Completion of the sale of Synovate is currently anticipated to occur on or around 30 September 2011 and the Return of Capital and Share Consolidation is expected to take place as soon as practicable thereafter.  The timing of Completion is dependent upon, amongst other things, the satisfaction (or waiver) of the Anti-Trust Conditions. If there is any delay in obtaining such clearances the timing of Completion may change and the timing of the Return of Capital and Share Consolidation will be changed to reflect this.

 

An announcement informing shareholders of Completion and the timing of the Return of Capital and Share Consolidation will be made in due course.  

 

In accordance with Listing Rule 9.6.2, a copy of the resolutions passed at the General Meeting has been submitted to the National Storage Mechanism and will shortly be available for inspection at: www.hemscott.com/nsm.do. The results of the meeting will also be published on the Company's website at www.aegisplc.com.
