     (Schroder Nominees),

(ii) 26,535,924 shares held in (a) unit trust(s) operated and managed by
     another wholly-owned subsidiary, Schroder Unit Trusts Limited (SUTL), and

(iii) 15,805,964 shares neither registered nor to be registered in the name of
      Schroder Nominees. The registration details are shown on the schedule

An affiliated company, Schroder Investment Management North America Inc (SIMNA

shares.  This holding is registered or to be registered in the name of Chase
Nominees Limited.

    treated as having respectively under the Companies Act 1985 (the Act), and
