the Condensed Consolidated Income Statement, the Condensed
Consolidated Statement of Comprehensive Income, the Condensed Consolidated
Balance Sheet, the Condensed Consolidated Cash Flow Statement, the Condensed
Consolidated Statement of Changes in Equity and related notes 1 to 14. We have
read the other information contained in the half year report and considered
whether it contains any apparent misstatements or material inconsistencies with
the information in the condensed set of financial statements.

This report is made solely to the Company in accordance with International
Standard on Review Engagements (UK and Ireland) 2410 "Review of Interim
Financial Information Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity"
issued by the Auditing Practices Board. Our work has been undertaken so that we
might state to the Company those matters we are required to state to them in an
independent review report and for no other purpose. To the fullest extent
permitted by law, we do not accept or assume responsibility to anyone other
than the Company for our review work, for this report, or for the conclusions
we have formed.

Directors' responsibilities

The half year report is the responsibility of, and has been approved by, the
directors. The directors are responsible for preparing the half year report in
accordance with the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the United Kingdom's
Financial Services Authority.

As disclosed in note 1, the annual financial statements of the Group are
prepared in accordance with IFRSs as adopted by the European Union. The
condensed set of financial statements included in this half year report has
been prepared in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 `Interim
Financial Reporting', as adopted by the European Union.

Our responsibility

Our responsibility is to express to the Company a conclusion on the condensed
set of financial statements in the half year report based on our review.

Scope of Review

We conducted our review in accordance with International Standard on Review
Engagements (UK and Ireland) 2410, `Review of Interim Financial Information
Performed by the Independent Auditor of the Entity' issued by the Auditing
Practices Board for use in the United Kingdom. A review of interim financial
information consists of making inquiries, primarily of persons responsible for
financial and accounting matters, and applying analytical and other review
procedures. A review is substantially less in scope than an audit conducted in
accordance with International Standards on Auditing (UK and Ireland) and
consequently does not enable us to obtain assurance that we would become aware
of all significant matters that might be identified in an audit. Accordingly,
we do not express an audit opinion.

Conclusion

Based on our review, nothing has come to our attention that causes us to
believe that the condensed set of financial statements in the half year report
for the six months ended 30 June 2011 is not prepared, in all material
respects, in accordance with International Accounting Standard 34 as adopted by
the European Union and the Disclosure and Transparency Rules of the United
Kingdom's Financial Services Authority.
